Carol Saboya -][- BELEZAS –Mp3– [AAM Music, 2012] –
During the second half of the 1960s, just after bossa nova had decisively conquered the musical world, the Festival Era dawned in Brazil and was largely responsible for ushering in what is known as the Golden Years of MPB (Brazilian Popular Music). Those festival contests brought countless major music talents to the public’s attention. Among them: composers Ivan Lins and Milton Nascimento, who went on to achieve enormous success at home and abroad, their music admired and interpreted by the foremost jazz musicians and singers in the world.
Carol Saboya, who first came on the music scene in 1996, long after the festivals’ heyday, has enjoyed a brilliant career as a bona fide Brazilian jazz singer—in her native Brazil as well as internationally—through her critically acclaimed performances and recordings. On this CD, she applies her enchanting voice and rich, fluid phrasing to the beloved songs of Lins and Nascimento, two of Brazil’s most celebrated musical geniuses of all time. -[Album Notes | CDBaby]-
