Singer/pianist/composer/lyricist Sue Maskaleris touches all aspects of music, bottom to top and demonstrates her extraordinary talent on this new CD that focuses on Brazilian jazz and jazz songs.
The core ensemble – Sue Maskaleris – vocals, piano, keyboards, synth strings, Wesley Amorim – guitars, 7-string guitars, Leo Traversa – bass, 5-string fretless bass, and Samuel Martinelli – drums. Add to this a lengthy group of guest performers and the result is a broad spectrum of musical liveliness!
The songs – Procrastination, Bliss, Love Will Overflow, March of the Refugee, Love is the Key, Renewal, Você Pra Mim, Valentine’s Day for One, Summer, and Fly Away.
Richly complex but ultimately soaring, this is a collection of exceptional music offered by a lady of note and her fine compatriots! Recommended. Grady Harp, January 21
