JUNE BISANTZ & ALEX NAKHIMOVSKY – “LOVE’S TANGO”
June Bisantz (vocals, lyrics) and Alex Nakhimovsky (piano, music, arrangements) make a terrific team. They have been recording and touring together since 2005 and their chemistry is obvious. They’re both in top form in this new album of original Latin/jazz songs. Whether delivering a samba, tango, bossa nova tune or Rachmaninoff-influenced string quartet prelude, the duo delivers, with vibrancy, sensitivity and charm.
Delights include “This Reverie,” “Prelude to a Wish,” Love’s Tango” “Ocean Dreams,” “It’s You” and the exquisite “A Wish That Came True.” Strings and the work of such outstanding musicians as guitarist Norman Johnson perfectly enhance the twosome’s musical vision. An air of breezy romance flows through this winning new album from Bisantz and Nakhimovsky.
