CD Review: Bianca Rossini




CD Review: Bianca Rossini







Instead of choosing the safe path of recording brazilian classic songs, all compositions on Bianca Rossini debut album, Kiss of Brasil are originals, a bold move for this brazilian native living in California. But as it turns out, Rossini is not just a good singer, she is a talented songwriter, so the result is an album with a delicate sound and romantic, sometimes sexy lyrics. Most of the music were composed by the guitarrist Patrck Lockwood and by the various pianists on the abum, Peter Roberts, Marilyn Berglas, Steve Rawlins and Ken Hirsch,

The songs range in style from the MPB sounds (Musica Popular Brasileira) of "Circular" to the elegant Bossa Nova "Ipanema Paraiso", an homage to Ipanema in Rio de Janeiro. On Ipanema Paraiso, Rossini sensual vocals interlace beautifully with Jimmy Roberts saxophone.

Rossini playful phrasing captivates and seduces the listener in the bossas "Perfume de Verao", "Coracao de Oro" and "Tarde em Copacabana", another place in Rio that has inspired lots of songs.

Kiss of Brasil also includes the contagious rhythms of the samba "Verdadeiro Amor" and three beautiful ballads, "Nos Dois", "NoSilencio da Noite" and "Primeiro de Dezembro"

Tracks: Ipanema Paraiso, O Tempo Vai Contar, Nos Dois, Tarde em Copacabana, Verdadeiro Amor, No Silencio da Noite, Circular, Primeiro de Dezembro, Perfume de Verao, Corazon de Oro
