Brazilian Duos

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David R. Adler
Luciana Souza's well-received third record, Brazilian Duos, is a departure in two respects. First, the gifted vocalist is backed not by a jazz quartet, but rather by three different acoustic guitarists -- Romero Lubambo, Marco Pereira playing eight-string, and Walter Santos her father. Second, Souza turns away from original material and toward classic Brazilian songs by figures like Dori Caymmi, Luiz Gonzaga, Djavan, Jobim, Toninho Horta, and her parents, Walter Santos and Tereza Souza.

The range of moods is astounding, from the tongue-twisting virtuosity of the opening "Baião Medley" and the playfulness of "O Bolo" to the heartbreaking strains of "Pra Dizer Adeus," "Docemente," and "Suas Mãos." Souza's voice, poised and attractive enough on its own, becomes a thing of transcendent beauty when matched with these sparse yet vibrant accompaniments.
New York Times - Ben Ratliff
"Her midrange voice is amazingly controlled; it doesn’t put on airs, either with belting or smokiness. It is alert, directed, with undertones of calm conversation. It’s the sound of a well-rested intelligence. She makes good singing seem incredibly easy...."
Time Out New York
"With a musicality as informed and unaffected as hers, tradition is no burden."
