Dawn

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Timothy Monger
Acclaimed Mexican singer Magos Herrera and Spanish guitarist and producer Javier Limón combine to form the acoustic duo Magos & Limón. With her deep, sultry voice and impeccable, bluesy phrasing, Herrera has been referred to as the Latin Cassandra Wilson. Already a household name in her native country, she relocated to New York, immersing herself in the city's urban jazz culture. Limón's work as a producer is varied and prolific (Caetano Veloso, Wynton Marsalis, Paco de Lucía), but it is his rich flamenco guitar work on display on Magos & Limón's 2014 debut Dawn.

All Music Guide - Timothy Monger
Acclaimed Mexican singer Magos Herrera and Spanish guitarist and producer Javier Limón combine to form the acoustic duo Magos & Limón. With her deep, sultry voice and impeccable, bluesy phrasing, Herrera has been referred to as the Latin Cassandra Wilson. Already a household name in her native country, she relocated to New York, immersing herself in the city's urban jazz culture. Limón's work as a producer is varied and prolific (Caetano Veloso, Wynton Marsalis, Paco de Lucía), but it is his rich flamenco guitar work on display on Magos & Limón's 2014 debut Dawn. The duo's spare, poetic take on American and Latin jazz standards creates an evocative and sensual listen. From Miles Davis' "Blue in Green" to Antonio Carlos Jobim's "O Que Tinha de Ser" to Eden Ahbez's enduring classic "Nature Boy," Magos & Limón's intimate performances and subtle arrangements set the stage for the album's biggest strengths, Herrera's voice and Limón's soulful guitar work. Guitar and voice is a seemingly simple formula, but the depth of craft between these two musicians makes Dawn a sparkling debut for the duo.
