Barnes & Noble - Abraham Velez
Will the real divas please stand up? With her rags-to-riches story and hard-living past, Cape Verde's Cesaria Evora earns the title even before she opens her mouth. Sure enough, the diva gets her due on the opulent São Vicente -- Cesaria sounds sultry, mournful, and just plain wonderful as ever, her sensuous contralto and worldly wise humility raising the Cape Verdean morna to realms of Piaf-style art song. Orchestrator Jaques Morelenbaum collaborator with suave Brazilians Caetano Veloso and Tom Jobim is again on hand -- among others -- to command an exquisite array of string and horn settings, while the colorful guest roster features Veloso, Brazil's great ...

Barnes & Noble - Abraham Velez
Will the real divas please stand up? With her rags-to-riches story and hard-living past, Cape Verde's Cesaria Evora earns the title even before she opens her mouth. Sure enough, the diva gets her due on the opulent São Vicente -- Cesaria sounds sultry, mournful, and just plain wonderful as ever, her sensuous contralto and worldly wise humility raising the Cape Verdean morna to realms of Piaf-style art song. Orchestrator Jaques Morelenbaum collaborator with suave Brazilians Caetano Veloso and Tom Jobim is again on hand -- among others -- to command an exquisite array of string and horn settings, while the colorful guest roster features Veloso, Brazil's great songwriter-poet; Cuban legends Orquesta Aragón and Chucho Váldes; and blues mama Bonnie Raitt. Evora's wistful crooning is a cousin to the flat-out misery of Portuguese fado -- but leavened with African rhythm and island sunshine, tracks such as "Dor di Amor" and "Bondade e Maldade" lend a surprisingly festive flavor. Sparked by the success of the Buena Vista Social Club who likewise toiled in obscurity before finding fame in their careers' September, Evora's been paired lately with Cuban players, a combination that works, as Cesaria's music has a rustic maritime lilt all its own. "Linda Mimosa" takes a breezy trip into mambo territory, while Váldes provides delicate, yearning piano on the intimate torch song "Negue." Bonnie Raitt's poignant slide licks and crooning in Evora's native Kriolu! sound strikingly natural on the lovely duet, "Crepuscular Solidão." Those seduced by 1999's Grammy-nominated Café Atlantico should take at least as much delight in the barefoot diva's latest offering.
