Simplicity of means often translates to profound emotional and lyrical fulfillment. This recording by Tania Maria is a prime example of that tenet, as the Brazilian composer, singer and pianist teams with bassist Eddie Gomez in a set of spare, intimate performances. The minimal instrumentation underscores the strength of the material, which includes four originals by Maria and Correa Rei alongside songs attached to names like Roberto Carlos, Antonio Carlos Jobim and Luis Bonfa. Maria and Gomez prove ideal collaborators as they range from beguiling ballads to lightly swinging instrumentals. Her percussive piano improvisations mesh seamlessly with his quicksilver responses and rhythmic support. And Maria’s unique voice sounds as good as ever: soulful, buoyant and uplifting.
