Tudo Azul

With the incredible output of jazz CDs by new artists in first decade of the 21st century, it is a challenge for someone to stand out with a debut recording. But vocalist/pianist/composer Susan Pereira, gifted with a beautiful voice, terrific keyboard chops and a knack for arranging, is the exception to the rule, backed by a strong rotating cast of musicians, including trumpeter Claudio Roditi, guitarist Romero Lubambo, multi-reed player Laura Dreyer (a former member of Diva) and trombonist Luis Bonilla, among others. Starting with her lively composition "West End P.A.," featuring a catchy wordless vocal and terrific chops at the keyboard. Everyone seems afire in the brisk setting of Antonio Carlos Jobim's "O Morro Não Tem Vez." She switches to singing in English in the breezy take of Milton Nascimento's "Nada Será Como Antes" and a haunting Latin arrangement of "Our Day Will Come" that features the leader overdubbed on numerous percussion instruments. The one instrumental is Pereira's "Tudo Azul," a driving samba showcasing Roditi's whimsical solo and Dreyer's exuberant alto sax. Highly recommended!
