Viva Brazil

It's been said that Tania Maria's essence is most apparent in live performances, but on her accomplished new album, Viva Brazil, the talented vocalist, pianist, and composer proves that her exotic spirit can readily be captured in the studio. On 11 tracks she makes all her own, her unique blend of Brazilian and French-influenced jazz, funk, and pop is able to transform some classics such as Sidney Bechet's "Petite Fleur" and Antonio Carlos Jobim's "One Note Samba," into a remarkably fresh new sound that still maintains the core original beauty. The blending of her own "Ta Tudo Certo" with the bossa nova chestnut "Mas Que Nada" is so seamless that she has forged a new sensual creation. She even reworks some of her own songs, such as "Sangria," which gets enlivened by a vigorous percussive hook. Viva Brazil puts Tania Maria at the top of her three-decade long career. -- Jennifer Jarett
