CD Reviews

Heartbreakingly beautiful and joyous to the core....
Dennis J. Zeitlin, M.D. | San Francisco | 11/21/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"From one of the most soulful artists of any time comes songs of such depth and range of emotion that they take you to places in your heart, perhaps long ago savored and set aside. "I Live to Love You," with achingly haunting lyrics delivered from the depths of human connection can return you to the love you've perhaps taken for granted; or bind you closer to the ones you cherish."
Excellent all around
Carlos from Rio | 07/20/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A fine album of Brazillian music by the Divine One. There may be some forgettable numbers, but for the most part, they are winners. Triste and the Face I Love are delightful tropical colors, but the killer is Empty Faces, written by Milton Nascimento. But you have to feel sorry for him in having to sing next to Sarah. Sort of like sending someone to guard Michael Jordan. After hearing that tune, you wished she would have recorded with Jimi Hendrix, she certainly had the power to."
Sarah Vaughan and a Brazilian dream team of instrumentalists
Carlos from Rio | Rio de Janeiro, RJ Brazil | 11/20/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

This is the first of Sarah Vaughan's recordings in Brazil with Brazilian material and Brazilian instrumentalists.

Helio Delmiro on guitar, Sergio Barroso and Novelli on bass, Chico Batera and Wilson das Neves on drums, Jose Roberto Bertrami (from Azymuth) and Edson Frederico on piano make up the dream team among other guest soloists. Guitarrist Helio Delmiro specially shines on virtually all tracks!

Milton Nascimento and Dorival Caymmi sings along with Ms. Vaughan each one in their own compositions. A beautiful toast to those great composers but with neglectable results, unfortunately. Antonio Carlos Jobim plays the piano on his "Someone To Light Up My Life".

Repertoire showcases Bossa Nova and post-Bossa Nova standards, all sung in their English versions. A mix of obvious and not-obvious Bossa Nova for Americans, featuring the Bossa standard "The Day It Rained (A Chuva)" as composed by Durval Ferreira.
