E1 Music has announced the release of "Bossa Beleza" from Argentinean-born artist Gabriela Anders. This soulful collection of classic Bossa Nova songs from Anders, now a local New Yorker, has been released in Japan and will be available in the U.S. on September 29th, 2009. Gabriela's entire life has revolved around music. Her training began at an early age learning and playing the piano and classical guitar in her native Buenos Aires. Her father was jazz saxophonist Jorge Anders, who filled her childhood home with Afro-Cuban and Jazz influences, such as Stan Getz and Dexter Gordon. Gabriela's career really took off once she came to New York. A recent high school graduate, she found herself working with top producer Sergio George, and had the opportunity to record with Marc Anthony, Grover Washington Jr., Celia Cruz and Tahlia. Her first album, "Wanting," had a unique combination of pop, Latin, and jazz, prompting Vogue and People to describe her music as exotic and bold. Back in 2004 she had amazing success with a Billie Holiday tribute album entitled "Last Tango in Rio." Her music has also been featured in a Mercedes-Benz television ad campaign. On "Bossa Beleza" one hears Bossa Nova at its best with Brazilian classics such as "Dindi," "Folhas Secas," "One Note Samba" and "Agua de Beber." It's clear that artists such as Jobim and Gilberto have made quite an impression on this young star. But Anders is still an American girl who also has fun on this album with classic covers such as "Satisfaction" by the Rolling Stones and "September" by Earth, Wind and Fire. "Bossa Beleza" also features three original Anders compositions, completing this very special addition to the shelf of international lounge classics.

Gabriela Anders her 1998 debut "Wanting" is her best so far. Her Brazilian voice has that dark emotional mysterious sound that I really love. Supported by solid musicians (Rick Braun, Kirk Whalum, George Duke) this CD sounded great, a smooth polished LA jazz sound, and we played it very often. Than came the long wait for her second album in 2004: "Last Tango in Rio". Same warm voice, but with different musicians. This CD sounded very "thin", less smooth American, now more Brazilian, also not the tango sound you would expect from the title. It was less to my taste.
Now this CD, Bozza Belleza, her third album, released in 2009, is more to my taste. Same great voice again, and mostly the same musicians as played on her second album, but now the sound matured: this CD sounds much more rich and full. But I wish she did not do track #5: "I can't get no satisfaction". This song from the Rolling Stones just sounds weird with her voice and a Brazilian sounding band behind it.
我在2004年时曾经介绍过Gabriela Anders的专辑Last Tango In Rio
我很喜欢她替爵士吉他手Artie Truman的Superwoman (不是翻唱曲)
不过她在Kirk Whalum专辑中跨刀翻唱Chante Moore的Wey U就有点糟
分别是Earth Wind & Fire的September以及
Rolling Stones的(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction
Aqua De Beber就相当充满了夏日海滩的浪漫情调
就是专辑中最后三首Fantasia，Siempre Asi以及Sexy Ride
同样是唱Bossa Nova，她的功力就是比Lisa Ono略胜一筹!
