Editorial Reviews

2009 release from the Brazilian vocalist. D'Improvviso recalls places and tastes connected to the Brazilian music of the past and in particular to the '60s. A genuine album touched by a singular Afro-Jazz sound, whose compositions show several aspects expressed by the different essences of the huge Brazilian music tradition. 14 tracks. Schema.

Rosalia's third album is a wonderful one. D'Improvviso, (which translates to "The Unexpected?" in Italian) is a return to the original style that fans loved on "Garota Moderna." The album has the Italian Jazz/Lounge arrangements of her debut album (with occasional addition of Brazilian instrumentation) that doesn't completely overpower her voice. Unlike her first Schema album, the instrumentation is live instead of electronic. Those who liked her first album, will still like this one too, I think.

She does several enjoyable boass novas and remakes of classic sambas (Quiem Quiser Encontrar O Amor -- which Suba also remade a few years back) and a few Bossa Novas. Carolinha Carol Bela is one of the first singles off this album, and it's a great album. If you can see the music video, it's also wonderful.

Overall, a great album.

[**** 1/2] From the thriving Brazilian community in Italy comes Rosalia de Souza's homage to the Afro-Brazilian and Latin jazz sounds of the 1960s. Four songs are composed by Tomaz Di Cuntro [Toto], who provides vocals; other songs come from the pen of Dori Caymmi, Jorge Ben, Antonio Paulo, Danilo Caymmi, and others. Supporting musicans, all Italian, give a smooth, sophisticated European fullness to the sound. It is far more jazz than carnvial in feel and mood, despite the variety of rhythms. Indeed, the engineering gives the recording a soft edge and slight flatness (positioning of instruments) to the sound. Because of its variety, modern writing, and jazz mellowness, I do enjoy this album and its distinctive contribution to contemporary Brazilian music.

I discovered Ms. DeSouza while listening to internet radio and bought 3 of her CDs including this one. Excellent bossa nova jazz

Nice feel of spending time in a jazz night club. It has a bit of the 60's vibe which is nice. I feel like I'm in a casino in the French Riviera inside a Lupin the 3rd movie.
