Editorial Reviews

Review

... a moveable feast of Latin styles... [Her vocals are] beautifully shaped; her grasp of [the] archaic Judeo-Spanish style is remarkable. --Philip Van Vleck, Billboard Review

... an exceptional world-music ambassador... an album about hope and, by extension, music's role as a universally uniting force. --Chris Loudon, JazzTimes

Product Description

Dos Amantes, which means two loves in Ladino and Spanish, fuses the flavor of Sephardic music (the music of the Spanish Jews) with the sounds and colors of contemporary Latin jazz, a genre that shares many of the same cultural diasporic streams. The disc features sparkling arrangements by Latin jazz heavyweights Murray Low, Wayne Wallace, David Pinto (Susana Baca), and Oscar Stagnaro (Paquito D Rivera). On her previous CDs (Birds in Flight and Azucar de Amor), Parra included Sephardic repertoire that delighted critics and jazz fans alike. Upon being awarded a Zellerbach Family Foundation Grant, Parra was able to take the work of her new ensemble The Sephardic Music Experience to the next level, resulting in Dos Amantes groundbreaking explorations.

As on her previous CDs, Parra teamed up with producer Wayne Wallace, a major player on the Bay-area Latin jazz scene. In addition, Patti Cathcart Andress (Tuck & Patti) lent her expertise to this project as a consultant after becoming enamored with this music s unique beauty.

5.0 out of 5 stars World Music with a Groove. October 17, 2010
Format:Audio CD
It's hard to believe that such a fine performance has garnered so little attention. This is Ms. Parra's third effort and a highly inspired effort. Once again Wayne Wallace has brought in a group of excellent arrangements and first tier musicians who play comfortabley throughout Ms. Parra's global romp. What she accomplishes here is to weave the music into a spell whereby one is captivated rather by wave after wave of different, complex and compelling rhythms. It is all a seamless effort. And what a voice Ms. Parra brings to the mix. It is full of warm coloration and she blends it with the accompanists to where you sense her as another instrumentalist.

Highly Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music to live by, passion to die for March 2, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This music is a pure delight, and a real artistic achievement. I have listened to the CD five times to date, and the music reveals itself more richly each time. I have not yet chosen my favorite pieces, but I am moved by the feeling of each song, and impressed with Ms. Parra's gifts as a vocalist. He pitch is impeccable, her tone is luscious, and she sings with rhythmic drive and confidence. And, as if that were not enough, the arrangements are stunning, the band is extraordinary, and the audio quality is sparkling.
I have a few reservations though: 1.) my other CDs are green with envy, and fuming in their jewel boxes while Kat graces the air with music. 2.) my wife wants to take the CD for her car and office, and I am left pining for them both, and 3.) I should get some sleep, but Dos Amantes beckons another listening.
