Format: Audio CD
On the heels of the last few releases from Flora and Airto, you might be surprised to discover Perpetual Emotion is a vocal album very much in the jazz standard tradition.
Flora has recorded at least five of these songs before (it's at least the third time for San Francisco River and Escape), but make no mistake -- you've never heard them like this. Flora relies less on vocal effects (as she has in the past)or on the virtuouso pyrotechnics of her band mates, and more on passionate, flawless renderings of great songs.
Airto is subdued in a way that is appropriate for this venture, but gets to break loose with a burning drum solo on Airto's Jazz Dance. Flora is also backed by Fourth World bandmate Gary Meek on sax and talented newcomers to the Flora/Airto camp, pianist Christian Jacob and bassist Trey Henry. There's enough Brazil in this CD (particularly on Fotografia and Saudade),to satisfy long-time Flora and Airto fans, but with compostions by Ira Gershwin and Kurt Weill among others, this will also make fans of traditional female jazz vocalists sit up and take notice.
If this is not essential Flora, it is certainly fair to say you haven't heard the full breadth of talent she has until you've heard this CD.

Not much to add to the previous review except to remark on the fantastic sensitivity all the musicians on the wonderful record exhibit towards each other. The more I listen to this, the more I am struck by the fact that whether Flora is singing or someone else is playing a solo, the other musicians are all doing EXACTLY the right thing behind them. Apart from its artistic/inspirational qualities, it is a long time since I heard anything quite this well crafted.

I was into Flora and Airto Moreira and Tania Maria and George Duke and all them back in the day! A nice trip down memory lane! Timeless!

I've never really listen to Ms. Purim prior to checking this out, but I must say that it makes me want to pick up a few of her earlier efforts. The arrangements are accessible and calming, lending themselves especially to novices to jazz. I will certainly put this one on when I want a positive and sociable vibe!
