Editorial Reviews

Postales is Gaby Moreno's first major release. It features twelve studio recordings, including the radio single "Ave Que Emigra." Postales showcases Moreno's voice with a soulful pop, yet bluesy sound that she embraces during her years of singing and looking up to her signing idols Aretha Franklin, Ella Fitzgerald and Nina Simone. It has been quite some time that a soulful and very powerful voice enters the Latin music scene as the one that Moreno showcases. It is a long time coming and throughout her world tour with Ricardo arjona, the timing couldn't be more perfect.

Gaby Moreno has a smoky, bluesy, jazzy voice that will win over even the hardest of hearts. Making complete logical sense, Gaby's musical style is heavily influenced by the jazz and blues musical NYC scene she found herself immersed in for several years. Making more logical sense, Gaby's musical style is also influenced by her Latin American roots. Making little sense, yet working out wonderfully, Gaby mashes these genres into the incredible product that is 'Postales.' Hesitant about the success of such a mash-up within her Latin American peers, the predecessor to this album, 'Illustrated Songs,' featured a few Spanish-language songs interspersed among mostly English numbers. Gaby also admitted the difficulty of translating the sentiments embedded in American Blues and Jazz music into Spanish. On 'Postales,' Gaby throws all reservations to the wind and laces solely-spanish lyrics over a wide array of musical arrangements influenced by Blues, Jazz, and Latin American music.

No matter your understanding of Spanish, this album features an incredible amount of work and is worth more than a handful of listens. 'No Estoy Tan Mal,' 'Ave Que Emigra,' 'Blues del Mar,' and 'Quizas, Quizas, Quizas' are my favorite and magnificently show the diverse scope of Gaby's abilities. 'El Sombreron' is quite fun and (as with all the songs) an understanding of Spanish will only enhance the listener's experience. 'El Sombreron' is her take on the classic Guatemalan fairy tale, 'La Llorona,' which features a ghost-like woman kidnapping children who fail to obey their parents. Anyways, if nothing else motivates you, buy this album to support this incredible musical artist. I guarantee repeated listens will win you over.

This is what we've been waiting for. A true, original artist. A departure from all the mediocrity that pollutes our airwaves. Gaby Moreno distills that which is best in other traditions into her own unique style. What a voice!

I'm a bit of an amateur when it come to Spanish language music, but this as good as I've heard. Gaby's superb talent would shine on its own, but phenomenal and complex production and arrangement really bring this album to the next level. Well worth a listen! After playing it nonstop on spotify for a few weeks, I knew I had to buy it.

turned on to Gaby by Sister-In-Law, this album is very good. it's dificult for Spanish artists to make folk/blues rock music without sounding like they are trying to copy something they are not. this album is very good and is in my rotation with Enrique Bunbury, Jarabe De Palo and Los Pericos. listen to Illustrated Songs by Gaby before you buy, I was very disappointed as a lot of it sounded like it was from a musical, sorry I don't get the deal with musicals....

Gaby has this rare scarce combination of creativity, sweet vintage orientation, privileged bluessy voice, and thank God, anti-mainstream wonderful style in her authoring and singing. Don't miss this jewel.

I liked Gaby's first album, but the later albums started to show more style and growth on her part. I'm glad she started writing songs in Spanish because there aren't many artists that create this type of music in that language. Her music style is so varied that it's hard to say what genre it is, I guess this album is Spanish blues, 60s, 20s, folk, oldies, carnival? all of the above. The Juegos y Miedo song is sort of trippy which I thoroughly enjoy, but then she goes and writes the wonderful song, El Sombreron... c'mon give it up for her talents. So many of these songs are extremely catchy and beautifully written. This is one of those albums with melodies that you can replay over and over. This is exactly what I was looking for so I'm happy with it. Remarkably she sings the same, maybe better, in person so go to one of her shows if you can.

Gaby, if you're reading this... make a musical! En Spanglish.

I just recently discovered this hidden gem of an artist by the name of Gaby Moreno and I am now a true fan. What incredible and underrated talent. Her voice is unique and beautiful, capable of belting out throaty dixieland jazz melodies as well as Classic Spanish songs. Definitely 5 star talent, in my book.

I've seen Gaby twice already and she just always have a great performance. Her music is unique mainly within the latino community and her songs in english and spanish are beautiful. I got this cd to take it to her concert in LA and got it signed. Awesomeness.
