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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Uniquely-distinctive, not to mention fantastic! November 22, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magic! May 2, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best albums I've found this year! April 21, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great CD December 31, 2012
By lorenzo
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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....

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing voice January 10, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hispanic Blues December 9, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It is retro kitsch with a Hispanic twist. A wonderful album for those moments of nostalgia that you thought you had forgotten.
