Gabriela has one of the most soothing voices in Jazz today.

This is one of those CD's that you can play all the way through without skipping a single track.

If you truly enjoy listening to smooth jazz, you have to get this CD.

I'd never heard of Gabriela Anders until the day I answered correctly an on-line music question. The prize was I won a CD, it being "Wanting" by Gabriela Anders. From the first track, "Fire of Love", I was instantly reminded of another of my favorite smooth jazz artists, Sade. The bass line riff is reminiscent of "No Ordinary Love" off Sade's "Love Deluxe" CD. I also dig the funky, horn-ladened groove of "You Know What It's Like". The reggae-flavored rhythm and bass that drives "Seven Days" is guaranteed to transport you to the islands; I can practically feel the ocean breeze as I lull the hours away in a hammock with a cold tropical drink in my hand. "Forever" is a sensuous duet with Eric Benet (Benet seemingly heavily influenced by Babyface on that song). My least favorite track is "The Girl From Ipanema". The song has nothing to do with Gabriela and everything to do with the fact that I just don't care for that song at all, no matter who sings it! Ella Fitzgerald, the immortal "First Lady of Song" herself did a version of that song, and I love Ella in every sense of the word, but not that song! For some odd reason, "Girl" just leaves me cold. For pure romantic pop, though, it's hard to beat "I'll Be Loving You", and "Basileria", the final track on the album, is a light and breezy scat-bop which Gabriela glides through effortlessly. Cover version of "Girl From Ipanema" aside, this is a very good album; I highly recommend it and look forward to her next creative efforts.

I first heard this CD by chance in San Diego two years ago, and Gabriela Anders immediately got my attention with her interpretation of Roberta Flack's song, "You Know What It's Like", which I absolutely love. I knew then and there that I had to have this CD. Everyone who enjoys Latin-infused jazz will consider this debut offering a treat! "Fire of Love" enthralls with its sensuous lyrics and music that caresses the soul. Gabriela also lends soft, seductive interpretation to the title track, "Wanting". My absolute favorite, though, is "Brasileira" which she glides effortlessly through, taking the listener to new heights. I love Brazilian jazz and I don't think I could ever get tired of this song. It makes me want to jump on a plane to Rio de Janeiro. "Brasileira" soothes, caresses and mesmerizes the senses. Gabriela Anders is an awesome talent with a voice like an angel and I hope to hear more from her in the future. This CD is definitely something to listen to in front of the fireplace or in the jacuzzi with someone you love with a chilled glass of White Zinfandel or Merlot. Buy it! You will not regret it.

To hear Gabriela Anders one can not help but to be reminded of Sade. As honorable as that may be, Ms. Anders voice may be "similar" to Sade's but her style is uniquely her own! Her rendition of Girl From Ipanema is so nice, smooth and jazzy, you actually feel the story come to life.
The CD flows so beautifully from song to song that I can't help but to play it over and over. If you like easy listening from a talented jazzy chanteuse, then "Wanting" is what you Want!!

This album left me "wanting"...wanting more of Gabriela Ander's music! I cannot listen to this enough! The lyrics and the melodies meld and transform the atmosphere into a warm, pulsating environment...I catch myself closing my eyes and letting her voice take over me....this album MOVES me! You don't hear her music, you FEEL it... It is perfect for detaching from a particularly hectic day at the office, to setting the ambiance needed for the deepest intimacy. You will not be disappointed!

I was first introduced and mesmerized with this wonderful artist on a day that I thought would continue to be disasterous. I turned on my local smooth jazz station WJCD 105.3. Low and behold they (radio station) sensed my mood and played her title cut "Wanting". I knew that this artist had the right stuff to transcend me into an after work relaxing mode/mood. This artist definitely knows her voice and knows how to manipulate the words and sounds to soothe the listener into a state of pure bliss. She read my mind when she recorded this CD. Kudos to Gabriela Anders.

I've been waiting to find a new jazz CD that offers something new and one that doesn't offer lame "smooth jazz" production. Gabriela Anders presents a beautiful destination of sound on 'Wanting'. Producer, Alain Mallet (known for his stellar work with Jonatha Brooke) also offers some surprising soundscapes for Anders to sing over, in addition to the other host of producers. I find the sound of this album to be very creative and mellow, and it somehow finds an effective mood to stay away from becoming overt and terrible smooth jazz... which I obviously can't stand. It's kind of like a patient combination of perhaps Sade and Swing Out Sister, in terms of what I've heard before I came across Anders. What is also interesting is that Anders writes the bulk of the album's material (something Diana Krall should perhaps strive to do as well) which is refreshing to see, in this age of constant rehashing of old jazz standards and arrangements VS those smooth jazzers. Anders' voice instantly pulls you in, so every song is good, but don't waste your time on track #4 "Forever" because I feel that it could have been kept off the album. Four words: basic production & Eric Benet. But from the Sade-esque "Fire of Love", to the swaying reggae tinged "Seven Days", to the native tongued "Fantasia", to the neo soul of "Love Is So Unkind", to the free flowing heavenly scat of "Brasileira", Gabriela Anders thoroughly showcases her talent. So put this album on and melt your lover's heart. And if you don't have a special someone, then find solace in Gabriela Anders' catchy yearning.
