Product Description

After so many years without the release of a new album, we are happy to introduce you to "Jungle", Astrud's new CD, recorded in the Summer of 2001. With the exception of two song titles ("Como Fué" and "The Look of Love"), the album is comprised of Astrud's original compositions, written in a rich variety of different rhythms and moods. The musicians backing Astrud's vocals are superb, and their performances filled with enthusiasm and feeling. Mark Lambert, Astrud's co-producer, guitarist, and sometimes partner in song-writing, is also an accomplished vocalist, and performs a duet with her on their composition, "Dancing". Astrud feels very privileged to have been able not only to assemble such an outstanding group of musicians, but also to collaborate on a duet with John Margolis (on the track, "In Spite of the Odds"), a musician, vocalist, songwriter whose work she greatly admires. We thank you in antecedence for buying Astrud Gilberto's "Jungle" CD, and hop! e that you will enjoy listening to it.

If you already have Astrud's older recordings and you crave new material from this artist then "Jungle" has a lot to offer. This CD is clearly a product of Astrud's Brazilian roots, chocked full of original South American themes that take the listener in lots of different directions. If you long to hear new selections performed in Astrud's style of the sixties then take a listen to "Como Fue" delivered with confidence in Astrud's very fine signature style. It's followed by a wonderful track called "Red Umbrella" with real cute lyrics that may well prove to be my favorite. Want an escape? Try on a soft piece called "Ocean Dreams" or if you are feeling adventurous there is a track of Brazilian rap to try on for size called "Rebola, bola." I've never heard anything quite like it before but if you give it a chance it might grow to fit you. Lots of diversity here!
Astrud must have had a lot of fun making these recordings. They aren't at all formal. Each track comes across as just a friendly collaborative jam session kind of thing. You may not identify with every single track but if you go exploring in "Jungle" I think you'll likely come away with some real treasures.

I just got this album in the mail and after loving her music for the last 12 years, I wasn't sure what to expect from the 21st century Astrud.
I'm thrilled to say that this a great album, with almost all of the songs written by Astrud herself.
I especially like "Red Umbrella", a smooth, cool, finger-snappin' jazzy number, but her surprising version of "The Look of Love" absolutely rips you out of your chair and makes you want to dance. It has an awesome, irresistible beat that contrasts nicely with her sweet and simple voice.
If you are even a casual fan of Astrud's, you will like this album. I can't wait to listen to it again...

This is an album for a sunny warm afternoon, a hot summer evening, or a rainy day when dreams are needed. Gilberto's voice is smooth as silk, and the songs on this CD are gentle and relaxing, while at the same time hot & exciting. It is like a trip to the beaches of Brasil. Ahhhh, Brasil!
