I have a list Song of the Siren is for discoveries like this. Yet it way NPR that introduced me to the music of Elis Regina, now I can face the world knowing that I can just press play and be immersed in the lovely contours of Regina's voice.
Such a great album, I think it should win a Grammy every year. Elis Regina beautiful voice is perfect for the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim.
Simplesmente by Dóris Monteiro transforms my world into a light romantic convertible and mixed drink adventure along the coast.
Elis Regina has one of the most enchanting voices i've heard. "Elis, Como E Porque" frames Regina's vocals at the center of crisp Brazilian Jazz. The sound is both intimate and expansive. Perfect for sunny rainy spring days.
