With tangos and Ellingtonia under his belt, this ever-curious occasional crossover classicist takes another break from the Berlin Staatsoper, the Chicago Symphony, and Bayreuth to dabble in an unfamiliar (to him) idiom. Though the results are about as spontaneous as a sunrise, this collection does cover a wide range of brief bits of Braziliana from inevitable tunes by Ary Barroso, Luiz Bonfá, and Antonio Carlos Jobim to songs by Milton Nascimento and Caetano Veloso and classical selections by Heitor Villa-Lobos and Darius Milhaud.
Vikki Carr is one of the best-loved and most accomplished entertainers in the United States, Latin America and Europe. She is celebrating her fifth decade of a career in which she has won three Grammy Awards and has released over 60 best-selling recordings. Her concert tours of 2006/2007 sold-out shows in the U.S., Mexico and South America. She has performed for the Queen of England, five United States Presidents, wartime soldiers in Vietnam and sold-out audiences around the world. She has worked in radio, television, film and theater. Her music embraces two languages and she is among the first artists to bridge the cultures of the United States and Latin America, paving the way for many performers today. The diversity of her rich voice is impressive. She can belt out the blues or touch the heart with a soft romantic ballad.
Vikki’s 1990 album Set Me Free ranks as one of her most impressive musical achievements. Her singing has never sounded more radiant, assured, and vocally enticing. All of the songs were written by the talented songwriting team of Roberto Levi and Bebu Silvetti with half of them being performed in English translations. This particular selection, sung in the original Spanish, is one of several great cuts that demonstrate Vikki’s dominance as the indisputable queen of the romantic ballad.
