The Spanish singer Carmen Cuesta has long had a love for the music of Antonio Carlos Jobim and other bossa nova composers, though her earlier CDs have focused more on originals co-written with her husband, guitarist Chuck Loeb. But bossa nova reigns supreme on this 2011 release, with Loeb contributing well-produced backgrounds for Cuesta's fresh, pleasing alto voice. Initially she worked on translating the Portuguese lyrics into Spanish, only to be stymied by legal issues after she was well underway with her work. In any case, Cuesta is able to convey the elegance of these timeless melodies. Her vocals capture the longing of the lyric to "Retrato em Branco e Preto" in a heartfelt performance. Cuesta is equally sensual in her interpretation of "Meditacao." Her flawless rendition of Luis Bonfa's "Manha de Carnaval" could easily be used in a film soundtrack. Cuesta and Loeb's daughters Christina and Lizzy are added on flutes for their mother's "Jobim," her warm tribute to her inspiration for this CD. Throughout the date, Chuck Loeb's orchestrations and acoustic guitar solos add to the beauty of Carmen Cuesta's performances. It's easy to understand why they enjoy making music together as documented in Mi Bossa Nova.

All Music Guide


Produced by Carmen Cuesta & Chuck Loeb

Recorded by Chuck Loeb, with additional recording by Brian Dunne, David Charles, Lizzy Loeb, Jaime Garrido, Christian Diener, David Mann and Howard Levy

Mixed and mastered by Klaus Genuit at Hansa Haus Studios, Bonn, Germany

Featuring an array of elegant interpretations of Jobim and other Brazilian composers, as well as two beautiful originals: "Jobim", and "Tormenta". Again she establishes Carmen Cuesta self as an artist of distinct class, with a rich warm palette of sounds and musicians.

But the most striking aspect of this CD is her singing. While Carmen has always been a communicator with her voice, one can now hear an artist who has reached that rare balance of emotional connection, with technical prowess, and of course the beautiful lilting quality that her fans instantly recognize. Ranging from the classic Bossa performance of "Fotografia", and "Meditacao", to the pure emotional yearning of "Modinha", "Manha de Carnaval", and "Retrato. She taps into a more upbeat, syncopated style on "Chega de Saudade", and "Triste", and then catches the listener off guard on the haunting "Pois E",where she displays a sultry, intimate quality as though she were channeling the spirit of Elis Regina.

Carmen and Chuck split their time between the United States and Spain with their two daughters, Christina and Lizzy and their pet sparrow, Tweedy.
