Jazzinho/ Atlas

with Guida de Palma

Virtuoso vocalist and songwriter Guida de Palma and multi-instrumentalist Michele Chiavarini have come together to form Jazzinho. This London based outfit records and performs a repertoire of original material in an idiosyncratic style that Guida calls Jazzinho (pronounced jazz-EEN-yo). Jazzinho, loosely translated as "Sweet Little Jazz", is a luscious blend of dance rhythms, Nu-Jazz arrangements, Portuguese traditional instruments, Afro-Brazilian percussions and R&B background vocals with soulful and organic Bossa melodies. Drawing on Jobim/Gil but giving it a twist of newness with effects and dub styles, the songs travel the Bebel Gilberto road but are a little edgier. Guida sings in Portuguese (her native language) and English: although either way, the lyrics seems secondary to the constant shake of the maracas. This special US edition of the album features 14 tracks including 4 exclusive bonus remixes, 'Sim Ou Não' (Sleepwalker Re-Work), 'Constelação' (Quant Remix), 'Astral' (Gerd's Straight Mix), & 'Yambou' (Phil Asher Remix).--album description
