Elza Soares

Do Coccix Ate O Pescoco

Do Coccix Ate O Pescoco

In this Album Filled with Ultra Special Guests and Appearances, Elza Soares Returns to the Musical Scene Displaying all of her Radiance. "Do Cóccix Até O Pescoço" (From the Coccyx to the Neck) is a True Meeting of Brazilian Music’s Greatest Names: Caetano, Chico Buarque, Carlinhos Brown, Arnaldo Antunes, Jorge Benjor, Luiz Melodia, Marcos Suzano. The Album is a Not-to-be-missed Melting Pot of Styles and Influences. --album description

Vivo Feliz

Vivo Feliz

Elza is Elza. A powerful voice that is as Brazilian as the flag of her country, an energetic lady that is praised everywhere (she was elected best singer worldwide by the BBC). A character that is not afraid to take risks.
"Vivo Feliz" is a major risk. By teaming up with the young electronic collective of Reco-head and producer Arthur Joly, she has lent her voice and her persona to one of the most vibrant albums to come out of Brazil in years. It is intense, rhythmic, emotional and plunges deep in new musical experiments. No, ladies and gentlemen, this is not drum'n'bass meets bossa nova. This is the real deal. Pure, genuine creativity and real energy in the form of music.
Tracks "Rio de Janeiro" and "Computadores Fazem Arte" (a stunning cover of the track made famous by the late mangue singer Chico Science) are my favorites.

A Bossa Negra

A Bossa Negra

Awesome re-mastering of a 1961 classic. Fans of Samba, jazz, and anything latin will appreciate Elza Soares' energetic performances. Had she been in the USA she would have fit in nicely in the Rat Pack! However, as a black woman in the melting pot that is Brazil, her success opened doors much like Dorothy Dandridge in the USA. I would even compare her with the great Ella. Her interesting story includes being married to the soccer star Garrincha! This edition, with new liner notes written by Elza herself is well worth the investment. --Amazon reviewer
