To lovers of Brazilian jazz, the pairing of these two legends of the genre amounts to something of a musical orgasm. The only serious misfire isn't really that bad, just a bit incongruous. Why would two consummate Brazilian ambassadors choose to do their one English lyric song – George Harrison's "Something" – as a reggae tune? The groove is silly, but actually some of the guitar work is fun. Just as when Ivan Lins sings in his native Portuguese rather than stilted English, this tandem is most at home conveying emotions that go beyond simple semantics, usually with Gil writing the music and Nascimento the lyrics. "Sebastian" is a moody bass-and-drum driven power ballad which functions as a showcase to their raspy vocals. The romantic, accordion-enhanced "Duas Sanfonas" would be more effective without the guest vocals by Sandy and Junior.

Style: Jazz | Label: Heartcore Records

Jason Ringenberg was born and raised on an Illinois hog farm that bordered the Rock Island Line Railroad. When he left for Nashville on 4th July 4, 1981, to pursue his dream of “making a band that could kick American roots music into the modern age!” little did he know just how far that kick would go. He immediately formed Jason & The Scorchers and never looked back. Throughout the '80s and '90s they tore up venues across the planet and became known as one of the most exciting live bands of their era. On classic LPs like Fervor and Lost and Found they “singlehandedly rewrote the history of rock ‘n roll in the South” (Rolling Stone.) Their instinctive ability to combine traditional country music with high-energy punk rock has not been surpassed to this day. In 2008 they were awarded the Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award for Performance.

Latin jazz | Country: Angola | Label: Jazzhaus Records

If you take a closer look at the Portuguese music scene of 2018, it is precisely artists from the former African colonies who have been enormously enriching the country's musical and poetic spectrum for some years now. Angolan Aline Frazão is one of them. Mythical images of the rain, sometimes dance-like, sometimes ballad-like memories of Angola's landscapes, a chanson that mutates into a bossa, a transatlantic cello and images of nature made with Cape Verdean strings: these are just some of the ingredients for her forth work Dentro Da Chuva, on which the singer / Songwriter draws wonderfully dazzling soundtracks on the Atlantic Ocean. Dentro Da Chuva combines myths and metaphors from the sea, strong images of nature between water and sky, with the modern lifestyle of a young Afro-Portuguese woman - implemented with frugal instruments, but with the wide horizon of poetic visions.

Mayra’s singing is a blend of radiant, dancing colors, velvet beats and spicy melodies. The songs conjure up an eternal summer that disperses the mists and chills, but never resort to the tinsel of exoticism. Sung in Cape Verdean creole, English and Portuguese, they carry us away in their warm, adventurous unpredictability.

Passion World is the fifth Concord album (and eleventh overall) from vocalist Kurt Elling, living up to its title on both counts. It is indeed his most "worldly" album to date, as Elling casts his net far and wide, from Brazil to Ireland, Germany to France, Scotland to Cuba to Iceland. Guests include the brilliant veteran trumpeter Cuban émigré Arturo Sandoval; the widely lauded young vocalist Sara Gazarek; German trumpet star Till Brönner; French accordion virtuoso Richard Galliano; the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra and the world-renowned WDR Big Band and Orchestra from Germany.

Vocal Jazz, Crossover Jazz | Label: White Moon | # none | Time: 01:04:44

On After Dark, Halie's warm and sultry voice unites with a lighter, upbeat sound that incorporates a variety of Latin beats on such standards as Jobim's Waters of March and classics from other genres, such as jazzy versions of Joni Mitchell's Carey and Stevie Wonder's Happier Than the Morning Sun. Loren's originals are the gems of the album highlighting her songwriting talent and ability to merge pop sensibility with jazz intuition, while showcasing her diverse vocal renderings. Her ability to uniquely interpret jazz standards in Portuguese and French help to make this one of the most challenging and refreshing albums Loren has recorded to date. Halie Loren's definition of jazz is wide and deep and she has the impressive vocal abilities to carry the listener across genres and eras with seamless, beautiful ease.

Celebrating the release of Turning Pages. More than a long-awaited new album, Claudia Acuña´s Turning Pages is an exquisite reintroduction to a singer who has thrived at the cusp of jazz and Latin American music. Slated for release on February 1, 2019, the project captures an artist in the process of reinventing herself, with a program of strikingly melodic original songs expressing her singular vision. Featuring a stellar cast of collaborators, Acuña’s first new recording in a decade makes a compelling case that while keeping a lower profile shes been pluming new emotional depths.

Granted, the four separate versions of Viva! La Woman's sublime "Sugar Water" are unnecessary, but the rest of the material on Cibo Matto's follow-up EP Super Relax is superb. No longer relying solely on Yuka Honda's slice-and-dice samples, the duo's sound is considerably more organic this time out; "Spoon" locks into an infectious groove worthy of Luscious Jackson, while the live "BBQ" is breathlessly manic. The highlights, however, are the two covers: the first, a rendition of Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Aguas de Marco" (also found on the benefit LP Red Hot and Latin) opens up a vast new global playground of exotic textures and rhythms for the group to romp around in, while their exemplary take on the Stones' "Sing This All Together" proves Honda and vocalist Miho Hatori are equally capable of tackling straightforward rock and roll.

Brazilian Jazz, Vocal Jazz, Bossa Nova | Label: Chesky | # JD276 | Time: 00:42:25

A superior Brazilian jazz singer, Ana Caram takes a slight detour on this CD, stretching her repertoire while mostly still performing in a style influenced by bossa nova. One does not get to hear such songs as "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You," "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head," "Smile," and "As Time Goes By" in a bossa nova setting that often. Also unusual is that Michel Freidenson plays all of the instruments other than the reeds (which are performed by Lawrence Feldman), and most of his electronic instruments sound real enough not to be an issue. The focus throughout is on Caram's lovely voice and she excels on this material, showing that it really is not what you sing but how you sing it. Recommended.

Love Bossa moves from the samba rhythms of “So Danco Samba” to the wistful arrangement of “Garota de Ipanema" sung in Brazilian Portuguese…passionate, sexy and upbeat Bossa.
