REVIEW: Maucha Adnet & Helio Alves’ “Milagre”

Maucha Adnet & Helio Alves photo Maucha_cover_zps350b1ba0.jpg Brazilian vocalist Maucha Adnet has teamed up with Helio Alves for their first album on Zoho called Milagre. If you have been a fan of Brazilian jazz since the 1960’s or are a new fan from its exposure in the last few days, you will love this union, as it’s just Adnet singing with piano accompaniment. As the liner notes from Todd Barkan indicates, Adnet and Alves “explore 14 classic anthems pf love, loss, longing, and life’s celebration” by some of Brazil’s more well known composers, so you will hear such compositions as “Caminhos Cruzados”, “Tico-Tico No Fuba”, “Retrato Em Branco E Preto”, and “Eu Vim Da Bahia” performed.

Overall, a very nice album.
