Passion of My Soul

Latin - Jazz

Following the trend for a less produced sound, “Passion of My Soul” is a natural expression of Bossa Nova. Like soft breezes on a quiet night, JA along with her musicians, envelop their listeners in the silky arms of their music-like a whisper. The timbre, blend and style that are her own, JA captures the spirit, yet gives a fresh face to Bossa Nova, and that's what Brazil is about...spice. “Passion of My Soul” is based on vocals, particularly the songs of Antonio Carlos Jobim, Joao Gilberto and other great writers. You will hear vocals in English, Portuguese and Italian. The harmony is expressed in the lushness of the guitar and the sensitive percussion. From song to song, it is a congruous, cumulative work of pure, subtle and textural changes setting a pastel mood. The musicianship is technical, yet there is strength to its simplicity and pureness. Her debut CD on BAP Records is a compilation of Brazilian and Jazz standards in which she sings in Portuguese, Italian and English. Ja was also named Favorite Michigan Jazz Artist 2003 by Michigan Radio Q90.7 FM.
