Wonderful work from singer Tania Maria – an extended selection of some of her best cuts recorded for Concord
Records! Maria first got her start in Brazil, then recorded in France, but eventually found a very welcome home in the California climate of Concord
Records – the Bay Area label who had a very open ear for Tania's blend of bossa and jazz, and her very unique approach to singing! Most numbers here feature warm instrumentation, tightly grooving rhythms, and Maria's great mixture of scat vocals and straight lyrics – a mode she virtually invented back in the 70s, and which so many other artists have copied in later years. CD features 12 tracks in all – including "Eruption", "Bela Be Bela", "Euzinha", "I Can Do It", "Chiclete Com Banana", "Funky Tamborim", "Come With Me", "Comecar De Novo", and "Sangria".
