Sublime work from our favorite time in Tania
Maria's career – the time she spent in Paris, where she learned to weave her bossa jazz style with lightly breezy influences from European jazz! Fender Rhodes make up a bit part of the grooves here – as Tania
plays both electric and acoustic piano side by side, often overdubbed in a groovy way that dances along with the jazzy rhythms laid down by Helio on Fender bass and Boto on drums and percussion. But perhaps the best thing of all is Tania
's voice – deely soulful, yet always fluid and grooving – at a level that digs deeper than most other bossa singers of her generation, and which resonates beautifully with the deeper notes from her work on the keys! Titles include the funky "Transamazonica", plus "A Felicidade", "No Ano Que Vem", "Sem Compromisso", "Do A Flor", "Teimosa", "Biero Do Mar", and "Cancao Do Sal".
