Mili Bermejo, Love Songs of the Americas
Vocalist Mili Bermejo joins cellist Eugene Friesen, Tim Ray on piano, Dan Greenspan on bass, and the Berklee World String Orchestra for a fine program of Love Songs of the Americas (self-released). It consists of some well-chosen songs from Latin-America, Brazil, and a few in English.
The arrangements are good, the contributors essential, the strings tastefully positioned and Ms. Bermejo in fine voice. It's all about love, of course, in its various permutations, happy, sad, longing, beginning, ending, and everything in between.
It's a very good listen and a significant addition to Mili Bermejo's discography.
