Lovers of jazz samba will get 32 minutes of good music on Anna Borges & Bill Ward's Receita de Samba (self released).
Anna has a nicely tuned and rhythmically hip vocal style, within classic parameters but with her own kind of warmth. Bill Ward plays quite nicely on the nylon stringed guitar, samba-bossa style, and he can sing too.
They get a small, good rhythm section together for the album and give a light but heated reading of some wonderful samba tunes.
Oh yeah, this is nice. Very, very nice!
