Album Description

Anna Maria Jopek & Gonzalo Rubalcaba "Minione". After her musical journeys deep into the Japanese ('Haiku') and Lusitanian ('Sobremesa') sounds, this time AMJ sings in Polish with the Cubans. The album 'Minione', which was launched on St Valentine's Day, brings back to life the most charming pre-war Polish tangos. AMJ sings with one of the greatest improvising pianist of our times, fantastic Gonzalo Rubalcaba and his jazz trio. Among hundreds of old tangos and boleros, both leading musicians chose the songs that inspired them most, such as: ['Rebeca'] or ['Your lips lie']. Those pieces are a bridge between the past, the world of the thirties of the past century and present vocal music. They also merge various cultures: Polish, Cuban, Jewish, Argentinian and American. 'When I work with artists who come from musical backgrounds different to mine, I'm always delighted by their diversity. Everything that they bring in to the recording enriches me spiritually. I'm amazed of the immensity of beauty and truth on the crossroads of cultures and human sensibility. Music is the language of unity" - says AMJ. "Working on those old tangos was pure magic. Rarely can you come across the material of such charm, intense melancholy, mystery and eroticism. Recording with Gonzalo was sheer mysticism. The presence of 'being' in every note teaches you to be carefully attentive and humble.' 'Minione' is arranged and produced by Gonzalo Rubalcaba. The highest audiophile sound quality of the recording is the merit of the Grammy Awards winner Carlos Alvarez, made in The Hit Factory Criteria Miam, legendary studio in Florida.
