Flora Purim: If You Will

Read "If You Will" reviewed by Ian Patterson


Everyone loves a great comeback, and, after a lengthy hiatus, Flora Purim obliges with If You Will, the Brazilian's first studio album since Flora's Song (Narada, 2005). Released to coincide with her 80th birthday, If You Will is a somewhat nostalgic celebration that polishes a few old gems from a recording career that began--under military dictatorship--with the groundbreaking Brazilian jazz album é M.P.M. (1964, RCA). The production values are excellent, as are the performances from Purim and the trusted collaborators ...

Flora Purim: Sings Milton Nascimento

Read "Sings Milton Nascimento" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Nois Dois non rende merito alla classe della celebre vocalist brasiliana Flora Purim. Un’occasione perduta per divulgare al meglio lo straordinario repertorio di Milton Nascimento, che in Europa è conosciuto ed amato più dalla critica che dal pubblico. La produzione è caduta nella trappola di utilizzare modalità e sonorità neo-lounge di base, che snaturano l’intrinseca bellezza dei temi qui riproposti, che si fa fatica a riconoscere. Che peccato svilire un songbook bellissimo. Se non lo si conoscesse, sembrerebbe quasi inascoltabile! ...

Flora Purim: Butterfly Dreams

Read "Butterfly Dreams" reviewed by John Kelman


Flora Purim may be one of the most unfortunate stories in jazz of the past 35 years. First coming to light with Duke Pearson and Gil Evans, it was the one-two punch of pianist Chick Corea's Return to Forever (ECM, 1972) and Light as a Feather (Polydor, 1973) that introduced the Brazilian singer to a broader audience. The momentum from these two albums resulted in a series of fine solo records for Purim throughout the 1970s, but personal circumstances sidetracked ...

Flora Purim: Speak No Evil

Read "Speak No Evil" reviewed by Javier AQ Ortiz


Quick and to the Point: Unyielding Purim’s flowering...

Festive restfulness, mature wits, shrewd phrasing intonation and taste, with absolutely no vocal bells and whistles. It’s Mrs. Flora Purim, Brazil’s gracious-sounding elder stateswoman.

Speak No Evil is Purim’s latest. Her vocals, secure and succulent, convey enough exotica brushes in her accented musical fountainheads –and sonic conduits– to extend intimacy into the listening experience. She is the vocal jewel adorning a soloist and ensemble, manifested through her ...
