Ivan Lins: Meus Momentos The distinct characteristics of Brazil’s top MPB star Ivan Lins’ music emanates with sophistication and true romanticism on Meus Momentos, a pure, Brazilian, contemporary jazz trophy. A master of harmonic progression and the syncretism of the different regions that make up Latin America, the award-winning singer, keyboardist and composer exceeds expectations with his reflective vocals, the use of varied accompaniment textures and harmonic motion to resolve dissonant chords often heard in works with jazz piano. The romantic classics, (sung in Portuguese), stem from a diverse background of styles including contemporary Brazilian samba to romantic pop, and unlike many of his contemporaries, Lins’ songs rarely include the overtones of Latin politics. Ivan Lins is one of Brazil’s brightest composers and is justly receiving the international respect he deserves. Recorded by Quincy Jones, Lee Ritenour, Dave Grusin, Patti Austin, and George Benson, fans following the blazing Latin jazz scene or just being introduced to it should benefit by adding Meus Momentos to their collections. The tracks are sonnets sung in Portuguese but compassionate enough for anyone that enjoys music in any language.

Title: Meus Momentos | Year Released: 1999 | Record Label: EMI Music
