Tania Maria: Tania Maria Live At the Blue Note If Tania Maria Live At The Blue Note is the first Tania Maria album you hear I quarantee that less than eight bars into it you'll be wondering what took you so long. You will also discover that Tania Maria is a unique, wonderfully alive, mega talent who cannot really be put in any single jazz pidgeon hole. This native of Brazil treats her listeners to Brazilian Samba and bossa nova, but it doesn't end there. Tania Maria blends funk, pop, and jazz.

Tania Maria's vocals are a combination of rich earthy tones, depth and feeling and technical excellence. Decades of performing have honed her talent to a fine edge. She reaches out and draws her audience into the magic. And Tania Maria plays piano with excitement and imagination. In short, she is the complete package.

And lets not forget the other members of the Viva Brazil Quartet. Luiz Cavani on drums, Carlos Warneck and Mestre Carneiro add color and texture to the music. Their playing reflects their understanding and respect for the music.

Let me sum it up by saying that if this is your first Tania Maria CD, it positively won't be your last.
