"Brasil Jazz" (1991) de la vocalista alemana Kevyn Lettau



Kevyn Lettau nació en Berlin (Alemania). Con sólo 14 años se traslada a San Diego (California) y al cumplir los 17 empieza a dar conciertos con el guitarrista Peter Sprague. El repertorio del grupo incluía jazz, R&B y música brasileña. Fue en esas fechas cuando el legendario pianista brasileño Sergio Mendes se fijó en ella y la incorporó a su banda con la que estuvo dando conciertos en todo el mundo durante 8 años. Durante esa etapa Lettau fue adquiriendo una gran experiencia y desarrollo su propio y personal estilo vocal.
Está preparación sirvió para afrontar sus primeros trabajos como líder que aparecieron en el mercado en el año 1991.

El disco del que os hablamos hoy, el interesante "Brasil Jazz", fue su trabajo de presentación ante el gran público. Grabado conjuntamente con dos músicos que la acompañaran hasta la actualidad, el guitarrista Peter Sprague y el percusionista Michael Shapiro, "Brasil Jazz" incorpora todos los ingredientes que tan sabiamente ha sabido combinar la vocalista alemana a lo largo de su ya dilatada carrera. Contrariamente al segundo album que aparecería ese mismo año ,"Kevyn Lettau" compuesto integramente por versiones de temas de otros músicos, "Brasil Jazz" consta de 10 composiciones, de las cuales 9 son temas originales de Lettau, Sprague y Shapiro.

Una bonita muestra de la voz de Lettau es esta versión del clásico I Fall In Love Too Easily.

Ambos trabajos obtuvieron una buena acogida de público y crítica, especialmente en Japón y Filipinas, donde Lettau mantiene aún hoy en día status de estrella. En el año 1992 Lettau firmó por JVC Japan con quiénes grabó cuatro discos: "Simple Life" (1992), "Another Season" (1994) (probablemente su mejor trabajo), "Universal Language" (1994) y "The Language of Flowers" (1998).


En el año 2000, Lettau firma con Universal y graba "Police" una particular visión de algunos de los temas más conocidos de la banda de rock inglesa liderada por Sting. Le siguen "The Color of Love" (2003) y "Bye, bye, Blackbird" (2005).

"Brasil Jazz" es un trabajo que contiene pinceladas de todos los palos musicales que interesan a la vocalista, desde la muy bossanovera "You Said" hasta la vibrante versión del clásico de Fats Waller, "Honeysuckle Rose".

Una estimable grabación que creemos vale la pena rescatar.

Esperamos que os guste.
