Album Review
Reviewed 2009-09-01
Celebrating 40 years in music this Spanish singer has a rich, fluid, sensual voice and sophisticated style. She sings in a pan-Mediterranean style showing influences of Spain, its Moorish past, and more. The band is wonderful with delicious arrangements & performances. Recorded live so watch for applause. It’s all wonderful but check out:

1. Slow & haunting a capella Just georgeous.
2. Relaxed and dramatic w/lots of passion.
3. Slow and passionate w/lovely work from the band.
5. Slow and stirring, a hint of Fado.
7. Trilling strings, downtempo and tragic.
9. Starts quiet, gets into a cool midtempo sound w/great backup.
12. Lush strings, soaring vocals, drama and passion.
13. Dramatic and mysterious w/wonderful arrangement.
14. Solo strings, Nuevo Flamenco. Driving and very cool.
18. Crowd claps along, upbeat strings. Ends at 2:12 applause then
