Description

Brazilian vocalist Viviane De Farias, alongside German musicians, guitarist Paulo Morello and saxophonist Kim Barth. Ten years after their acclaimed 'Moments of Passion' album they have converged again to record their second transatlantic summit paying tribute to Rio and its way of life. The composition "Ginga Carioca" by the larger-than-life Hermeto Pascoal is a good example of the music on the album. Viviane De Farias perceives the sirens of police cars, the gunfire of the favelas, the bustling of a mad city but also the pride to live in one of the most beautiful spots on earth. This is why she had to write lyrics to this instrumental work. "I have lived" - this is exactly what "Vivi", the short version of her name means. All the facets and stages she has gone through can be found on this, her third album for In & Out, packed into a brilliant cycle of songs. All her memories, longings, dreams, her musical visions between Rio de Janeiro and the rest of the globe. With her outstanding quintet she creates a tension between introspection and movement, exuberance and sadness, the past and today's life. She can still rely on her classical formation as an opera singer which she gave up because she wanted to enjoy a more intimate contact with her audience. She equally feels at home in the rapid scats of bebop which receive colors far from US jazz vocabulary through their Portuguese wording. And there is always the beauty of direct phrasing, a chant that is very close to the melody of speaking - a sublime virtue in Brazilian vocal art.
