Description

On O Grande Amor, Brazilian singer Ithamara Koorax is joined by Swiss trumpeter Peter Schärli and his trio in what amounts to a quartet rather than the more standard vocalist plus accompanying trio. The result is a group sound in which each of the participants plays an equal part. Its an all Brazilian programme with compositions by some of that countrys most famous composers, including Antonio Carlos Jobim, Ivan Lins and Baden Powell. Ithamara Koorax is acknowledged as being among the best jazz singers in the world. With over one million CD sales to her credit since 2002 she regularly features among the top ranking vocalists in the yearly polls of the most important jazz publications, including Down Beat who awarded her 2002 release, Love Dance, Female Vocal Album of the Year. Her range and technique are remarkable but you dont necessarily take time out to marvel at her technique until later on because you are too absorbed in her musical message... Obviously, her singing speaks for itself with celestial eloquence." - Ira Gitler Personnel: Peter Schärli (trumpet), Ithamara Koorax (vocals), Hans-Peter Pfammatter (piano), Thomas Dürst (bass)
