Gabriela Anders‘ new solo project, “Cool Again”, beautifully displays the significant gifts as singer, vocal orchestrator, songwriter and bandleader she has steadily developed through her previous releases: “Wanting”, “Eclectica”, “Latina”, “Last Tango in Rio” and “Bossa Beleza”.
The mix of original and cover songs on “Cool Again” finds Gabriela at her best. The soulful funk of the original title track is a classic example. Its message of empowerment can be considered a core theme in Gabriela’s lyrics and a source of her resonating appeal as a performer, entertainer and artist.
Her love and familiarity with Brazil’s music, her appreciation for the American songbook, her skill as a singer/songwriter and her moving, intimate way with a ballad are all wonderfully present in “Corcovado”, “You Were Meant for Me”, “Pearls and Gold”, “Crave” and the Italian classic, “Sto Male”.
Gabriela assembled a fantastic band for this recording: Wayne Krantz, Anthony Jackson, Cliff Almond, Jim Ridl, Rogerio Bocatto, John Benitez and Horacio “El Negro” Hernandez. As most of the tracks were cut live in the studio, Gabriela’s singular and remarkably interactive musical nature is strikingly evident here.
“Cool Again” is a gift from one of the most accomplished and appealing contemporary vocalists creating today.
Gabriela Anders Came to New York City from Buenos Aires, Argentina, when she was 19. She immediately began doing session work as a singer and went on to become a first call singer in New York, Miami and Los Angeles for many record dates, commercials and films. Her debut album on Warner Jazz, “Wanting”, comprised of all original material, earned great success and critical praise. Her legendary performance with George Duke at the Montreux Jazz Festival brought international attention and was been followed by concert performances in Europe and Asia.
Gabriela has two current tracks in release: “Bossa Disney Best”, Disney Records/Japan, and “All Of Us”, Talib Kweli, Blacksmith/Warner Brothers.
