While facing the fear and uncertainty of the virus in New York City, Gabriela recorded a piano/voices collection of songs at her home studio, creating intimate portraits of inner struggle and redemption against the bizarre backdrop of the pandemic.
The project’s three pianists – Jim Ridl, Jean-Michel Pilc and Jon Cowherd – are radically different stylists from different corners of the world, here each offering their unique sensibilities to Gabriela’s voice and music.
The resulting contrasts, unified by some of the most moving and imaginative vocal performances and orchestrations of Gabriela’s career, elevate the record far beyond the predictability of the commonplace duo aesthetic.
“The Ring” is a fun, beautiful, surprising musical touchstone for our time.
