Album Notes
With exquisite arrangements and slick production, Michaele's "Incantation" is a sensual mix of Brazilian, R&B and electro-dance trends, seamlessly blending programmed tracks and live musicians. Included in “Incantation” are beautifully crafted original songs as well as some distinctive twists on familiar covers such as “Walk On By” and “I Hear A Symphony.” “Autumn,” an original by Michaele & co-writer, Hoshea Estrada, is an intimate journey through a fluid, textural soundscape. Soulful, smooth and elegant, Michaele's “Incantation” is a spellbinding foray into melodic jazz with a pop veneer. The mix of Brazilian-influenced music with folky overtones and intimate sultry vocals creates an intoxicating combination of textures. With lushly layered background vocals, lyrical story-lines, and most notably Michaele’s uniquely intimate voice and writing style, “Incantation” truly does succeed in casting a spell on its listeners.

REVIEW OF "INCANTATION" by Lynette Elizalde-Robinson / LMR Hot Music Reviews

May 6, 2007

Exquisite, enchanting, engaging, enveloping and engineered with sheer magic...that's what I feel about the electroacoustic, nu jazz flava of Michaele. Her voice is bewitchingly seductive and the music is timelessly haunting. Her CD "Incantation" is rightfully titled, because the spell of her sound is unforgettable and beseechingly hypnotic. Let me further expound on the talent's of Michaele's sensual style and the musical arrangements of her songs that promenade her talents and elevate her song savvy to celestial endearment: THIS woman has an angel's voice. If legendary Marion Meadows can be found blowing his delicious homage to her vocal acuity, then shame on you if you don't spend some quality time checking out her lushly lyrical gardens. Her enraptured "Slow Dance" with Meadows spellbinding sax lures every curious listener into her musical courtyard while subtle encouragement from each polished track on the CD relaxes your mood and lowers you into the warm fountain of her soul. On her MySpace page there is a treasure chest of songs to rummage through, earmarking each song as a priceless jewel but, "Here I Go" espousing the perfection of a perfect vocalist. This "lady In Waiting" asks that you not "Walk On By" but rather spend some time wandering through her seraphic selections of effulgent melody. "If You Ever" want to hear a real angel sing, then let me recommend Michaele, but don't wait til "Autumn" to visit Heaven, because the everlasting essence of her gardens are waiting for your attention and applause right now!

Michaele's Incantation is perfect in every way....sexy, romantic, seductive, smooth music. Every song is a gem, from start to finish. The original songs as well as the covers are gorgeous; there's not a single throwaway track on the entire disc. Michaele's version of "Hello" is breathtakingly beautiful, heartfelt, exquisite. The vocals, the lyrics, the arrangements are all equally captivating. Incantation is a CD to get lost in...an absolute "must-have."

Tommy Nolan

Indescribably Beautiful
To put it quite simply, Michaele has the most beautifully seductive voice that is very difficult to not fall head over heals for. She sings with a heartfelt emotion that seems to be speaking to you personally and makes you feel as though there is no other place you would want to be. "Incantation" is a must have for anyone that truly desires to have a deeply moving personal experience simply from listening to an adorable woman sing with such indescribable beauty. Listen with caution, you may just fall in love...

Margaret Andersen

Michaele's smooth and sexy voice is as beautiful as the summer wind. Her passion comes through in every song, and you can "feel" her heart beat as she sings with emotions that grip your heart strings and mellows you out. This beautiful woman is the epitome of sexy nu-jazz music.

I'm in Love
Love, love, love this album! Smooth doesn't even begin to describe it...a real treasure from start to finish...

Michaele - Incantation
Have you ever HEARD of elegance? No? Well, you will hear elegance when Michaele sings. The 14 songs of her new album "Incantation" (title is program) don't lack in either elegance or class - most important for this variety of nujazz.
Responsibly for the happy combination of cool electric rhythms, hot natural instrumental solo parts (listen up for saxophonist extraordinaire Marion Meadows) and a leading voice is Singer Michaele who creates little pieces of art out of every tune. Just listen to "Here I Go" which fits lead vocals perfectly to decent music backing. And listen to Michaele's greatest performance on the outstanding "Autumn". You may hear the leaves fall and you forget any depresson...
And there are some covers of famous songs, i.e. "I Hear A Symphony" that probably lets Diana Ross blush and the all-timer "Cry Me A River" that surely will force Joe Cocker (= MadDogs & Englishmen) to order another beer.
Anyhow, the highlights of the marvellous album "Incantation" are marked by Michaele's original material. She takes the melodies and puts them in total control, she paraphrases them in her very own way. This collection is a real pearl in the flood of the current nujazz production, a pefect dinner for starving ears, mind and soul. Go and get this wonderful incantation!
