Album Notes
Carmen Cuesta - Loeb set the pace for her album "Peace Of Mind" by working together with such top studio musicians as Chuck Loeb, Will Lee, Wolfgang Haffner and Bob James. Icing on the cake for her brand of "sophisticated pop" are the solos delivered by such jazz stars as Toots Thielemans, Bill Evans and Till Brönner.

Alongside a number of her own compositions in a relaxed, atmospheric vein, jewels like the heart-rendering title song "Peace Of Mind", the catchy "Paralelo" or the romantic ballad "Bells", there are two cover versions in particular that stand out on the list of tracks. With an arrangement strongly influenced by Sting, the master of intelligent pop music, Carmen Cuesta puts an exciting twist into her interpretation of his tune "Shape Of My Heart". The Beatles are also accorded due reverence in her version of "Here Comes The Sun".

Press Quotes:

Jazz Dimensions:
"Easy ... but sophisticated. A brilliant mixture of Pop and Jazz."

"Songs that are absolutely addictive."

"Between Latin beats, grooving Fusion-Jazz and sophisticated Pop songs, this American vocalist is well-versed in using her markedly sensual timbre to set the scene for her music."

Ya - Com Spain:
"Peace Of Mind" es un album mucho ... , mejor producido, variado en cuanto a la tematica ... , brillante en su resultado final.

In Music:
"Aspiring Pop songs that breathe just the right dose of Jazz feeling."

Gregory E. Dziomba

A truly gifted singer with tremendous musicians backing a variety of moving, soulful latin sounds. Sit back, close your and eyes and peacefully drift away...

Ferdie Lu

good stuff!!
addictive sound esp track 10 and track 2 and 3


This is my favourite kind of music. Somewhere between jazz, pop, bossa nova, latin music, world music. Very ecletic. Carmen (born in Spain) has a very beautiful silky sensual voice. Most of the song are penned by herself with the help of her husband, the great guitar player Chuck Loeb, who lends his awesome guitar work to this CD. Guest appearances of top class musicians such as Toots Thielemans, Bob James, Bill Evans (sax), Lou Marini, Dave Mann, Till Brönner, Will Lee, Vinnie Colaiuta and others add an extra spice. This is a must have for good taste music lovers. Buy it and you won't regret it.
