ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The album "Dreams" is the most personal statement of Carmen Cuesta - Loeb so far. On one hand she has interpreted such standards as the Jobim hymn "Corcovado, the Rodgers/Hart classic "My Romance" or George Harrison's "Something" in a way all her own. On the other she also placed a great deal of weight on a blend of songs sung in English and Spanish. As diverse as they are, they are intended to reflect how cosmopolitan her life is, but at the same time become what she modestly calls an "exciting American-Spanish love affair".

The songs are enhanced by solos from Germany's No.1 jazz musician Till Brönner (flugelhorn), US keyboard authority Bob James (Fourplay), Andy Snitzer and jazz legend Michael Brecker. Hubby Chuck Loeb, meanwhile advanced to a paramount No. 1 Jazz Radio Artist in the US of A, contributes the finest of solo parts and all the know-how it takes after years as a producer

VIRGOLINO R LUIS

AWESOME !
This one is the best of the four Carmen Cuesta-Loeb releases, in my opinion. Somewhere between jazz, pop, bossa nova, latin and world music, the CD is very ecletic, containing five well chosen superb standards. The other songs have been penned by Carmen herself, with great inspiration. Her beautiful silky sensual voice manages to pass on tranquility and peace. That's what I feel. She counts with the handy help of her husband, the guitar virtuoso Chuck Loeb with awesome guitar work and extra arrangements and production. Guest appearances of top class musicians such the great sax wizard Michael Brecker (who sadly passed away recently), Bob James, John Patitucci, Till Brönner, Will Lee and others add an extra spice. This is a awesome CD, a must have for good taste music lovers. Buy it and you won't regret it.
