ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Consuelo Luz has been called "a shining star in the firmament of Sephardic music". Her voice has been described as "...amber voiced...smoky, sultry closer to Sade, Anita Baker or her fellow Cuban, Celia Cruz..." Songs from her critically acclaimed Judeo/Spanish World Beat album "Dezeo" have gone all around the world on prestigious compilations like Buddha Bar 2, Putumayo's "Jewish Odyssey", Chill Out in Paris and Tulku. She has perfomed internationally and sings regularly at the Ha Makom Community gatherings in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where she lives.

After 9/11 Consuelo felt she needed to make a personal statement about the state of the world and express her loving vision for the planet and humanity. Co-producing with Grammy-nominated Tim Stroh and long time collaborator Kevin Zoernig at Tim's famed Stepbridge Studios in Santa Fe, Consuelo set out to record her own personal journey of transformation with songs she has been writing in English (with some Spanish) for many years. While singing at a community meeting she met acclaimed guitarist Larry Mitchell who stepped in to produce the powerful track "How Much Can Our Hearts Take" which features Consuelo's son, underground hip hop artist Max Paz, in a heart rending anti-war song which gets regular air play in New Mexico and recently has been getting lots of airplay on the BBC and which she continues to sing at peace rallies and concerts wherever she goes.

Joining her on this inspiring journey are some of Santa Fe's best musicians, including drummer Mark Clark, bassist Jeff Nelson, guitarist Larry Mitchell, keyboardist Kevin Zoernig, percussionist Chris Trujillo and Kenny Pasarelli (Elton John's bassist for many years) who came in to help during final vocals and mix and added some beautiful touches with additional keyboards and great mix ideas.

Tim had the core band record live on most of the songs and then additional instruments were overdubbed - cello, mandolin, violin, horns, Latin percussion. Consuelo's luscious "ecstatic singing" overdubs made their appearance in their own mysterious improvisational way and both her classical and Latin American folk roots came home to roost on this record. The final sound is live rock band meets South American angels at a love-in peace rally somewhere between the 60s and timelessness.

With fellow musician, Nelson Denman (who plays cello and mandolin on the album), Consuelo started a series of "Freedom Cafes" in Santa Fe for the purpose of raising awareness of important issues and including speakers, music, poetry and tables with info and sign-up sheets, petitions, etc, to get people aware and involved in saving our democracy and creating a peaceful and just world.

Consuelo continues to sing her beloved Sephardic music and, in fact, just came out with her new, long-awaited Sephardic album, "Adio", but she will also continue to sing her peace and transformation songs and encourage everyone she comes into contact with to become a conscious dreamer and assist in dreaming in a new wondrous,loving reality for our struggling planet.

missing water is on the mark
I was able to hear Consuelo's work on the Meria Heller Show. Her song "How Much can Our Hearts take is one of the greatest peace songs of any time. The message of Consuelo's work is timely and unique. That mixed with her soothing vibrato makes the album a fine addition to anybody's collection.

Graham Muddeman

Outstanding.
I heard the track "How Much Can Our Hearts Take" on the Johny Walker show on BBs Radio 2 and was knocked out by it. I bought the album straight away. The whole CD has varying styles but is without a doubt my album of the year. Well done Consuelo for giving me many hours of listening pleasure.

Talented musicians, Consuelo Luz singing with intense pasion, and a real "wrapup" of my life journey from El Paso's Fort Bliss, to battlefields of Europe in WWII to present day cultural injustices. -----Ken Lenke
