ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
After a 3 year successful battle with breast cancer I am back on the music scene with my second effort (also on CD) "Naturalmente Brasil." This LP not only reflects my identity as a singer but more importantly as a songwriter. There are 13 original tracks that showcase several Brazilian rhythms; including one written by baiano Lazzo Matumbi. If you enjoyed my first CD then get to know me a little better with "Naturalmente Brasil."

Aos 34 anos descubro minha indentidade, não só como cantora, mais também como compositora. Amo cantar e amo ainda mais criar! Imaginação pode ser tão "gostosa"!

Meu primeiro CD “É Minha Vez” obteve uma saída no extrangeiro legal. Já no Brasil, vendi um só, na minha terra natal e fui descobrir mais tarde que foi vovó que comprou. Este segundo LP que está saindo são 12 músicas originais, incluindo uma música ferissíma do Lazzo Matumbi. (O bahiano mais legal que eu conheço - deixa o Meia Noite saber disso!-).

Naturalmente Brasil nunca existiria se não fosse por ajuda de muitas pessoas contribuindo com suas lindas “artes” .
E a generosa Wilbur Music que acredita no meu trabalho. Á todos eles agradeço de coração !

Classy, stylish music with both spark and sensuality
Bossas, sambas and swing all arranged in exciting pop settings with a full band and Fabiana Passoni’s passionate vocals are a sure recipe for success. Her sophomore solo effort, “Naturalmente Brasil” is classy and stylish music for even the most discerning listener. It conveys both spark and sensuality. From a small town in Brazil, Passoni was singing professionally at rallies, clubs and parties by the time she was about ten years old. However, her musical vision was to establish a clear rapport with her audiences that would “make them feel better than when they came in; to leave with an impression in their soul.” So she started the pursuit of her dream by singing bossa nova jazz fusion in New York. After her 2007 highly-acclaimed album release of “É Minha Vez,” Passoni was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Now in 2011, “Naturalmente Brasil” has a strong and optimistic celebratory note that lifts the soul, cleanses the spirit, taps into emotions, and encourages people to live happily and fight for life. The song, “Natural,” for example, extols the great healing power of water. After her three-year battle with cancer, who says that music doesn’t have therapeutic and curing power also? The accordion-driven “Nao” establishes a spirited melodic groove. Any large body of original material also introduces various everyday characters such as “Esse Joao” (the poor flirt), “Maria das Fofocas” (the gossipmonger), and “Torradeiro” (a handsome, competent man with many skills including those of love). Her own self-penned “O Vida O Ceus” presents a novel fusion of Adam del Monte’s flamenco guitar with more electric rock influences.

Whether singing a breezy, jazz-influenced samba or exuberant, forro-influenced number, Passoni radiates strong, positive energy with her signature sound. Beyond just a combination of jazz and world stylings, her pop music has spirited vocals and contagious rhythms. Some of this success is no doubt due to the contributions of producer/composer Dirk Freymuth and composer/arranger Hector Contreras, as well as many consummate musicians. With a tip of the hat to her country’s traditional music, it’s also nice to hear slight flavorings of such instruments as Kleber Jorge’s cavaquinho (a small 4-string guitar) in the mix. She takes us on a musical rollercoaster, and there is plenty of sheer joy, emotion and variety enroute. (Joe Ross, Roots Music Report)
