Album Notes
Hiromi Suda 2nd album "Sou"
Produced by Hiromi Suda and Brazilian jazz guitarist Romero Lubambo, the recording is a collection of Brazilian songs by notable Brazilian composers, such as João Bosco, Milton Nascimento, Hermeto Pascoal, Pixinguinha, Antonio Carlos Jobim and Djavan, and three original compositions by Hiromi Suda. Lubambo is featured on Sou (guitar and cavaquinho), along with pianist Julian Shore, flutist Anne Drummond, bassist Yasushi Nakamura and drummer/percussionist Keita Ogawa.
The album title "sou" has two meanings in Japanese and Portuguese. "Sou" is the title of her original song which is written in Japanese. "Sou"(想) means "to think about someone or something" in Japanese. In Portuguese, "sou" means "I am".

Vocalist/Composer Hiromi Suda is originally from Japan.
A Berklee School of Music alumni, Hiromi Suda developed a keen interest in Brazilian music while studying there. During the summer of 2007, she spent 3 months in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, honing her skills in Brazilian music styles and instruments. Her experience in Brazil was highly rewarding, not only musically, but it gave a historical and cultural context to her passion for the music. Suda attended a choro school, Escola Portatil de Musica, studying the pandeiro (hand frame drum) with pandeiro players Jorginho Silva and Celsinho Silva, and MPB vocal style with singer-songwriter Suely Mesquita. Hiromi Suda combines the classical qualities of intricate phrasing and attention to emphasis and timing, with a melodic and harmonic complexity that reminds of bossa nova. Suda lives and works in New York City.

やわらかさと強さを兼ね備えたしなやかな歌声のNY在住、ヴォーカリスト/コンポーザーHiromi Suda(須田宏美)の2ndアルバム。時に力強く、時に心にそっと添うように サンバ、ボサノバ、オリジナル曲などを独自の感性で丁寧に歌い上げた上質なサウンドに仕上がっている。 オリジナル曲とブラジリアンの名曲をプロデユーサー/ギターリストにアストラッド・ジルベルトをはじめとしたブラジリアンアーティストから、NYシーンのジャズスターたちとの多彩な共演をしているブラジリアンギタリスト、Romero Lubamboをむかえ、NYの実力派ミュージシャンとAvatar Studio NYでレコーディング。 アルバムタイトル"Sou"は、オリジナル曲"Sou"(想)とポルトガル語で"I am"の意味のダブルミーニング。
