DESLIZE is the first single (Portuguese version) of the album to be released in mid-July 2012, produced by Robert Landry (assisted by bassist/arranger Andrew Bruhacs), for CoolJazzCreatives (label). A French version (TOUT INCLUS) of the single is also released.
O romance esta no ar... Deslize fala de um amor contido que esta prestes a se converter num beijo roubado("em tua boca eu divido o que nao tenho/pois em teus dentes meu destino se decide"). Os apaixonados timidos vao se identificar com essa linda balada..
The song balances colors of jazz to south american rythms and is a real breeze for Summer time, anywhere on the globe.
Recorded in Montréal at Cooljazzfactory Studio and Media Musique, mixed at Media Musique.
Mixing engineer: Eric Deguire / Mastered by CJ Jacobson at Premier Mastering, Miami, Florida
JULIA PESSOA started singing and acting at the age of 13 in her hometown, Recife. At the age of sixteen, she lived in Rochester, New York, then moved back to Brazil a year later in order to study arts at the Federal University of Pernambuco. Meanwhile, she became the lead singer in a few anglophone pop rock bands, but she wanted something else. She decided to begin researching Brazilian ethnic music and discovered that there’s much more than bossa nova and samba in Brazil…..At the great MPB Unicap, Julia has taken part at the Paulinho da Viola research group and Tribute, where she’s studied chorinho, one of the roots of samba and world known Bossa Nova, the “Brazilian jazz”…..Performing with the group Ouça, they have both written originals such as “Raízes de sonhos” and performed bossa nova classics with a brand new feeling…..Acting has remained one of her passions, and she’s performed in a few plays directed by Sandro Guerra, such as Brecht’s Mutter and Sartre’s Huis Clos, where she was also responsible for the musical direction…..Julia Pessoa was also one of the lead singers of the band Maria Fulô, composed by nine women headed by the talented producer and accordion player Valkyria Nunes. In this band, Julia was able to learn a little bit more about the roots of the northeast music and its rhythms: baião, xaxado, forró, maracatu, côco, etc.
