Released:
Label: Sony Classical
Passos has earned comparisons to Astrud Gilberto, but on Amorosa she surpasses her, demonstrating the kind of jazz phrasing that is both girlish and knowing -- and also deftly original. There's not a song she doesn't make her own, whether it's the worn-out "Besame Mucho," the perennial favorite "Wave" or the world's first bossa nova single, "Chega De Saudade." This is music for grown-ups, and we mean that in the best way. (N.B.: Amorosa nods to Joao Gilberto's landmark 1977 Amoroso both in title and content, covering several songs from that album.)
