"I have been performing on the stage since I
was 8 years old. But my most recent experience
as part of the hit musical Loving the Silent Tears has given me a new perspective about stage presence."
Los Angeles (June 5th, 2014) – Internationally renowned Brazilian star Fabiana Passoni newest EP Let Your Love Rise showcases her first Brazilian jazz original in English and remakes of two (2) Billboard Hot 100 1960s/70s hits. With uplifting lyrics and Fabiana’s deep, lush delivery the track provides a final punch of energy as the band cuts loose on an extended jam of pure, unadulterated Brazilian Jazz.
The EP also features a bossa nova version of the 60′s smash hit I Feel Good (James Brown). The acoustic arrangement is supported by undertones of Fender Rhodes, cello, and an impressive range of percussion. An added bonus to the EP is Fabiana’s modern interpretation of the 70′s hit Jazzman (Carole King) featuring a musical duet of her rich voice and the soprano sax of Scott Mayo.
Reviews are pouring in from around the world. Check out the album page for sound clips and reviews.
Full 320 kbt/s downloads available at iTunes and at a special EP price at CDBaby.com (3 days only).
Yesterday’s release of the “Let Your Love Rise” (radio edit) and video was a huge success. There was an unbelievable amount of interest shown on Facebook, YouTube, and my website. I want to thank everyone for your continued support of my music and me.
But …. if you liked yesterday’s version of “Let Your Love Rise” then ‘you ain’t seen nothing yet!’ Stay tuned for June 5th when we release the full EP. The full EP version of “Let Your Love Rise” finishes with an extended jam as my band cuts loose for a minute and a half of pure, unadulterated Brazilian Jazz! Don’t miss it!
Also on the EP is my bossa version of the 60′s smash hit “I Feel Good” (James Brown). This is a very cool arrangement with Kleber Jorge and Marcel Camargo on acoustic guitar, Jamieson Trotter on the Fender Rhodes, Scott Mayo with some alto flute, Artyom Manukyan on cello (yes, cello!), and Gibi and Brad Dutz on percussion.
Finishing off the EP is my interpretation of the 70′s hit “Jazzman” (Carole King). This is an updated jazz version of the orignal and features a musical duet of my vocal with the soprano sax of Scott Mayo.
