- After A remarkable duet with the great Eddie Gomez, Tania Maria offers a new album record-ed with several musicians in Brazil and in France. Tania Maria is at her best in a repertoire of new compositions supported once again by her grand piano and inimitable voice. A great lady of Brazilian Jazz!
After 36 years and 25 albums, and by way of such runaway hits as Piquant, Come with me and Made in New York, Tania Maria stands out as one of the truly great talents on the Brazilian music scene, where she is known for her unmistakable voice, whose sultry low tones can lay down a serious groove, and for her percussive touch at the piano, where things can suddenly take a more classical turn. She has also done a lot of travelling in her time, from the Paris nightlife of the 70s, where she met Claude Nougaro, to the New York fusion years in the 80s; she has lived in both cities, and both continue to live in her.
She has also taken part in virtually every major jazz festival in the world, from Montreux to New Orleans, Tokyo and Nice. Tania Maria is an accomplished musician who, though always attracted to swing and jazz, has never forgotten the fundamental beats of her native choro and samba.
