CD Review: Sweet Sounds of 'Nectar'

Natalia Clavier

Argentina's Natalia Clavier, grants us with a wonderful set of modern compositions. Her vocals carry every song in a heart-felt way; much like a butterfly flitting from flower to flower collecting 'nectar' for nourishment. In a way, listeners of Natalia will feel musically 'nourished' soon after hearing her pleasant vocals. The songs are catchy and feature a modern jazzy lounge beat. Instruments include piano, keyboard, guitar, bass, cello, violin, charango, organ, computer programming, congas, and cabaquinho. Lyrics are included in Argentinian Spanish. Track highlights include: "El Arbol", "Dormida", "Azul", "No Volvera", "La Mitad", "Simple", "Nectar", and "Tiempo". Nectar is excellent served with iced tea or your favorite mixed drink! This is easily one of the best releases of the year from South America. ~ Matthew Forss
