CD Review: Rebeca Vallejo's 'Azucar, Canela'

Rebeca Vallejo
Azucar, Canela
WMB Productions

Spanish songstress, Rebeca Vallejo, brings us a mix of flamenco, romantic medleys, jazzy piano, and Brazilian musical flavors on her latest release, Azucar, Canela, which means, 'sugar, cinnamon.' The flavorful title sets the musical tone for a spicy and sweet collection of lounge jazz tunes and effervescent instrumental arrangements. The suavity of Rebeca's voice is heartfelt, joyous, and emotive. There are ten tracks with two bonus tracks. The piano, percussion, accordion, and vocals are the mainstay of the album. The flowing piano melodies are timeless and definitely a favorite on the album. The punchy sounds and beautiful vocals are top-notch and very likable. Taste it today! ~ Matthew Forss
