CD Review: Carol Saboya, Antonio Adolfo, and Hendrik Meurkens' 'Copa Village'

Carol Saboya, Antonio Adolfo, and Hendrik Meurkens
Copa Village
AAM Music

With decades of Brazilian musical experiences between Carol, Antonio, and Hendrik, the group knows how to bring subtle, fresh, and original musical experiences to light with their latest release honoring classic bossa nova melodies and rhythms on Copa Village. Carol's vocals are joined by Antonio's piano skills and Hendrik's harmonica and vibraphone mastery. Of course, the bass, drums, percussion, and guitars round out the instrumental line-up. The entire album glistens with South American tones and jazzy melodies. The smooth rhythms are crystalline, infectious, and celebratory with nothing awry or amiss. There are a hint of 1950's/60's sounds; especially on "The Girl From Ipanema," "Copa Village," and "Show De Bola." The eleven track release is full of exciting grooves and compositions that are perfect for lounging, relaxing, and parties. The whole release is bubbly and addictive. Get addicted today! ~ Matthew Forss
