From the impoverished island nation of Cape Verde comes this wonderful, gifted, and soulful singer. She died in 2011 but never achieved the recognition she deserved. If you have the time, listen (also) to the next two tunes on the album.

Wow! A voice right up there with the best of them, and the feeling to boot. There are so many factors, including looks, money, social status, and dumb luck in getting to the top. or even recognized.

You're so right, Bernie. Too bad we can't just judge people on their 'gift' alone.

WOW! Incredible voice, super soft and smooth rendition of a song I know well and performed hundreds of times over the years. She put so much feeling into the song that it overshadowed the excellent band behind her. The horn player, however, did a fantastic job with this song as well. I love watching talented performers.

Thanks for posting, Chas,

It may sound patronizing but I was thinking the same thing, Gary. I just loved that accompaniment and especially that beautiful horn solo. It just seemed like everything complimented each other. So much beautiful music just gets lost in the ether.
