Gabriela Anders first CD effort is a little precious gem of musical gentleness coupled with a sensuality that puts it apart from most first attempts by young artists. This is a showcase for the singer, and the musicians blend nicely and quietly into her sensual voice as she delivers well on such numbers as "Fire of Love," "I'll Be Loving You," "The Girl From Ipanema," "Just An Hour," to name a few! Another Brazilian singer with the ease and touch of sensitivity that is evident in all that she sings. A fine first CD.
