Last Tango In Rio by Gabriela Anders

Soft, smooth, dream-like Gabriela Anders delivers sweet renditions of Billie Holiday classics as well as Anders’ originals.

Subtle Latino, Brazilian tempo provided by Portinho on drums and percussion. Romero Lubambo plays guitar, while John Benitez holds a soft bass background.

Perky keyboard rhythms provided by G. Anders as she holds long notes on keyboard, keeping the melody smooth and thought reflecting like a romantic breeze.

Bandoneon is played by Tito Castro.

Gabriela’s musical background shows as she carries off, in subtle perfection, the sounds of Brazilian magic. Her mellow voice caresses the senses with a gentle touch of love inspired tunes.

Even the more up-tempo tunes have a delicious feel of sweet love as only the Latin beat can conjure up.

Gabriela gained great publicity from Vogue and People magazines for her ability to mix and present her South American, R&B and jazz tones to a huge audience a great start for a young lady who has done vocals for Grover Washington, Jr., Marc Anthony, Celia Cruz and Thalia.
