Roberto Perera merges the Paraguayan harp with a contemporary jazz lineup in the 12-track album "Sensual."
Exotic and romantic are two adjectives that can be used to describe the mood of the album. Produced by keyboardist/arranger Michael Levine, Perera blends a array of jazz, pop, Latin and Afro-Caribbean rhythms into his selections.
He pays homage to Brazilian composer Antonio Carlos Jobim in "Remembering Antonio" and crosses the hemisphere with selections such as "Cruising Leblon," an exotic Brazilian/Paraguayan mixture.
Luis Enrique's vocals set a poignant tone in "Gracias A La Vida," (Here's to Life) sealing the success of this album.
