New Radicals You Get What You Give.

The New Bossa Nova is not, however, all about darkness and despair. A duet with guest James Taylor on his poignant "Never Die Young reveals just how lush Souza's voice is contrasted with Taylor's sharp tenor, while she reworks Antonio Carlos Jobim's classic "Waters of March into an uplifting set closer. Like Swiss singer Susanne Abbuehl, Souza's range and emotional resonance are made all the more powerful for her avoidance of overstatement.

For her sixth recording and first on a major label (Verve), Luciana Souza's concept of "new bossa nova" is melding Brazilian rhythms onto adult contemporary folk-pop MOR songs. She sings lyrics exclusively in English. The stamp of Joni Mitchell, aided and abetted by producer Larry Klein, makes this image unmistakable immediately from the first tune, Joni's "Down to Yo. Souza sounds exactly like Mitchell in her melancholic phrasing during "Were You Blind That Day" and "You and the Girl.
