The ninth solo album by Janis Siegel -- an accomplished leader who is nevertheless most famous for her membership in the vocal jazz quartet Manhattan Transfer -- is something that you almost certainly never saw coming: a collection of modern pop songs arranged in an assortment of Latin styles. Gimmicky? Willfully bizarre? Amazingly enough, it's neither. Siegel's strong, supple voice and her consummate taste allow her to bring something new and often subtly complex to every song, without indulging in unnecessary weirdness. Granted, her gifts aren't always sufficient to redeem mediocre material: Björk's "Hidden Place" gives her very little melodic substance to work with, and it makes for an unpromising opening track. But her take on Nellie McKay's "The Suitcase Song" is much more exciting, and the multi-layered Cuban percussion on "I Can't Help It" is brilliant. Even better is the Colombian harp solo on her rendition of Suzanne Vega's "Caramel," and the multi-tracked background vocals on her arrangement of Paul Simon's "Love" are breathtaking. There are many more such moments on this exceptionally fine album. Strongly recommended to jazz and pop fans alike.

Los Grandes Angulares...
Jordi Savall - La música, la vida, la discografía

Llovía a raudales durante aquella noche de octubre en el Bugey, donde por cierto suele llover a menudo en esta época del año. Era casi media noche. Éramos unos cincuenta apasionados esperando en el silencio, la humedad y el frío, este concierto del Festival de Ambronay. Luego, sin ruido alguno, llegó Jordi Savall, enfundado en un impermeable blanco y empapado, a lo Humphrey Bogart en Casablanca, apretando una caja con forma de cuerpo humano. Con gestos lentos, extrajo de ella, no una metralleta, sino una viola de gamba que empezó a manejar y a afinar con infinita precaución. Y el milagro nos envolvió.
