ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Por Avión is a live CD recorded predominantly at Mississippi Studios music venue in Portland, Oregon, during two recent performances (December 2004 and February 2005).

Spanish for "by airplane," Por Avión complements the band's two studio albums of original material and features some of Amelia's most popular cover songs, several of which are sung in Spanish.

"Flor de Mal" by the Cruzados (an 80s L.A. band), and "Mar Y Luna," by Miguel Moly (Venezuelan meringue artist) are crowd favorites that are finally available on a recording. Por Avión also offers a live rendition of one of Amelia's most popular original songs, "Marigolds," from the band's 2004 performance in West Virginia on National Public Radio's Mountain Stage.

The Portland Tribune says:
"Worried that Sade is a little more cheesy than seductive? Take your hip hottie to see Amelia and keep your credibility intact. This local combo plays torch music for modern lovers. You wouldn't think three former members of the Flatirons could make music this delicious. While the Flatirons were a terrific old-school country band, they didn't exactly ooze sexiness. After hooking up with lead singer Teisha Helgerson, this once-twangy crew pasted together jazz, country and ethnic folk to create songs that are pretty enough for the mainstream but eclectic enough for tastemakers to savor. The new record, "Por Avion," finds the band polishing its beguiling sound, while its live show is one of the hottest around."

___
Por Avión was made possible in large part because of the efforts of Jim Brunberg, owner of Mississippi Studios. Jim and his crew hurredly set up mics and made this impromptu recording a reality.

Amelia thanks all the people who listen to their music and support their band. Gracias.

Just another great cd
This is just another gem from Amelia. All their music has been fantastic and this is no exception. Some previously recorded familiar tunes performed live and others I hadn't heard before because I don't think they have been in NYC yet (hint). I love this band. I could listen to Teisha sing anything anytime.

Great CD
There isn't a filler song on this CD. Every song is well done. Enjoyed the entire CD several times already.
