Album Notes
After her first release for EMI: "Sola Contigo" (Alone with You), and her two subsequent releases for Universal Jazz Spain: “Como Agua entre los Dedos” (Like Water Between the Fingers), and “El Mar de mi Vida” (The Sea of My Life), Eva Cortés ranks among the young and most interesting composers and performers of the jazz scene in Spanish. Then came “Back 2 The Source”, which is Eva’s personal look at the essence of what she considers to be the mainstay of her musical influence: Jazz. It is an album packed with best-known standards, classical pieces from the American Songbook, in which the Honduras-born artist uses for the first time English as the main language in one of her recordings.
Her fifth album was released in 2012, "Jazz one night with Eva Cortés in Madrid", this time under the label " VERVE" . This CD/DVD was recorded in just one live show on December 28th, 2011 in Madrid. After having toured Spain, France, Norway, The Netherlands, and performing several times in New York City, this album is the fruit of “the solid base provided by a band performing with the same set-up for several years now, with many hours, experiences, and miles in common ... with the consistency provided by that sort of complicity which can only be achieved with ongoing and constant work”.
In may of 2013 and after spending more and more time in NYC, Eva decided to record with the musicians that had become her steady band in the US and who with she had the chance of performing this same year in her country of birth, Honduras. The result is "In Bloom". Recorded in Sear Sound, Manhattan and produced by the highly reputed Matt Pierson. Among the musicians who recorded this album we can find :Romain Collin (piano), Mike Moreno (guitar), Luques Curtis (drums), Reinaldo Dejesus ( percusions) Kendrick Scott (drums) and the great Christian McBride as special guest in a very special duo with Eva.
"In Bloom is made out of 11 songs, most of them are Eva's compositions except for 3 covers : “Whatever Lola Wants” by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, the Honduran song, “Puñadito de arena” and “Glory Box” by Portishead.

Eva Cortés: In Bloom
Everything good that can be said about a recording applies to "In Bloom," a gorgeous collection of mostly original music by Spanish singer/composer Eva Cortés. From the outset, the slinky, funky intro to "Sol" supports Eva's silky vocals. Sung Spanish has never sounded more beautiful than coming from the lips of this amazing artist. The combination of jazz and her native sounds is handled with grace and perfection. This is the music one listens to on a rainy day, alone (or with a lover) and a soulful glass of rich Spanish Tempranillo wine. Cortés caresses the song lines, milking them, stroking them and letting them flow. Instrumentation, production, arrangements -- all also excellent. This recording is an 11 on a 10 scale.
