ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jazz keyboardist Morgan Bouldin has delivered a CD pulsating with Latin rhythms,
simmering in a wall of tropical fire. This resident Brazilian Gringo who speaks fluent
Portuguese, has captured his South American experiences as Soul Samba offers up a
glimpse of authentic Brazilian groove.
Still Remenber (Ainda Lembro), Marisa Monte’s classic pop hit, opens up the CD
with a bang as Bouldin composes a sultry Portuguese to English translation. Lora Sims
powers up a dynamic lead vocal, wailing with passion as she forgives her former lover,
letting him know that she was never able to forget him.
On My Girl, Brazilian rhythms blended with vintage soul, conjure up visions of a tropical paradise and of mighty, endearing love. Rarely has soul and samba been combined into such a lethal, toxic brew. Vocalist Kenneth Smith rips into his gritty, powerful lead with fearless abandon, channeling reflections of the soul masters of yesteryear. Phaedra Vaughner contrasts his primal calls with sweet, breathy whisperings reminiscent of the memorable duets between Donnie Hathaway and Roberta Flack. She sincerely reciprocates on the bridge section, yes she answers, I am your girl. If David Ruffin is turning over in his grave, it's only because of the earth shaking groove that Bouldin is laying down. With deep, sub-bottom bass, My Girl ventures into directions unimagined and unexplored. Peppered with vintage Rhodes piano, ukulele with an assortment of South American percussions, Bouldin creates a wall of sound and paints a canvass cascading into the soul-spirit realm. My Girl is a version for the ages as Bouldin the consummate producer and artist, pushes the envelope, never resting with his visionary creativity.
The music of Brazil has long had a hold on generations on American musicians, with its romantic and sensual flavoring. She's From Rio, the sparkling new release from Morgan Bouldin, continues in this tradition with an exotic hybrid of smooth jazz and sexy Samba grooves. Picture yourself on the famed Copacabana beach, close your eyes and pianist Morgan Bouldin faithfully completes the rest of your journey with a scorching cascade of Carnival rhythms and revelry. Performing a rendition of the great Brazilian classic, Tom Jobim’s Ela e’ Carioca, Bouldin’s personal experiences in Brazil inspire a disc rich in South American imagery and fascination. Rapper/vocalist Moreno G. adds some Gringo cool to this swinging affair, as he joyously announces noble intentions to his Brazilian dream girl, on Moreno’s Groove.
