Leon Lee

Nancy Curtin is one of the finest vocalists in the Pacific Northwest. I have heard her perform live for the last 25 years, solo and with a number of other ensembles, singing everything - Irish, jazz, and Brazilian. Her performances are flawless - singing comes very, very naturally to her, as borne out in this latest album. Highly recommended.

Soul Brasileiro
I was thrilled to her Nancy's recent album Soul Brasilieiro. Her interpretation of some of the best of the Brazilian songbook is flawless. Her voice has all the right elements of sensuality, lyricism, clarity and control. Having studied the language and the works of the great Bossa Nova artists, Nancy has perfected an authentic sound of her own that rivals many of the greats. Her supporting musicians represent the best of NW jazz and all blend their talents to create a fabulous cd.

Soul Brasileiro
Once again Nancy Curtain brings her crisp, angelic voice to Brazilian material. Some of her notes are so clear it gives me "chicken skin." Ron Steen, Portland's "master of ceremonies" keeps the shoulders swaying with a steady and true beat.
Tom Grant on piano and Dave Captein on bass are at their best and the mix is so solid that everyone's musical talents are given the sound they deserve. Congratulations to this hard-working and gifted quartet. Any savvy club or restaurant owner would be wise to hire this crew for a regular gig.

A Rare Find
This band expresses the true heart and soul of bossa nova music. The songs are classics,and include a lovely version of a rarely heard gem,"Deixa." "Mas Que Nada" is rockin! The vocalist, the acclaimed Nancy Curtin, has a beautiful voice, and the pianist is beyond great. (The wonderful Tom Grant). Bassist Dave Captein is showcased in a stellar solo, and drummer Ron Steen has just the right feel for this music. A truly fantastic collection of songs, which the song clips don't do justice.

Soul Brasiliero
Nancy Curtin's voice is pure Latin sunshine, and this little CD makes you want to hop on a plane for Brazil. There's nothing "little" about the music or the band. Grant, Captein and Steen know what to do with this music and they do it well. Tom Grant's vocals are warm and a nice mix with Curtin. I was driving when I first heard the CD and even so, the opening cut made me want to jump up and dance! Curtin has also captured well the poetry in "Waters of March" which is too often done in a rush. I've written about jazz for the past few years and am happy to encourage anyone new to this group to take a listen. The warmth of this CD is just what you'll want on the chilly nights ahead.
