 Notes & Reviews
 
Brazz Jazz is an innovative group that derives it's name from the combination of Brazilian music and Jazz. Vocalist Sheryl Cohen has a fiery, warm vocal sound which adds charm and sophistication to the Brazz Jazz repertoire. Sheryl's style and manner have been compared to Jazz Great, Diana Krall and to Brazilian Icon, Elis Regina. Guitarist Rubens de La Corte, has an unmistakable and inviting sound. His guitar concept can best be characterized as an intense groove coupled with a clean, warm attack. Rubens is the guitarist and musical director for Grammy Award Winner and 3 time Nominee Angelique Kidjo. He also tours with Brazilian pianist/singer Eliane Elias. Brazz Jazz has toured Brazil twice in support of 'Kick Off Your Shoes'. The CD remains a top seller at Sao Paulo's Popular Music Store Livaria Cultura. A fundamental aspect of Brazz Jazz, which sets them apart from their peers, is the choice of material. Ayrton Martini, Brazilian music critic and producer, writes. 'Brazz Jazz escapes from the Bossa Nova as the obvious translation of Brazilian Jazz'. He further states, 'The repertoire choices are not the usual Jazz standards and the songs are chosen with good taste and originality'.
