While on the debut album Bacharach Bossa Club, produced by legend Roberto Menescal one of the Bossa Nova fathers - Patty Ascher contributed with lovely bossa nova performances of some of Mr. Bacharach greatest hits: the cd was the best selling in UOL Portal (the largest internet portal in Latin America) and Patty performmed 42 shows in 16 months of hard work, since its releasead.
Now, Patty Ascher recorded her own compositions, highlighting the fusion of cool jazz with syncopated samba, in a very genuine and latino fresh way of composing and singing: were sure that you never heard something like that.
The artist came up with the idea of recording Jazzn Samba while she was touring with Michel Legrand in October 2008, in Brazil. This unique experience of sharing the stage with Mr. Legrand encouraged and inspired her to record a new album with her own songs.
Jazzn Samba mixes Portuguese and English lyrics, and features arrangements from 10 most important Brazilian conductors: Dori Caymmi, Roberto Menescal, Eduardo Lages and others.
Patty Aschers second album will be launched in Aug 2009, and soon will be available for licensing.
