4.0 out of 5 stars Mellow Brazillian sounds with some familiar, some new songs
Stephen Bishop teamed up with a Brazillian guitarist to create this record, so he doesn't actually play guitar himself, which is unusual.
I guess there are only four truly new songs, but some of the others are probably unfamiliar to all but Bish's most hardened fans, like the cute 'Hello' (nothing to do with the Lionel Richie song of the same name).
This album...

1.0 out of 5 stars Autotuned to oblivion
The mood is Latin cool - nothing challenging but very pleasant. The trouble is that Bish's vocal is autotuned to death. Why on earth would an accomplished singer let them do this - nasal, mechanical, sound-alike. Horrid.

Stephen Bishop teamed up with a Brazillian guitarist to create this record, so he doesn't actually play guitar himself, which is unusual.
I guess there are only four truly new songs, but some of the others are probably unfamiliar to all but Bish's most hardened fans, like the cute 'Hello' (nothing to do with the Lionel Richie song of the same name).
This album originally appeared under the name 'Saudade', but the record company deemed the name (a Brazillian word hard to translate into English) too obscure and retitled it 'Romance in Rio'. Hmm.
Either way, what you get is a very laid back and attractively produced album with a latin twist on some Bish standards. It's all very relaxing.
The new songs are good, especially the unusual and humorous 'New York in the Fifties' that closes the album, which has very clever nostalgic lyrics and a smooth jazzy style.
