This review is from: Miss Perfumado (Audio CD)
I cannot find any fault with this music. Every track is a pleasure to listen to, whether it is slow or fast - and this is very rare: usually there are always a few tracks on any CD which don't appeal. The singing is beautiful, evocative, relaxing, and the instrumental backing is excellent - restrained, never dominating, and in perfect harmony with the singer. It could be played in any situation - a romantic candle-lit meal, a party or as general background music - and no-one could possibly object. Like a lot of the other music I listen to on BBC Radio 3's 'Late Junction' - you would never hear it on other more popular radio stations; in this particular case, Cesaria Evora's singing deserves a wider audience.
A few days before I received this CD, I heard of the death of Cesaria Evora. This sad news is tempered by the knowledge that the haunting beauty of her voice will live on to give pleasure to all who hear it and - like other great singers - who possess this gift of God, bring beauty and light into our lives.
