Luciana Souza's debut on Mike Mainieri's NYC label established her not just as a strong vocalist, but also a composer of melodious yet highly complex music. Seven of the 11 tracks are originals, and they're handled expertly by Souza, saxophonist George Garzone, pianist David Kikoski, bassist John Lockwood, and drummer Ignacio Berroa. Souza handles the percussion herself, and co-producer George Schuller plays drums on the closing "Embraceable You." In addition to intricate pieces like "Muita Bobeira," "3 to 2 in Overtime," and "Say No to You," and brooding, poetic numbers like "Time Does Not Wait," Souza also includes two songs by Antonio Carlos Jobim: "Bonita" and "Retrato em Branco e Preto."

It's an audacious move, putting the words of one of the 20th century's greatest poets to music. All those who are familiar with the words have their own perceptions of the images, and – on some level – a feeling of the settings they should have. With just voice, piano, and a little percussion, Souza imposes her own vision on the poems of Pablo Neruda, as she has before on the work of Elizabeth Bishop, and it can initially seem strange and take listeners by surprise, as on the relatively upbeat and busy "House." "We Are Many" is imagined as almost an art song. Translating poetry to song is difficult, especially this work, with no regular rhythm or meter, and that's reflected in the tidal shifts of "Sonnet 99." There's true adventure in "I Will Come Back," sung over only percussion, a jaunty beat that's a celebration of life, rather than a commiseration of death. On "Sonnet 49" she employs marimba, giving a stately exoticism to the music.

Speaking In Tongues is a suite of musical poetry with the theme of language at its core. Luciana Souza’s stunning new album for Sunnyside Records draws on the talents of four of the most creative musicians working in Jazz today; players who, along with Luciana, come from five different places on the planet, and have five different languages as their native tongues. Together with the extraordinary vision of producer Larry Klein, they have melded their creative voices into an exciting new tributary of Jazz; one that breaks down compositional and sonic walls, and treads onto fresh ground in every sense. The Grammy Award winning vocalist and composer describes her new project as “a musical inquiry into language and conversation.”

"È uscita una nuova bambola, una specie di Barbie, però racchia. La Barbie cessa. La Barbie cozza. Ha la cellulite, le smagliature, le cicatrici e i brufoli adesivi che puoi appiccicarglieli addosso. Ma la cellulite non si stacca… volevo dirlo al 'barbaio', al 'barbigrafo'. Magari si staccasse! La cellulite non la togli neanche con il raschietto per levare il ghiaccio. Manco se ti entra Chiellini in scivolata… E poi c'è questa moda delle cose automatiche in casa. Che si accendono da sole. Tu non devi fare più niente, fanno tutto loro. Peccato che scleri. Siamo tutti pieni di iPad, iPed, iPod, iMerd, e di' se trovi una presa della corrente per attaccare il caricabatteria, che tra l'altro la batteria si scarica in un quarto d'ora…
