Amand Brecker's 4th album released on superior-sounding SHM-CD!

Amanda Brecker is a talented singer/songwriter and daughter of trumpeter Randy Brecker and pianist/singer Eliane Elias. Her debut CD from 2008 Here I Am became an instant hit in Japan, and her sophomore release Brazilian Passion earned the coveted status of Swing Journal Gold Disc. Her third album Blossom was a bit of a departure, it being a tribute to Carole King and James Taylor.

Like the third album, Amanda's latest release Way To Be was produced by Jesse Harris, the singer-songwrither and producer who's known for his association with Norah Jones. The music on this album can be described as jazzy pop with strong Brazilian flavors. The supporting musicians include two Brazilians (Joao Pedro Mourao on guitar and Mauro Refosco on drums and percussion), Los Angeles-based guitarist Anthony wilson, and New York-based keyboardist Sam Barsh.

The eclectic program includes six originals by Amanda and Harris, a few songs by contemporary singer-songwriters, Eliane Elias' tune "Running" and Antonio Carlos Jobim's classic "Waters of March." Five of the twelve songs are sung in Portuguese. Brazilian singer-songwriter Tiago Iorc sings a duet with Amanda on "Ciranda" and percussion group from Bahia, Brazil "Projeto Quabales" lend their hands on "Papo Furado."

Produced by Jesse Harris. Recorded in Los Angeles. Released in Japan by Universal Music in 2014. SHM-CD is a new CD formulation that offers superior sound quality and is compatible with all regular CD players.
