    Moacir Santos, who passed away in 2006, was a very significant Brazilian composer and music teacher. Many of the top bossa nova practitioners were originally his students. He also worked as a saxophonist, arranger and conductor. This delightful set, one of Santos' final projects, has a dozen of his songs sung by the lovely Muiza Adnet, whose warm, flexible and versatile voice perfectly fit Santos' music. The instrumentation changes from song to song and Adnet shares the vocals with guests Ivan Lins, Milton Nascimento, her brother guitarist Mario Adnet and, on four occasions, Moacir Santos himself. From bossa novas and light pop to Brazilian jazz and ballads, Muiza Adnet Sings Moacir Santos is a well-planned and thoroughly enjoyable outing, a perfect tribute to the great Moacir Santos. ~ Scott Yanow

    Global Rhythm (Publication) (p.53) - "Backed by a fine jazz ensemble on these 12 Santos classics, Adnet's delicate, ethereal alto also gets a lift from guest singers....[An] exquisite recording..."
