Description

“The album places Ms. Portuondo in close-up from a new angle: sometimes sentimental, sometimes mournful. She is 78, but her voice…rich, shapely, dynamic, and still sultry…Ms. Portuondo seizes the present as well as the past”.  –  THE NEW YORK TIMES

“The record as a whole is decidedly upbeat. Its spare, mainly guitar-driven arrangements, with a smattering of lush strings, gracefully frame Portuondo’s suavely insistent voice. Portuondo is still a vibrant contemporary performer” – THE LOS ANGELES TIMES.
