Interview from Smooth Jazz.com

You’ve just released your second CD. “A Song of You,” which, as with your first project, “Summer Samba,” is a rich tapestry of Brazilian and Latin tunes and rhythms. What brought about the focus for you on this enticing genre of music?

When I started taking singing lessons about eight years ago, I was singing a lot of jazz standards; The Great American Songbook.
