New album out now: Beatriz Nunes was the featured singer at the European Jazz Network’s On The Edge conference in Lisbon; All About Jazz reviewer Henning Bolte described her as “a highly original, audience-captivating act” with the “guts and capacity to carry it to audiences outside the Iberian Peninsula”. Beatriz’s first album “Canto Primeiro” is out now to great acclaim, the result of quite a career - from studying in the Lisbon Conservatory to going on world tours with Madredeus, where she is now the featured singer, and constantly working on her talent as singer and composer. The doyen of Portuguese jazz critics Rui Eduardo Paes wrote in jazz.pt that Beatriz “could not have had a better start for her recording career”!
Playfulness, a special Portuguese touch of melancholy and a kind of dreamy grandeur merge within her music, strong and intense as
well as light-footed rhythmical bedding. There is, unmistakably perceivable and audible, some deeply absorbed arabo-brasileiro
influence at work in the music. The result is its very own alloy, consistent, shining and charming. at https://bit.ly/2q0eOCf
