”Sketches” Anna Luna Sextet 2007 (New Mood Jazz) Anna Luna wanted to reflect in her new album all the influences that have marked her artistic career. Styles like Jazz, Pop and Bossa-Nova are mixed with her warm voice resulting in an atmosphere of fresh yet elegant jazz. ”Sketches” deserves to be praised as one of the most challenging albums, by a jazz songstress, to come along in years. It's a truly rare case of a perfect repertoire in the beautiful & pure voice of a perfect singer, with the support of an infallible group of musicians. Anna Luna is such an original force of nature that even too often recorded songs like “My Favourite Things” (in an up-tempo arrangement, full of time signature changes, with Anna phrasing rhythmically a la Diane Reeves. Her seductive voice, her ability on ballads is another big quality. Anna Luna's herself provided the Spanish lyrics to three songs: Sinatra's hit “If I Should Lose You” (done in a delightful unpredictable arrangement), Dizzy Gillespie's bop anthem “Night in Tunisia” (that became “Y Se Hace de Noche en Tunisia”) and Cedar Walton's sunny original “Firm Roots”
