”A voice as big and rich as a star-filled night sky.” - Jazz Times

As a Jazz vocalist and wife of Latin superstar Ruben Blades, Luba Mason has embarked on an exquisite journey of the soul with her new CD, KRAZY LOVE. A rich musical travelogue that explores the arc of modern day relationships and infuses them with Luba's love for the music of Brazil, KRAZY LOVE continues the critically-acclaimed Mason's foray into the realm of contemporary crossover jazz vocals. KRAZY LOVE is set for release January 27, 2009, by Sunnyside Records.

“A powerfully emotional song interpreter” (All Music Guide), Mason is blessed with “A celestial voice” (Los Angeles Times) and genuine incandescence that draws unsolicited attraction when she enters a room. It's not simply the tall blonde's Slovak beauty, but her electrifying musical blending of Latin and Jazz rhythms mixed with the raw emotionality of folk and pop.

In her upcoming CD, KRAZY LOVE, Luba executes a “cool, Brazilian mood” with an intimate acoustic sound. Enhanced by well-known Brazilian musician Renato Neto on piano & keyboards (also pianist for the legendary musician, Prince), Luba is joined by top-notch bassist Jimmy Haslip (Yellowjackets), percussionist Cassio Duarte, Sandro Albert on guitar and Marco Costa on drums, with guest performances by the world renowned Hubert Laws as well as her husband, Latin great Ruben Blades. In addition to co- producing the album, Luba's blossoming writing talents are premiered in 8 original songs alongside two covers, creating a distinctive yet personal sound and style to this unique blend of melodies.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
