Album Review

Bomtempo, Alexia – “Suspiro” – [Ropeadope Records]

aarbor   3/9/2022   12-inch, International

Sultry voiced Alexia Bomtempo was born in the U.S. (where her mother is from) but began her musical career in Brazil (where her father is from), and now lives in NY. On this, her latest release from April 2020, she sings in Portuguese, French and English. She believes that the world needs more bossa nova. All the songs have a Brazilian sensibility to them even though they originate in other countries. The whole idea behind this album was to do everything live, in the spirit of the old recordings that she loves, with the musicians playing at the same time. The arrangement was done on the spot.
