Cathy Menezes delivers highly engaging mix of Latin, blues, and vocal jazz on new album
(Published: July 10, 2016)

Singer/songwriter Cathy Menezes balances an irresistible mix of Latin, blues, and vocal jazz on her debut album, A Dream.

Although they are original compositions, there is a vintage feel to Menezes' songs in terms of execution and arrangements; they have one foot in the past and one foot in the present, giving them timeless appeal.

Menezes' velvety performances knocks these tracks out of the park, supported by a roster of supporting musicians that provide solid-steel back-up.

The title cut is as ethereal as its name. Menezes' voice has the sweet playfulness of Basia in her prime. Deep, hypnotic bass and lively piano add to its sense of exuberance. This is classy, highly engaging material that can cross over generations.

On "Will You Be Here," Menezes delivers some of her sultry and soulful singing as the funky bass lines injects a more contemporary feel.

Menezes is equally comfortable with faster and mid-tempo tracks. "Zoe" starts off as a soothing slow jam as Menezes pours on the romanticism. Her gentle crooning has the angelic beauty of a lullaby. When the song picks up speed, she remains in control, switching gears effortlessly. It's that kind of an album where the artist makes all the right moves.
