FRAGILE is a 14 song collection that fulfills every requirement of the most demanding Brazilian jazz listener! A new CD release that glows with harmony and beauty as sung & played by Paulinho Garcia and the lovely Grazyna Auguscik. Grazyna has the vocal ability to handle any song well, and she does so with much verve and sensitivity in these selections when she sings alongside Paulinho Garcia. Garcia has the same, beautiful sensitive in-depth vocals that place him in the same high class of ballad singers as the late Frank Sinatra.
Selections include "Voce," "Fragile," "Bridges," "Ponteio," "Auga de Beber," "The Girl From Ipanema," among others. "Fragile and "Bridges" are two of the most beautiful and haunting ballads to appear in recent years, and both songs highlight the vocal talents of Garcia and Auguscik singing duet. These two song interpretations should win awards! Such lyrical beauty!
FRAGILE is a perfect example of contemporary Brazilian jazz at its finest. The singing is crisp, fresh, innovative. Garcia and Auguscik are the ideal Brazilian singing duo, and FRAGILE captures their sound perfectly! Excellent!
