Brazilian Whispers… How appropriate is that as the title for an album by Andrea Brachfeld. Not only does the instrument she plays – the flute – lend itself to the kind of meditative Brasilian(how the word is actually meant to be spelled) music but the music itself “speaks” – indeed “whispers” – in a very special way to Miss Brachfeld. The repertoire on this album is no exception. Featuring exquisitely crafted arrangements of mesmeric variety and sensuousness, in every lovingly crafted phrase Brazilian Whispers, Miss Brachfeld’s love for Antonio Carlos Jobim, Vinicius de Moraes and Chico Buarque shines brightly.
