No forno............

 "Met up with wonderful singer Eugenia Melo e Castro and her long-time Producer Eduardo Queiroz.  Eugenia has a bunch of albums out, and deal in Portugal on Universal Music and needed to put a few tunes down to bring to Lisbon for label meetings to get financing in place for a new CD project.  I was honored to be asked to do the engineering and mixing duties for this quick demo project.

Eugenia sings beautifully...usually in Portuguese, but this album (and this demo) are in English...good for me!  She has a lovely voice that reminds one of the old days of Astrud Gilberto, but with a sense of experience, a melancholy and at times gritty voice that expresses maturity and secure knowledge of her chosen material.  I really dig her sound.  If you go to
http://www.eugeniameloecastro.com/ you will find a lot about her.

Eduardo composes for film and is a super arranger and guitarist.  We got along so well, that they have asked me to co-produce the full CD project, starting tracking this Spring.  I was asked where I thought it should be started and of course my answer was “Na Cena” !  They have a great tracking room..a few in fact...with all the right gear to make great sounds...Neumann, Neve, Chandler, Millennia, Grace, SSL, Royer, AKG, Manley...you name it, it’s there...or soon will be !  We are still discussing the destination for the mix on this project...Na Cena?  Dinemec in Switzerland?  Legacy in NYC?

I have posted an example of Eugenia’s work on my site (
http://www.petitjazz.com/)...on the SPOTLIGHT page.  This is a rather deep tune called “MERCIFUL”...I love it.

Hers is a shot of Eugenia, Me, Eduardo and assistant engineer, Zeca Leme, in the Na Cena Control Room ‘A’ after the end of the mix sessions...thanks go out to Marco, Zeca, Fabiano, Andr-ay-ay, The Great Gargel, and all the staff at Na Cena for helping me with both these sessions.  "
