On this album from the Ébène Quartet, it's Brazil as you've never heard it before. Following their acclaimed Jazz/rock/pop fusion album Fiction (one of NPR's Top Albums, all genres 2011), the Ébène Quartet have made a mixture of bossa nova and samba, shaken up into an intoxicating cocktail of rhythms and melodies from a diverse range of cultures, countries, and musical traditions. Music includes the score from Terry Gilliam's 1985 film Brazil, Argentinian tango, and numbers by a variety of song writers such as Stevie Wonder, Sting, and Charlie Chaplin. Joining the Ébène Quartet to add even more spice to an already stellar album are French singer-songwriter Bernard Lavilliers and the stylish American jazz singer Stacey Kent.
