A calming Sunday morning record, Brazilian songstress Luciana Souza does not so much create a bossa nova vehicle for a collection of pop tunes as she does position herself as an engaging jazz interpreter of adult pop music. Her first English language disc, Souza turns to works by Joni Mitchell, James Taylor (who duets with her on his “Never Die Young”), Elliott Smith, Brian Wilson and others. The only tune given the bossa nova sway is “Love is For Strangers,” penned by Steely Dan’s Walter Becker and the producer of the album, Larry Klein; otherwise, title is a total misnomer. Pianist Edward Simon provides supple accompaniment leading an acoustic band that includes her longtime guitarist partner, Romero Lubambo.
