BRAZIL BEAT – THE BEAT MAGAZINEVOL 21 # 2, 2002By Mara Weiss and Nego Beto
After many years in the scene, San Francisco based singer and multi-instrumentalist Celia Malheiros releases her debut CD, a complex palette of jazz textures, MPB harmonies and Afro-Brazilian rhythms. Shades of Hermeto Pascoal dominate many songs on Sempre Crescendo (independent), and the mestre did compose one song for the album – on spot, in the studio with Malheiros. The whole thing was recorded down in Rio with top musicians, producing a polished sound with many unexpected twists and turns. Celia is a familiar face around northern California Brazilian and Jazz events and was the director of SF Carnaval Ball for many years; her multimedia project “Amazons” was very well received a few years back.
