Many people think Maucha Adnet is the most soulful Brazilian vocalist performing today; certainly her voice is warm, textured, and sexy, and her delivery is passionate, classy, and informed by a keen musical intelligence. The great Antonio Carlos Jobimknew all this, choosing to perform and record with Adnet for the last decade of his life.
