Rebecca Angel-vocals, Jason Miles-keyboards, Dennis Angel-flugelhorn, Gottfried Stoger-flute,
Christian Ver Halen-guitar, Adam Dorn-bass, Cyro Baptista-percussion and Brian Dunne-drums
New York based jazz vocalist Rebecca Angel's new single “Jet Samba” a playfully rhythmic track, produced by and featuring
keyboards of celebrated R&B/jazz producer Jason Miles.
The release marks the first time that legendary Brazilian composer Marcos Valle’s 2005 instrumental hit has been recorded as a vocal. Miles heard the original tune on Pandora and reached out to Valle – best known for his late 60s million selling classic “Summer Samba”. The composer warmed immediately to the idea of adding lyrics and turned to renowned songwriter Ronaldo Bastos to pen the romantic, hopeful lyrics – which Rebecca enhances with her beautiful voice.
“I like it a lot,” Valle says of the fresh interpretation. “It sounds like jazz-samba-pop, very sophisticated and charming –Congrats to Rebecca and also to Jason and the band for creating such a wonderful version of the song.”
“Jet Samba” features Rebecca’s father, contemporary jazz artist Dennis Angel on flugelhorn, Gottfried Stoger (flute), Christian Ver Halen (guitar), Adam Dorn (bass), Cyro Baptiste (percussion) and Brian Dunne (drums). The track was mixed by Jimmy Bralower at Dynotone Record and mastered by Mike Fossenkemper at Turtle Tone Studios.
“When Jason approached me with this great song and asked if I would be interested in recording it, I was immediately excited”. “I love its energy and quickly embraced the challenge of its complicated rhythms and complex harmonic structure. I’m really happy with the way it came out. I put in a lot of hard work to get it just right, and enjoyed every step of the process. I also love the way the band sounds and am always amazed at the way Jason’s production takes everything to the next level.”
