Raquel Cepeda
I'm Confessin

Raquel Cepeda is a geologist and a jazz singer. Her solo debut is deftly arranged and wonderfully sung.

"East of the Sun" gets a startlingly mature reading with a relaxed vocal. "Chega de Saudade" is a sparkling number with a vivacious vocal by Cepeda and some fluid playing by her band, while "Dream a Little Dream of Me" gets a soulful reading with Cepeda at her most expressive.

Her own "Me flechaste el Corazon" is a beautiful song with a fabulous arrangement. "Corcovado/Estate" closes the album on a good note, mixing the songs seamlessly. It's a lovely album all told.
