from the critical acclaim garnered by Before We Lose Tomorrow, the
distinctive and mature voice of Maija thoroughly displays her obvious affinity
for the sounds, songwriters, and impressions of Brazil with her follow-up,
In Another Lifetime. Assisted by some of the DC area's finest, Maija is
also joined here by the distinctive brass expressions of trumpet and flugelhorn
ace Claudio Roditi, with a special guest appearance by one of the original
American artists to explore the Brazilian landscape, Charlie Byrd.
With a full-bodied voice that is blessed with an uncommon warmth, Maija has received her Brazilian lessons well. Maija has acquired the uniquely Brazilian singer's gift of speaking directly to each listener. She dedicates a wonderful samba da rua to none other than the legendary Elis Regina, whose memorable alto voice launched many a Brazilian romance. No vocal ingenue, Maija's is a seasoned approach to the songs of Brazil, as well as a way with timeless standards that invests in them fresh air, heart and soul.
Boasting tasteful arrangements by
Mike Crotty, In Another Lifetime introduces the listener to Maija's
singular approach to such Brazilian classics as Jobim's "Double Rainbow" and
the timeless "Agua de Beber", as well as such chestnuts as Harold Arlen's two
contributions, "Out of This World" and "A Sleepin' Bee" which bring yet another
flavor to the session. Maija's positively haunting title track is made even
more so by Roditi's luscious flugelhorn and Crotty's eerie bass flute."
