Maija: In Another Lifetime

Maija performs with fervent ardor, passionate on jazz standards like the Arlen-Mercer hit “Out of This World,” lyrical on Jobim’s “Double Rainbow” and hauntingly beautiful delivering Brazilian saudades. The Washington, D.C.-based vocalist-composer sings in English and Portuguese (translated in the liner notes), enhanced by guests guitarist Charlie Byrd and trumpeter Claudio Roditi aiding her Capitol-based ensemble.
