|Critical Acclaim for Bianca Rossini’s Vento do Norte:
"Vento Do Norte, is another collection of original Bossa Novas that further cement Rossini's reputation as a foremost composer of Brazilian music. The recording is buffed to a bright, pristine shine, warm to the touch and humid as a lover's breathe."
All About Jazz by C. Michael Bailey
“The beauty of Bossa Nova is back, courtesy of Rio de Janeiro native Bianca Rossini. Her third album is warm, winning and wonderful. Every track here (and Rossini co-wrote thee of the tunes and penned the lyrics for all 10 of these originals songs) proves to be endlessly engaging. Bianca clearly has earned a place among the top Bossa Nova artists of the day.”
Pop Culture Classics by Paul Freeman
“Ms. Rossini introduces ten compositions that are full of spirit, cover a variety of moods, and always contain the irresistible Bossa Nova rhythms. On Vento do Norte, Bianca Rossini stakes out her claim as one of the finest bossa-nova singers on the scene today, and one of its most important writers.” LA Jazz Scene Magazine by Scott Yanow
"When I conjure up perfect Bossa Nova in my mind, it sounds very much like Bianca Rossini’s elegant Vento do Norte. Bianca’s vocal delivery is sweet and sunny, the arrangements sway and swing entrancingly, and the songs stay with you long after the final notes fade away. Each track is a gem, luxuriant, gleaming and intimate, imbued with timeless traditions and ingenuity. Vento do Norte is a triumph, Bianca Rossini’s most fully realized and enrapturing release to date.”
Jeff Tamarkin, music journalist
"Bianca Rossini’s voice is pure, expressive, playful. Her songs poetic, richly grounded in generations of traditions for which she clearly has deep affection, not to mention expertise and facility. But what stands out most on Vento de Norte is her honesty, both emotional and artistic. Steve Hochman, music journalist
