Patty Ascher “

“Bossa, Jazz ‘n’ Samba” (

Zoho 201103) 

Street Date: April 12, 2011

Brazilian singer Patty Ascher holds a bachelor’s degree in Literature from the University of São Paulo (USP), but she has always had the music in her life. Her father Neno was part of a very successful Brazilian band from the 70s, Os Incríveis (The Incredibles), and she has an uncle who works with many Brazilian popular artists. 

In 2007, Ascher released her debut album, Bacharach Bossa Club, produced by the great Roberto Menescal. The album featured Ascher’s versions of famous Burt Bacharach songs with bossa nova arrangements and was a best seller on Uol, the biggest internet portal in Brazil. The album was also released around the world. 

Ascher’s new album, Deu Jazz no Samba (Jazz in Samba), is a collection of 11 exquisite songs, most of them written by the singer with co-writers Marco Ponte and Ronaldo Rayol. Many great Brazilian musicians participated in this album, and Ascher says the disc is, in a way, a tribute to them. “We have so many talented musicians in Brazil, so we thought about making Deu Jazz no Samba a tribute to them. For me, it’s an honor to be able to have so many incredible players on the same team.” 

With the talent, personality, and elegance of Dori Caymmi, Amilson Godoy, Jota Morais, Eduardo Lages, Gilson Peranzetta, Aluisio Pontes, and Cristovão Bastos – some of the great names that participate in this work – and Ascher’s one-of-a-kind voice, the final result is an album filled with pop and jazz with a bit of bossa and some Latin ballads. Roberto Menescal – a famous Brazilian songwriter and Ascher’s mentor – was the Production Supervisor on the album, and he played his bossa-jazz-guitar on the track “Sunrise,” Ascher’s English version of the Brazilian song Amanhecendo, from writers Lula Freire and Menescal. “Summer Knows,” by Marilyn and Alan Bergman and Michel Legrand, has arrangements by Dori Caymmi and is a tribute to another important musician and inspiration in Ascher’s career – the French orchestra conductor, pianist, and composer Michel Legrand, who is a three-time Oscar winner, and with whom she toured around Brazil in 2008 and 2009.
