CD of the Day - "Sabrina Malheiros: Vibrasons"

CD of the Day
Sabrina Malheiros: "Vibrasons" (Far Out) 2006

A remix project of Sabrina's debut album, "Equilibria." The opening track is a killer recreation of her version of Marcos Valle/Paulo Sergio Valle's "Terra de Ninguém" by the Italian master Nicola Conte, who reconstructed the track by adding a complete new all-acoustic instrumentation (featuring Pietro Lussu's piano) and building up a new arrangement around the vocals of Sabrina and her father Alex Malheiros. Surprisingly, it sounds better than the original version heard on "Equilibria."
Daniel Maunick (aka DJ Venom), the album producer, also took care of this appealing nu jazz dancefloor collection, doing the remix of "Passa."
There are very good contributions also by Kirk DeGiorgio, Kenny Dope, Jean Paul "Bluey" Maunick (Incognito), Will Holland (Quantic), Mark Robertson (Spiritual South), Boston Rodriguez and Roc Hunter.
"Iemanjá", previously released only as Sabrina's first single EP, is included as a bonus track. And "Capoeira Vai" can be heard on two different remixes. However, there's no recreation of Ana Mazzotti's "Eu Sou Mais Eu," one of the best moments from "Equilibria."
