Marta Gomez Entre Cada Palabra Album

Chesky Records' organic approach is a perfect fit for Columbian-born singer/songwriter, Marta Gomez's simple, uncluttered, delivery. Boasting no overdubs, compressors, multi-tracking, or even large mixing boards, producers David and Norman Chesky do, however, allow Entre Cada Palabra's music to speak for itself. The 14-song CD offers of a wide range of accessible, genuine Latin set of Columbian cumbias and bambucos, Argentine zambas, Cuban sones, and Peruvian landos. Gomez, nominated for Billboard's Best Latin Jazz Album in 2004, displays the beauty of her angelic singing voice and arranging talents throughout but perhaps most exquisitely on "Cielito Lindo" which embodies a slowed-up tempo and chilling reverb.
