On his new release Minh' Alma Nua (My Nude Soul), Fernando Holz sings and orchestrates original Brazilian pop-jazz music that makes the listener feel as though he or she is being spoken to directly. The Boston-based musician from the south of Brazil by way of Europe melds happiness and sadness with an uncommon ease. Poetry is achieved through his sensitive employment of mood, tempo, melody, and harmony. Never stilted or weak in sentiment, the music makes connections with that of the master, Tom Jobim.
