Tania Maria

Brazilian jazz vocalist and pianist Tania Maria's career has spanned over three decades, starting when she was just 13 and she fronted a band of professional musicians organized by her father, who was a metal worker and gifted amateur musician. He had encouraged her to study piano so that she could accompany him on his weekend jam sessions, but her musical talent grew beyond those small performances. Maria's four sisters also had musical talents, but they eventually grew from their impoverished roots to become professionals, a path that Maria was on herself as well. She attended law school for two years, then married and had a family. The pull of music was too strong, however, and in 1971 she released her first album in Brazil, Olha Quem Chega. In the late '70s she moved to Paris and expanded her career, touring internationally. A date in Australia brought her to the attention of guitarist Charlie Byrd, who hooked her up with Carl Jefferson, head of Concord Records. The label provided her with her first international commercial success with her 1984 album Come With Me, and continued to record her music and issue it to an international audience. Based in New York since the '80s, Maria still sings the pop and blues-influenced music that brought her fame, releasing several albums in the '90s. Her first album of the new millennium, Viva Brazil, was also released by Concord Records. ~ Stacia Proefrock, Rovi

Phenominal; I know no Porteguese, I float with my own translation.

I've loved her music, but never got the opportunity to see her in concert
I regret not seeing her in 1987. My and her cousin saw her, said it was the best concert she ever saw and she have seen a lot of concerts over the years.
Have been a FAN since 1982
A latin version of Tina Turner..

The more I plumb Pandora's musical library the richer my listening pleasure. This talented musician offers another dimension... a s have several other Brazilian discoveries of late.

One of the best Brazilian imports - I first saw her playing at a small Village loft - she not quite as well known then. She is such a lively, enthusiastic performer. I just love Brazilian music!! Samba on!
Tania Maria rocks
One word -Delightful! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

omg! I have found Tania Maria at last!....I have been a long time fan of hers...she was my very first taste of Brazilian music on my first date in the US where I have just arrived prior to few months...I was taken to her concert...wh a t an experience that was!! several years later in the Village in New York, I attended her concert again and met her back stage...thsn k you for playing her songs...Khin Khin
WOW!!! Venga por Tejas por favor!!!

She is AWESOME. I am so hooked on Brazilian Jazz. There is nothing as classy as Brazilian Jazz... OMG!
I'm hitting a gold mine today. I think I need to look into more Brazilian stuff because this kind of groovy sound was exactly i've been looking for recently.
WOWWW! I just listened to Azymuth and loved it. Now this song has me hooked!! The bassline sounded so groovy and her vocal melodies are really hypnotizing. She is a really nice vocalist.
i was listening to wrti out of philly one night back in 95' and she was doing vocals on an album by some old school jazz great and iwas hooked evr since
I saw her at Hampton Jazz Festival in the mid 80's. She had filled in for some cancelled artist and she moved the crowd with "Come With Me". Some 15 - 20 years later my neighbor and I was listening to her and he spoke of the same concert, when the audience thought it was intermission , taking restroom breaks, and suddenly, everyone stopped and began dancing in the aisles. Unbelievable that we had attended the same concert. We have been a huge fan of hers ever since.










her album "Lady From Brasil" was the first time i ever heard her, and i've been enamored ever since!
i admire her playing and singing
saw her in Atlanta in the mid 80's. great performer and pianist
