Caroll Vanwelden (vocals),Hans Van Oost (guitar),Mario Vermandel ( bass), Luc Vanden Bosch (drums)

 

After releasing five albums under her own name, this Belgian singer/pianist/composer shows her great passion for Brazilian songs on her latest album and interpreted Brazilian songs in her own and unique way. Since her youth, Caroll is an avid fan of Ivan Lins and Joao Gilberto, and "Elis & Tom" (Elis Regina and Tom Jobim) belongs to her absolute favourite CDs. The way how Brazilian artists play harmonically and rhythmically has always fascinated her and inspired her a lot. Deliberately she has therefore opted for a reduced cast: guitar, bass and drums. Carolls musical life motto "less is more" characterizes the acoustic warm sound of the album.

With "Portraits of Brazil”, Caroll Vanwelden presents once more on an emotional, rich and lively way, her seemingly endless supply of creativity and has once again produced a little jewel for jazz lovers around the world.
