(Azul do Mar)

Vocalist Sherie Julianne adeptly demonstrates great versatility on her debut release. 10 Degree South, a fantastic first outing for the Bay Area talent, is a beautiful blend of standards from the American and Brazilian classics songbooks. Julianne delivers the lyrics in both English and Portuguese with a warm and engaging voice. Marc Silva, a native of Rio de Janeiro, and mentor to the singer for more than a decade, arranged the tunes for the production. In addtion to Silva on keys, the project is graced by the musicianship of Scott Thompson on bass, Phil Thompson on drums, Jeff Buenz on guitar and Mary Fettig on flute and saxophone. This is a thoroughly enjoyable effort by Julianne from beginning to end .
