Postales by Gaby Moreno
Released: Jul 2012
Label: WM Mexico
Postales isn't so much an album as a rewriting of American music history that, this time, puts Latino voices in the spotlight. Moreno is a song-crafter par excellence, so each little postcard of a musical moment is richly hued, immaculately detailed: filmic waltzes, sultry vintage R&B, strolling Bourbon St. jazz, sleepy cowboy lullabies, pensive torch songs, all of it scorched in blues and sung like Judy Garland en espaƱol. Flamenco-mariachi-klezmer opera "El Sombreron" draws you in. Banjo-picked migratory tale "Ave Que Emigre" makes you think. "Quizas" sounds like it was written for her.
