Solo es Vivir

Solo es Vivir by Marta Gomez
Released: Apr 2003
Label: BigSur Records
Solo Es Vivir is not a perfect album, and Marta Gomez is not a perfect singer: At its best, Gomez's voice rings out like a bell; at its worst, she sounds borderline anemic and even a bit uncertain. But Gomez's adventurous songwriting, which trolls through Latin American folkloric traditions for inspiration, quilts together a fantastic range of influences that makes for intriguing listening. Better yet, she uncovers a jazz thread in her compositions that listeners can hang onto.
