Coração Me Diga (Tell me my heart)

 “Why does my heart ache?” Coração Me Diga is a more pensive look inward with jazz-infused harmonies from Marcella Camargo's silky voice countered with Eduardo Mercuri's guitar melodies. Driven by the pulse of the rest of the group with the voices of piano, drums, electric bass, and percussion, the tune echos the soulfulness of the vocals with the call of the pedal steel guitar, not normally heard in Latin music.

Coração Me Diga is of the heart and yet, speaks to the heart. "This is the third song of the album, Pitanga, with songs composed by John Finbury, Ned Claflin, and Patty Brayden. The album provides a panoramic of Brazilian music forms and traditions: samba-reggae, bossa nova, and latin jazz. Sung in Portuguese and English, the tunes convey a visceral authenticity, borne of Brazilian music traditions and inspired by great artists like Antonio Carlos Jobim."

"At the same time, the music hews to the songwriter's own voice, furnishing a fresh and intrepid expression. Not only is the song writing first class, but the band is composed of veritable all-stars in their own right: Tim Ray, Oscar Stagnaro, Mark Walker, Ricardo Monzon, Eduardo Mercuri, Norman Zocher, Eugene Friesen and the late Roberto Cassan."
