The first album in 1991 by Monique Aragão, a Brazilian female keyboardist/composer from Rio de Janeiro. Thought it's one of the universal (so-called) Brazilian stuff, but she wrote all the music for this piece, which seems to be influenced by Gismonti and Pascoal, and it has a surprising left-field feel. Among them, "Lenda" which combines  funky bouncy development and piano tones in leftfield vibes, "Shedim" a Latin jazz-style tune that switches between rhythms, ”O Torto” an opening that sounds like piece of Sao Paulo experimental scene, develops into a high-speed samba, "Estudo Nº 5" a danceable jazz-funk tune, in addition, A3/B5 mellow tunes are also so good. It's a little unknown complete piece.

リオデジャネイロ出身のブラジル人女性鍵盤奏者/作曲家Monique Aragãoによる91年のファーストアルバム。いわゆるブラジルものの一枚かと思いきや、ジスモンチやパスコアールの影響かと思わせる全て作曲を彼女が担当した驚きのレフトフィールド感覚に富んだ作品で、跳ねるようなファンキーな展開とピアノの音色が絡む”Lenda”、リズムが入れ替わるように進むラテン・ジャズ風の”Shedim”、サンパウロ派を聞いているようなオープニングから高速サンバへ展開していく”O Torto”、ダンサンブルなジャズ・ファンク調の”Estudo Nº 5”に加えA3/B5のメロウな曲もいいです。非常に完成された知る人ぞ知る一枚。
