Vocalist, guitarist and flutist Ana Caram can be seen as the personification of a musical link between Brazil and the USA. Born in São Paulo (1958)
She graduated in composition and conducting at the University of São Paulo. A modest career in Brazil came to a change when Ana met Paquito D'Rivera at a festival in Finland.
He invited the singer to perform with him at New York's Carnegie Hall. And there Ana was spotted by a talent hunter for Chesky Records. For that label some well received albums were recorded, among which the album Rio After Dark with AC Jobim as a special guest.
Jobim was charmed by the singer's talent when they met in Rio and happily accepted the invitation to participate on that album.
On her 9th album Ana Caram enjoys the participation of keyboardist, arranger and composer Michel Freidenson. The repertoire, as the album's title suggests, consists of glamorous international known songs, along with a few of Ana's own compositions. The album's opener "Estate" is given an unmistakable Hollywoodish arrangement, complete with a little wink to the kitschy fusion that featured the music scene in Los Angeles during the late 1980s.
