'Nora la Bella' chosen ALBUM OF THE WEEK by Latin Jazz Net - (ENGLISH)
"The music is edgy and brilliant. Its energy is turbulent and visceral, and beautiful. Tisera sings with wondrous colouratura, in employing motifs and melismas awoken by radical ideas and revolutionary recitatives. Her music is also dramatically transformed by generational folklore, melded with Afro-centric and Spanish influences; just enough to suggest jazz idioms. And this is what makes it such an extraordinary recording..."

Nora la Bella: CD Review by Blogcritics.com - (ENGLISH)
