I’m very proud to present this, Mayte Alguacil’s third album for Fresh Sound Records, after her two previous successes—“Day by Day” (2015) and “Trav’lin’ Light” (2017). Together, Mayte and Mike Kanan have brought us a thing of beauty this time, music that makes you feel. Both complement each other naturally, without unnecessary efforts, and everything flows with serenity through the caressing quality of Mayte’s enthralling voice. Her singing is mellow and full of love, her breathing peaceful, and she clearly understands the meaning behind the lyrics; and as for Mike, his relaxed swing and warm, tasteful touch at the piano, paired with a full command of the melody, give this album a certain poignancy that makes it shine.
There’s a great deal of emotional content in these performances, delivered with conviction and carried with grace. Through tenderness, Mayte and Mike make it all seem so simple, but don’t be fooled—their performances have depth and projection, and each song has enough entity and honesty so that listening to it becomes a very personal experience I’m sure you will enjoy.
