Press from the Tampa Bay area and beyond...
"On Sunday, July 8, the O Som Do Jazz Sextet performed to a packed Side Door cabaret room at the Palladium. Attendees lounged to the pitch-perfect sounds of the experienced jazzy players; a sonorous mix of instrumental numbers, classic Brazilian pop and sultry samba... Dynamic and subtly passionate, Moraes sang with a range that went from whisper soft to belly-socking belt-outs, drawing from Brazilian greats like Elis Regina." - Julie Garisto, Creative Loafing
"O Som Do Jazz does bossa nova the right way without getting lost in musical clichés." - Lissette Corsa, Global Groove Connection
"The group, which features the voice of Andrea Moraes Manson, has a deep and subtle understanding of how this idiomatic blend works best. Moraes Manson has obviously learned much for Elis Regina, but she allows herself to float inside the arrangements, making Infinita Bossa not so much a vocalist-plus-band as a complete integration: She doesn't control the band and they don't control her." - Charles Farrell, emusic
"Supple, sophisticated sounds from a local outfit well-versed in Brazil's wonderfully diverse music. Take a listen to the lively “Berimbau” and be hooked immediately." - Curtis Ross, Tampa Tribune
"A really classic-styled session of Brazilian jazz vocals --of the sort that takes us back to late 60s work by singers like Elis Regina or Leny Andrade!" - Dusty Groove
"With simple arrangements and a good mixture of solos exhibiting the fine musicians in the group, Infinita Bossa is a nice collection that praises Bossa Nova and its haunting melodies and soothing sounds." - Egídio Leitão, Musica Brasileira
