about

FR/ Après douze ans sur la route et cinq à créer son premier album solo, la chanteuse brésilienne - auteur-compositeur et guitariste, Jennifer Souza présente son premier album "Impossível Breve”.
L'album, sélectionné comme l'un des meilleurs albums brésiliens de folk-jazz par beaucoup de publications musicales, donne vie à neuf chansons évocatrices d'un style personnel de jazz-folk mûr et confessionnel. L'artiste, bien connu dans la scène locale, avait déjà eu de bonnes critiques pour son travail avec le groupe Transmissor, une référence dans l'état du Minas Gerais de la nouvelle musique pop brésilienne. Jennifer Souza est aussi responsable du "Mostra Cantautores" à Belo Horizonte, une initiative pour renforcer le travail de chanteur-songwriting contemporain dans Minas Gerais et dans le pays entier.
Sur scène, la voix profonde de Jennifer fait cause commune avec les jeunes talents de la musique instrumentale du Minas Gerais, comme Frederico Heliodoro (le bassiste, le compositeur et l'auteur de trois albums de solo acclamés), Felipe Continentino (le batteur et le compositeur), João Gabriel Machala (le trombone), Jonas Vitor (le saxophone) et Marcos Abjaud (le piano) et aussi par le guitariste Henrique Matheus. L'album a été produit par Thiago Correa, le collègue de la chanteuse dans Transmissor et compte une douzaine de participations, parmi eux Fabio Góes (São Paulo), qui partage le chant sur la chanson "Pedro e Lis". Jennifer Souza est à la croisée d'influence de folk-pop alternative (Mark Kozelec & Red House Painters - Jeff Buckley - American music club) et d'une musique brésilienne ancrée dans la terre et ses origines (Clube da esquina)
Conscient de sa propre fièvre transitoire, de son urgence immortelle, “Impossível Breve” est un jeu espiègle à remanier le temps, la réunion de neuf chansons doucement narratives et mortelles, une invitation au commencement, le milieu et la fin de tout ce qui compte, l'amour, un flash, un lieu ou un goût connu, l'arrivée et le départ.
Bien qu’il soit ouvert à la diversité, l'album a ses points culminants dans ce qui est familier, frontal et indiscutable à l’intérieur de nous. Même avec son raffinement, c'est un ensemble de chansons simples et touchantes.

UK/ After twelve years past on the road and five creating her first solo work, the brazilian singer- songwriter and guitar player Jennifer Souza presents the show of her debut album “Impossível Breve” (“Brief Impossible”, in a free translation). The album, chosen as one of the best brazilian albums of 2013 by many music publications, brings to life nine songs reminiscent of a mature and confessional folk jazz indie style. The artist, well known in the local scene, had already racked up good reviews for her work with the group Transmissor, a reference in the state of Minas Gerais of the new brazilian music. The group’s third album is about to be released next march. Jennifer is also responsible for the “Mostra Cantautores” in Belo Horizonte, an initiative to strengthen the contemporary singer-songwriting work in Minas Gerais and in the whole country.
On stage, Jennifer’s hoarse voice is sided by great young talents of Minas Gerais’ instrumental music, such as Frederico Heliodoro (bassist, composer and author of three acclaimed solo albums), Felipe Continentino (drummer and composer), João Gabriel Machala (trombone), Jonas Vitor (saxophone) and Marcos Abjaud (piano), and also by the guitarist Henrique Matheus. The album has been produced by Thiago Correa, the singer’s colleague in Transmissor, and counts with a dozen of partnerships and participations, among them Fabio Góes from São Paulo, who shares vocals on the song “Pedro e Lis”. Jennifer Souza is at the crossing of folk-pop alternative influences (Mark Kozelec & Red House Painters - Jeff Buckley - American music club) and a Brazilian music Anchored in the ground and her origins (Clube da esquina - Minas Gerais)
Aware of its own transitory fever, of its immortal urgency, “Impossível Breve” is a playful game of tinkering with time, a gathering of nine sweetly narrative and deadly songs, an invitation to the beginning, middle and end of all that matters – therefore, love –, a flash, a place or a known taste, the arrival and the departure, life garnished as music.
Even though its open to diversity, the album has its highlights in what is familiar, frontal and indisputable within us. Even with its refinement, it is a set of simple, touching songs of the kind that gives you butterflies in the stomach and reminds you that, after all, singing is easier than existing. It is an album that is an instant, a glance, a glimpse, a perfectly timed “subito”, a cutout, a brief and impossible world in the bid for its music.
