O’s Notes: Portuguese vocalist and composer Sara Serpa has a unique vocal style that is mostly absent of words with an abundance of improvisation. She leads a chamber jazz trio with Erik Friedlander (cello) and Ingrid Laubrock (sax) for her latest endeavor“Close Up. Serpa makes her voice a true instrument that is well incorporated into the mix. There are Latin spices in this set of nine originals that expose all details of sound in what Serpa says are close-ups of different episodes in her life.
