O’s Notes: If you were to listen to this CD without knowing the owner of the soulful vocal tones, you’d never guess this to be Polish-born Beata Pater. But those who know her work would sit down, smile and enjoy the performance. Pater has sung Brazilian bossa nova, vocalese and traditional jazz and in each case done it with splendor. She has lived in Japan for a decade and recently formed a trio with pianist Hiromi Aoki and bassist Buca Necak. Their sound is soft and inviting over eleven pop tunes highlighted by “A Littel Tear”. Beata does remarkable things with her voice making the recording dynamic and inviting.
