O’s Notes: Mexico Azul is a celebration of Mexico’s bicentennial, a perfect project for Mexican jazz singer Magos Herrera. She incorporates the work of composers Agustin Lara and çlvaro Carrillo. Both embraced African roots in their music and while not as prominent as in other Latin American countries such as Brazil, there is a definitive thread. The lyrics are warm and inviting in Spanish, Portuguese and English. This is a worthy effort that puts Mexico on the jazz radar.
