O’s Notes: Jazz vocalist Kat Parra takes us on a musical tour on Songbook of the Americas, mostly Latin tinged with tango, calypso, bossa nova, rumba, mambo and bolero! She makes it special by inviting guest artists Tuck (g) & Patti (vocals) for “Dare To Dream”; Marcia Márquez (vocals) on “Como La Cigarra” and Nate Pruitt (vocals) on “Till There Was You”. Lyrics are in both English and Spanish over eleven selections along with spirited scatting. This is an excellent illustration of the wealth of American made music across both continents.
