Pimenta Music, 2012, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: funk
O’s Notes: Amanda is a jazz bassist and she can play with the best on the contemporary jazz scene. This is What Happened is her debut recording and it is worth serious consideration. Ruzza composed 5 of the 7 selections and plays melodies as well as abjuring the bottom with drummer/percussionist Mauricio Zottarelli. Many of the tunes had a Latin bent and we enjoyed the cool swing of “Pimenta no Chro” and the title track. But the funky “Gin” and “Larry and I” really pop, placing Amanda on the radar for top smooth jazz acts!
