Unbridled passionate vocal jazz Bianca Rossini – Apaixonada

Contemporary Fusion Reviews by Dick Metcalf

Unbridled passionate vocal jazz Bianca Rossini – APAIXONADA: As soon as I spun the first track on this unbridled passionate vocal jazz album from singer/songwriter Bianca, I knew it was an album many of you would like (without reservation); here’s an earlier performance that will make you fall in love with her music right away...
You can also enjoy several other videos featuring her lovely and elegant style when you SUBSCRIBE to her YouTube channel. I signed up right away.
One of the things that really “set Bianca’s album out from all the other artists” is that all ten songs are originals... the horn and guitar solos on the title track, “Apaixonada” (translates to “Passionate”, per the online translator), carry her vocals up into the stratosphere, and you will soar right along with Bianca, I have no doubt!
The tune that had me up and dancing ’round my listening studio with my headphones on was the joyful and lively “Meu Coração Faz Tum Tum” (“My Heart Goes Tum Tum“)... totally representative of Bianca’s beloved Brazil, with some stunning piano work on this song as well.
If you’re a lover of passionate and fiery Latin, Bossa Nova and jazz, this is an album you must have in your collection... I give it a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98. Get all the information on Bianca’s page – it’s officially released now, as of 15 November, 2023. Be sure you visit Bianca’s website, too.


Bianca Rossini - Apaixonada

Wild Mercury Rhythm by C. Michael Bailey

Brazilian singer Bianca Rossini has spent the last decade redefining Brazilian popular music with her incorporations of jazz, pop and rock elements to her performances. She is a noted composer and lyricist whose previous recordings for Apaixonada Music include, Rio Paradise (2021) Vento Do Norte (2017), Meu Amor (2012) and Kiss of Brazil (2011). On Apaixonada, Rossini delves further into Brazilian Pop music never straying far from the humid climes and high pathos of her native Rio De Janeiro.
Rossini meets a cultural need to provide Brazilian music with more accessible and contemporary material for future consideration. The old guard of Brazilian music, Jobim, Gilberto, and Moraes, tire from constant reinterpretation. Rossini throws the door open with a completely modern approach to the music that is fresh and sexy and fun. The singer assembled a cadre of exceptional musicians from Brazil, Portugal, NY and California each of whom bring their own specific charms to the project. Longtime associate Peter Roberts returns to produce the recording with Rossini ensuring a seamless blend of pop, bossa nova, and samba are combined into a heady alchemic mix. Rossini wrote “Apaixonada” mainly in Ipanema, Rio, each track is a love letter to Brazil's vibrant culture and scenery.
The arrangements and instrumentation are forward-thinking and inspired, reminiscent of the work of Serge Gainsbourg in its international appeal. The title piece features the tart trumpet of Luiz Alves and expressive electric guitar of Roberts. It is a bright song belaying the axiom to “...never start an album with a ballad.” “Pé No Chão” further channels and updates Gainsbourg’s best work. “Terra Natal” adds a certain island lilt, breezy and insistent. Rossini proves to be multidimensional in a profound and entertaining way. This is a welcome addition to her discography.

Bianca Rossini – Apaixonada

Cultuurmania by Patrick Van de Wiele

Vanuit Beverly Hills in Californië bereikt mij het nieuwe album van zangeres Bianca Rossini. Vele jaren geleden ontdekte ik haar op CD Baby. Bianca werd geboren in Rio de Janeiro en is een ervaren Tv- en filmactrice, danseres, choreografe, auteur van drie boeken en was de coproducent en gastvrouw van de tien jaar durende wekelijkse tv-talkshow ‘The Bianca Rossini Show’. Haar albums en EP's ‘Kiss of Brasil’, ‘Vento do Norte’, ‘Meu Amor’ en ‘Rio Paradise’ en drie singles lieten haar sensuele, intieme zangstijl horen. Muziekcritici bejubelden haar overal ter wereld (ik ook), en sommige van haar nummers zijn meer dan 1 miljoen maal gestreamd, plus haar albums stonden op nummer 1 op Spotify en Pandora.
Voor dit nieuwe album zocht ze 15 buitengewone musici bijeen uit Brazilië, Portugal, New York en Californië, die allen hun hart in dit project staken. Bianca coproduceerde het samen met multi-instrumentalist Peter Roberts (die ook instond voor de mixing), en opent met de titeltrack, in een mengeling van pop, bossa nova en samba. En dat geldt eigenlijk voor het hele album.
Dit project vertegenwoordigt Bianca’s testament voor haar liefde voor muziek, voor haar thuisland en de ongebreidelde passies die in elke noot te horen zijn. Ze schreef de 10 tracks voor het merendeel in Ipanema, als een liefdesbrief aan het adres van de vibrante cultuur en landschap van Brazilië.
Beeldt u dus in dat u zich koestert in de warmte van een Braziliaanse avond en luister naar dit album. Laat u net zoals ik, betoveren door de warme songs. Ik schreef jaren geleden al dat ik verliefd was op Bianca’s stem en muziek, en dat is nog steeds zo! “Viva o Brasil!”

So imagine yourself basking in the warmth of a Brazilian evening and listening to this album. Let yourself be enchanted by the warm songs, just like me. I wrote years ago that I was in love with Bianca's voice and music, and that is still the case! “Viva o Brasil!”

Bianca Rossini: Apaixonada

Jazz Weekly by George W. Harris

With one foot in the tradition and the other in modern Brazil, Bianca Rossini brings fresh ideas to the timeless tones of Bossa Nova with her latest album of originals. The ten pieces include a mix/match team of Flavio Medeiros-Yuko Tamura-Fernando Leitzke-Peter Roberts/p-k, Peter Roberts-Cassio Duarte-Rogerio Boccato-Elbeton Paixao/dr, Sezin Turkmenog-Jackson Silva- Peter Roberts-Sezin Turkmenoglu/b, Reinhold Schwarzwald-Luiz Alves-Levy Silva-Leonardo Rochadel/horns and Glauber Seixas/g, all able to create moods ranging from classic sounding sambas like the joyful “Meu Coração Faz Tum Tum” and sensuous “Sempre Acaba No Barzinho” to the upbeat and rockish “Sei La Sei”.

Rossini herself comes across as an actress knowing her part for each role, festive with the horns on the celebrative “Menina Que Reza” and carrying a torch with Tamura’s piano and Roberts’ strings during the aria of  “Pé No Chão”. She reclines on Medeiros’ piano on the lush “Luiza” and is as breezy as a summer wind Seixas’ chiming chords of “Maringa”. Each song has Rossini oozing out optimism and warmth, like a froth overflowing from a root beer float, sweet and bubbly. Rossini makes the tried and true sound ultra modern.


Bianca Rossini - Rio Paradise

Apaixonada Music 2021

One of the finest bossa-nova singers around today, Bianca Rossini not only has a warm and quietly sensuous voice that is perfect for the melancholy yet infectious music, but she writes many of her own songs and lyrics. Her latest EP Rio Paradise, which follows her three previous albums (Kiss of Brasil, Meu Amor, and Vento do Norte), consists of five songs. She wrote or co-wrote all of the lyrics and composed the music for two of the numbers.
Whether it is the bittersweet “Mariana,” the joyful “Ipanema Paradise,” or the thoughtful “Tic Tac do Amor, Bianca Rossini adds to the legacy of bossa-nova not by merely reviving the music’s hits but by giving today’s listeners new compositions that keep the style fresh and lively. Rio Paradise is an excellent example of her talents.

Rio Paradise by Jukebox

Ah, qu'il est doux de se réchauffer aux tendres sons de ce nouvel EP de la chanteuse brésilienne, dont la voix délicieuse œuvre tel un baume propre à soulager toutes les peines. La langue, le portugais brésilien, joue également pour beaucoup dans le charme dégagé par ces nouvelles chansons, il s'en dégage une sorte de mystère lointain qui laisse imaginer plus qu'il ne dévoile. On se prend alors à rêver, à déambuler, en imagination, dans ces chansons aux effluves, folk, jazz et pop, entre piano délicat et arpèges de guitare sèche ensoleillés.

Jazz Wax by Pop Culture

Couldn't we all use a great escape right about now? Bianca Rossini is back, once again providing a breath of fresh air as she whisks listeners away, musically, to Brazil. Rossini, who hails from Rio de Janeiro, displays an exceptionally pretty voice. She brings a magical quality to the melodically and rhythmically intoxicating original songs on this new EP. Bossa Nova has never been more beautiful. Rossini also served as co-writer of these ravishing numbers.
Whether she's singing in English or Portuguese, the subtle sensuality of Rossini's vibrant voice will elegantly transport you. Listeners might recognize the title track, "Ipanema Paradise." It was among the highlights of her previous album, "Vento do Norte." But this time she's performing it in an English language version. "Return to Brazil," previously issued as a single, is a warm, gentle breeze. The arrestingly amorous "Tic Tac do Amor" will leave you swaying and sighing. "Mariana" and "Canto de Mi Tierra" are also Portuguese language gems.
With Rossini's alluring vocals and enticing instrumentation bubbling behind her, these tracks truly sparkle. The EP is an aural paradise indeed.

Jazz Wax by Marc Myers

Bianca Rossini—Rio Paradise (Apaixonada Music/BDM). Bianca, a singer who divides her time between Los Angeles and her native Rio de Janeiro, has just released a five-track EP that includes three new originals that she wrote with Peter Roberts—Mariana, Canto de Mi Tierra and Ipanema Paradise. At a time when travel and vacations are all but impossible, listen carefully and her voice and music will put you on a Rio beach. Her beautiful voice will remind you of turquoise water, silky sand, palm-tree shade and the distant sound of children playing. A sensual audio experience. Go here or Apple Music.


Bianca Rossini: Rio Paradise

Jazz Weekly by George Harris

While many vocalists sing about “The Girl From Ipanema”, only Bianca Rossini actually sounds like the lady you imagine, with a voice and delivery on her Brazilian songs that sound tall, tan, young and lovely. Think of a vocal version of Anne Sheridan, known for being the “oomph girl” of the 40s because she had that little something extra in her style. She’s released a number of eps and albums and tours a bit ( I caught her in a sizzling set a number of years ago), and she delivers songs to make you feel like you’re walking barefoot along a beach with the foam of the waves tickling your toes.

This recent ep has Rossini composing the material with either Peter Roberts, Glenn Scott Lacey or Jon Gilutin, and she sings in both Portuguese and English. You may not understand her lyrics, but the way she delivers them, you just don’t care, as her voice embraces you like a reunion with a lover. With upbeat acoustic guitar and percussion, her alluring voice is luscious and sensuous on “Mariana” and folksy on the breezy “Return To Brazil”. She holds you tight while sashaying to some piano and tenor sax on “Ipanema Paradise” and bounces with aplomb on the tropical “Tic Tac do Amor”. She enters the darkly lit room with a romance on her mind on the long shadowed “Canto de Mi Tierra” finally blowing out the candle at the end. This is a lady who knows how to create a mood to be woo’d, all under a Brazilian sunset.

Bianca Rossini “Rio Paradise”

Remember the first time you heard bossa nova music, how it instantly transported you to the beaches of Brazil—regardless of where you were at the time? “Rio Paradise,” the latest EP from the internationally acclaimed Brazilian vocalist and composer Bianca Rossini, brings that feeling back again. These five captivating songs recall the classic bossa recordings of the 1960s while simultaneously exuding a completely fresh and original vibe. Sung in both Portuguese and English, the songs on “Rio Paradise,” all with lyrics written in full or in part by Bianca, and with music by Bianca and other contributors, are an invigorating summer breeze, instantly welcoming and joyful. It’s comforting just to know that someone in this world is keeping this beautiful, ever-comforting sound alive, especially at a time when we need all the happiness and pleasure we can get!


Bianca Rossini - Rio Paradise

Girl Singers by Doug Boynton

Bianca Rossini – Rio Paradise (Apaixonada Music/BDM Records) Released – 11 February 2021

Can I fully appreciate music with lyrics in a language that’s not mine?

Bianca Rossini is a Brazilian-born, Beverly Hills-based singer-songwriter. This is a five-track EP that features all original material in Portuguese and English. This builds on her last album, “Vento do Norte.” Ms. Rossini flips the switch on one track from that album – “Ipanema Paraíso” – from Portuguese to English, to become “Ipanema Paradise.” “Return to Brazil,” released in 2017 as a single, is performed both in English and Portuguese. Once again, Ms. Rossini brings an effortless sensuality to the lyrics in both Portuguese and English. The two opening tracks are in Portuguese – “Mariana” and “Canto de Mi Tierra.”

About “Canto de Mi Tierra,” Ms. Rossini says it was composed on a trip to Lima, Peru:

“One night, I visited an art gallery next to where I was staying, where there was a sculpture exhibit by a Columbian artist. An art piece immediately touched my heart, and – boom – right there, the entire song was born. I was alone in the gallery, and I walked around singing the new melody and words. There was a bit of an echo; it was a very intimate and spiritual experience. Peru is an extraordinary place for me.”

The backing group frames Ms. Rossini’s supple voice nicely. Back to the original question – Can I fully appreciate music with lyrics in a language that’s not mine?

This is a set of tunes that are easy on the ears. When it’s this good – it really doesn’t matter.

This set is highly recommended – “Ipanema Paradise” will be added to the playlist at Online Radio.


Supermodel Samba

Aquarian Weekly by Mike Greenblatt

Blame it on the bossa-nova but Bianca Rossini, on her third CD, can give up her day jobs. She’s the Brazilian actress, poet, author, singer, songwriter, supermodel, television host and columnist whose Vento do Norte (Apaixonada Music/BDM Music) is so mellifluous and sensual that it’s bound to be an international hit.This is a gal who knows whereof she came, thus she name checks the greatest samba of them all -- Antonio Carlos Jobim’s 1964 “Girl From Ipanema” -- in her own “Ipanema Paraiso,” a bold move if you can’t back it up...and she does, in spades. (It helps to have the silken tone of tenor saxophonist Jimmy Roberts adding a sailing solo.) She’s also brave enough to openly write of lust in her “Tic Tac do Amor.” The 10 playful beach-ready tracks utilize different rhythm sections for segues that sound as passionate as they do soulful. My only confusion is “Paris In Beverly Hills” where she sings the title line in English, begging the question of why Paris without the pay-off of an answer in the verses which are sung in Portuguese. Still, this is a sensuous and seductive keeper.


Rossini Presents: Vento do Norte

World Music Report by Raul da Gama

Bianca Rossini has an extensive acting repertoire on both television and on large screen. She is also a fine singer and celebrates that part of her artistry on Vento do Norte, her third full-length album released both digitally and on disc in 2017. Her earlier recordings may have found her searching for her ‘perfect’ voice. On Vento do Norte she is within a hair-breath of finding it. The inspirational nature of the music – the music of her beloved Brasil – relies so much on temperament to carry into the ascendency that perfection can be heard almost immediately on these ten songs that leave one gasping in wonder at a voice so articulate, pristine and yet also so sensual and beckoning.

Perhaps it is a bit unfair that Bianca Rossini has the advantage of ‘acting’ – very successfully at that – to add to her sublime voice. She certainly takes good advantage of both crafts as she allows the songs to speak to her in the intimacy of her heart. Moreover, each note and phrase that results – incisive and intelligent as it is – comes from the depths of her feet. And even if there is an unaffected simplicity of utterance in the singing of the lines, there is no doubting the depth of emotion that underpins the telling vocals of these songs. Which are all sung with intimacy, focussed timbre and quicksilver diction.

In terms of the gentleness of her voice and the ecstatic immediacy of her metaphorical singing, Bianca Rossini is able to imbue the lyrics with a sort of liquid gold. Naturally, the best of these efforts lie in depicting love in all of its sensuality, joy, pain and other matters of the heart. Fortunately for us on this recording there is a surfeit of the former experiences rather than that of the latter. As a result we are able to fall hopelessly in love with songs such as “Vento do Norte”, “Doce Amor”, “Meu Sonho” and of course “Coração de Ouro”, which along with other songs are sung in a bright, deeply responsive soprano to absolute perfection. Miss Rossini’s cause is enormously benefitted from luscious arrangements and sound production – largely the work of Peter Roberts – to go with all of her efforts.

Vento do Norte
Apaixonada Music & BDM Records

Rio de Janeiro-native singer Bianca Rossini follows her successful releases of Meu Amor (Apaixonada Music, 2012) and Kiss of Brazil(Apaixonada Music, BDM Records, 2011) with the present Vento Do Norte, another collection of original Bossa Novas that further cement Rossini's reputation as a foremost composer of Brazilian music. Rossini is a welcome presence because of both her seamless knowledge and talent composing in a contemporary Brazilian idiom. I believe that Jobim, Gilberto, and Moraes can stand only so much interpretation before even their impressive books are reduced to cliché through overuse. Rossini introduces to the mix songs like the clever "Tic Tac Do Amor" and the sprite title cut into a mix that longs for new material to interpret. Produced by the multi-talented Peter Roberts, who also does the piano, bass, and strings honors, the recording is buffed to a bright, pristine shine, warm to the touch and humid as a lover's breathe.



Pop Culture Classics by Paul Freeman

The beauty of Bossa Nova is back, courtesy of Rio de Janeiro native Bianca Rossini. Her third album is warm, winning and wonderful. Among the gems here are “Paris in Beverly Hills,” “Ipanema Paraiso,” “Doce Amor,” “Why I Smile” and the title track. Subtly seductive rhythms and impeccable instrumentation complement the lovely and alluring melodies. Singing in both Portuguese and English, Rossini’s voice is soft and sensual, sophisticated and sublime. Though she draws from classic Bossa Nova tradition, Rossini delivers the music with a fresh, contemporary feel. Every track here (and Rossini co-wrote thee of the tunes and penned the lyrics for all 10 of these originals songs) proves to be endlessly engaging. With “Vento Do Norte” (which translates as “North Wind”), she breezes along with authentic emotion and silky intimacy. Now based in Los Angeles, Rossini, who has also earned recognition as an actress, model, poet, author, arts columnist and talk show host, clearly has earned a place among the top Bossa Nova artists of the day


Bianca Rossini - Vento do Norte

LA Jazz Scene Magazine by Scott Yanow

While the golden age of Bossa Nova was back in 1959-65 when Antonio Carlos Jobim, Joao Gilberto, Astrud Gilberto, Charlie Byrd and Stan Getz made major contributions, the music has continued to be popular and evolve in the decades since.

One could imagine Bianca Rossini with her attractive and seductive voice tackling the Brazilian warhorses, but instead on Vento do Norte she performs ten of her own bossa nova originals. The singer, who was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro but now lives in Southern California, had previously recorded Meu Amor and Kiss of Brasil. On this set (which is also available digitally from, Ms. Rossini introduces ten compositions that are full of spirit, cover a variety of moods, and always contain the irresistible bossa nova rhythms. She wrote all of the lyrics and co-wrote the music with a variety of writers. While all but one of the songs are sung in Portuguese, the beautiful melodies, the infectious rhythms, and Ms. Rossini’s warm and sensuous voice result in a set of accessible music that is certain to delight a large audience. Highlights include the gentle love ballad “Doce Amor,” “Ipanema Paraiso” (which features tenor-saxophonist Jimmy Roberts), “Why I Smile,” and the catchy melody of “Tic Tac do Amor.”

On Vento do Norte, Bianca Rossini stakes out her claim as one of the finest bossa-nova singers on the scene today, and one of its most important writers.


ROSSINI’S OVERTURES…Bianca Rossini: Vento do Norte

Jazz Weekly by George Harris

If you like your Brazilian sounds romantic and sensuous, then Bianca Rossini is set to cater any meal. These ten songs have the velvet toned chanteuse creating lovely sounds with a mix of her own lyrics with traditional samba themes.

With a team including Peter Roberts/p-g-b-key, Steve Rawlins/p, Robert Montero/g, her voice is more confident and stronger than her earlier album, asserting herself with rich piano work on the title track, while still able to deliver her delicate wisp of a voice on the intimate “Tic Tac do Amor” and the coy “Why I Smile.” She saunters with delight with “Meu Sonho” and is languid on the couch during “Doce Amor.” Some caresing tenor sax work by Jimmy Roberts adds to the seduction of the vintage sounding “Ipanema Paraiso,” and calming vibes from Marilyn Berglas create a mist on “Coracao De Ouro.” A duet with pianist Steve Rawlins on “Que Cor” makes you beg for an entire album in a similar mood, if one doesn’t get a heart attack by the end.


Vento do Norte/Bianca Rossini

Deep Roots Magazine by David McGee

Even if it’s not the cultural phenomenon it was in the late ‘50s into the early ‘60s—when the likes of Gilberto, Jobim and Getz were riding high–Bossa Nova is very much with us in these inclusive times, and Rio native Bianca Rossini might well move into the front ranks of impressive youthful practitioners with her third album, Vento do Norte (translation: North Wind)

Ms. Rossini is a Renaissance woman with a serious resume. Born in Rio de Janeiro, she began performing at age three. After moving to the U.S. as a teenager (she now lives in Beverly Hills), she began her journey in academia, attending the U. of Maryland and George Washington University for dance and theater, and concurrently attended the Washington School of Ballet. In addition to choreographer credits in film and video, she has been a runway model; an actress with movie and TV credits (Chicago Hope, among them); a poet and published author of three book; an arts columnist and host of a weekly cable TV talk show with a national following. According to her official bio, her first two recordings, Kiss of Brasil and the EP Meu Amor, “have been featured on over 100 jazz radio stations in more than 15 countries in the United States, Europe and South America,” in addition to her music being number one on Pandora’s Bossa Nova radio and amassing a million streams on Spotify

Vento do Norte is her great leap forward as a musical artist. Much like Melody Gardot, she captures the flavor of the past with enough modern flair to make it all sound fresh. In addition to a seductive voice blending Astrud Gilberto’s sensual breathiness with a clear, resonant tone along the lines of, say, a classic pop stylist of yore such as June Christy, Rossini writes her own lyrics (and some of her own music), offering her unique take on the glory and mystery of love. Clearly she has enough confidence in her own voice—as a writer and as a singer—to dispense with the seemingly de rigueur Jobim and/or Gilberto covers. And despite using multiple producers—often a sign of problems in the studio that manifest themselves as a disjointed program on disc—Vento do Norte is seamless in sound and ambience; perhaps credit in large part is due to multi-instrumentalist Peter Roberts, who produced or co-produced all of the album’s 10 tracks; apart from Michael Levine, whose only credit is as co-producer, with Roberts and Rossini, of “Que Cor,” all the co-producers are also playing on the album, namely Patrick Lockwood, Mark Nilan, Jon Gilutin, Steven Rawlins and Marilyn Berglas, and all are, like Roberts, playing multiple instruments and writing arrangements. On the basis of sound and style, of framing Ms. Rossini’s personable voice in ways that both complement and enhance her readings, this team, largely held over from Kiss of Brasil, is seasoned and of championship caliber.

Unsurprisingly, Ms. Rossini is fluent in Portuguese and English and employs both in her songs—sometimes in the same song, in fact, as in the languorous, lovestruck beauty of “Paris in Beverly Hills” and in “Why I Smile,” a lush, string-enhanced, gently swinging accounting of a paramour’s irresistible qualities.

Elsewhere the narratives span sensual yearning (viz., “Doce Amor” [“Sweet Love”] with support from understated strings and Brubeck-like piano) to flirty, swaying come-ons (“Tic Tac do Amor”) to a tender, piano-based rapture, “Meu Sonho.” You don’t have to understand a word of Portuguese to feel the sensual reverie consuming her as she luxuriates in “Ipanema Paraíso” (“Ipanema Paradise,” also featured on her first album, Kiss of Brasil), but Peter Roberts, in piano, and Jimmy Roberts on sexy sax turn up the heat with tasty, concise soloing guaranteed to raise the swoon level. In the irregular phrasing of Jon Gilutin’s piano and the song’s jazz harmonies, I swear I hear a debt being paid to Burt Bacharach (in the six-degrees-of-separation department, shall we note a Stan Getz album of Bacharach’s music released in 1968?) in “Que Cor” (“What Color”), whereas the air of mystery infusing the pop-jazz of “Coração de Ouro” (“Golden Heart”), augmented by an atmospheric vibes solo courtesy Marilyn Berglas and subtle, fleet guitar punctuations from Robert Montero, is practically an homage to Mancini.

In short, Bianca Rossini has put it all together. With sonics as rich as its texts and vocals, Vento do Norte touches the heart in a lasting way.


Bianca Rossini:Vento do Norte

Keys and Chords by Patrick Van de Wiele. Belgium

Alhoewel Bianca Rossini geboren werd in Rio de Janeiro, verhuisde ze tijdens haar tienerjaren naar de USA om daar haar studies als artieste voort te zetten. Bianca heeft er al een veelzijdige carrière opzitten, want ze acteerde voor film en tv naast o.a. James Spader, Hector Elizondo, Richard Dreyfuss, Christian Slater, Dick Van Dyke en Dom DeLuise. Ze was te zien in ‘Moon Over Parador’, ‘The Fast One’, ‘Brainiacs’, ‘Monsters’ en ‘Bad Influence’. Daarnaast produceerde en presenteerde ze meer dan honderd afleveringen van de wekelijkse talkshow ‘The Bianca Rossini Show’ in L.A. Ze componeerde muziek voor ‘Chicago Hope’ en ‘The Sentinel’. Ook schreef ze drie boeken: ‘Love in Black and White’, ‘A Brazilian Heart – Rubies, Murder, Love and Other Poems’ en ‘Julia – Confessions of a Brazilian Super Model’. Ze staat bekend voor haar sensuele interpretaties van bossa nova, samba en bolero en staat op de eerste rij van de huidige golf van bossa nova die L.A. overspoelt. In 2011 besprak ik haar debuut ‘Kiss of Brasil’ en was er laaiend enthousiast over. Twee jaar later volgde de EP ‘Meu Amor’. Nu is de derde cd er, en opnieuw ben ik verliefd op die warme Braziliaanse stem, en die bossa nova muziek. De titeltrack opent, en betekent noordenwind. Bianca schreef hem samen met Peter Roberts. Liefde komt aan bod in het zachte ‘Doce Amor’, waarna het eerder opgenomen ‘Ipanema Paraiso’ weerklinkt. Dit is één van de topnummers, ook weer samen met Peter Roberts geschreven. Het zacht wiegende ‘Why I Smile’ is ook mooi, gevolgd door ‘Que Cor’, gebaseerd op een gedicht uit haar boek ‘Love in Black and White’. ‘Tic Tac do Amor’ gaat over flirten, waarna ‘Paris in Beverly Hills’ half in het Portugees en half in het Egels gezongen wordt. ‘Circular’ heb ik ook al eerder gehoord, maar blijft prachtig. ‘Meu Sonho’ is zeer zacht, maar afsluiter ‘Coração de Ouro’ is een swingende, optimistische track. Bianca, ik blijf naar meer verlangen, en blijf verliefd op jouw Braziliaanse flair en bossa nova muziek!

Bianca, again I’m enthralled by your Brazilian flair and bossa nova music! I want more!


Bianca Rossini - Vento do Norte

Jeff Tamarkin, music journalist

"When I conjure up perfect bossa nova in my mind, it sounds very much like Bianca Rossini’s elegant Vento do Norte. Bianca’s vocal delivery is sweet and sunny, the arrangements sway and swing entrancingly, and the songs stay with you long after the final notes fade away. Each track is a gem, luxuriant, gleaming and intimate, imbued with timeless traditions and ingenuity. Vento do Norte is a triumph, Bianca Rossini’s most fully realized and enrapturing release to date.”


Bianca Rossini - Vento do Norte

Steve Hochman, music journalist

"Bianca Rossini’s voice is pure, expressive, playful. Her songs poetic, richly grounded in generations of traditions for which she clearly has deep affection, not to mention expertise and facility. The performances, lithe and life-filled, match all that in every note, every nicely turned phrase. But what stands out most on Vento de Norte is her honesty, both emotional and artistic. At root of this is her deep love for the golden age of the samba and bossa nova of her native Brazil — you don’t cite Ipanema in a song title (the silky “Ipanema Paraiso”) without wanting to evoke that era. But she’s not ignoring or dismissing all the experiments and fusions of those styles that have happened over the years. Rather, she’s renewing the spirit that inspired all that in the first place, and has so profoundly inspired her. She sings of amor (“Doce Amor” — “Sweet Love”) and the flirtatious, tantalizing games we make of it (“Tic Tac do Amor”). But what she really wants is for us to love this music, and all she brings to it, as much as she does. And she succeeds. Delightfully.”


Bianca Rossini – Vento do Norte

Girl Singers by Doug Boynton

(Apaixonada Music/BDM Records) Released 17 July 2017

While I could listen to Bossa Nova all day – for the most part, it would be mood music. It is not typically the kind of music that engenders the “…turn that up, I want to hear this,” kind of behavior for me.

With exceptions. Sergio Mendes and his various “Brazil XX” groups, Astrud Gilberto, and now, Bianca Rossini.

Ten originals, all with lyrics by Ms. Rossini, opening with a strong and insistent title track, “Vento do Norte,” which manages to be both driving and tender all at once. That intimacy is what sets Ms. Rossini apart from many bossa nova vocalists – all emotion, never indifference.

As intimate as a whisper in the ear, and quite possibly as suggestive, as well. Makes me wish I spoke Portuguese.

Favorites include the slyly-titled “Tic Tac Do Amor,” the title track (“Northern Wind”), and the closer – “Coração de Ouro.”

Multi-talented producer-arranger and man of many instruments (piano, bass, strings, whistling!) Peter Roberts contributes heavily to the frame that goes around this talented vocalist. This is a third album for Los Angeles-based Ms. Rossini, which even in its most languid moments, refuses to be relegated to the background.

Very highly recommended.

Bianca Rossini at Vibrato Grill Jazz

International Review of Music by Don Heckman

Bel Air, CA. Bianca Rossini brought a colorful touch of Brazil to Vibrato Grill Jazz..etc. Thursday night. The busy actress/singer/songwriter and author makes rare live performances. But when she does, they showcase all of her many skills, enlivened by the rich, emotional Brazilian roots that are at the heart of her art.

Most of her selections, chosen from Rossini’s growing collection of original songs, were sung with the solid backing of keyboardist Yuko Tamura, guitarist Capital Violao Guitarra, bassist Sezin Ahmet Turkmenoglu and drummer Aaron Rafael Serfaty.

The songs covered everything from captivating bossa novas to ballads and rhythm tunes. Understandably, the often uneven aspects of the material reflected the fact that Rossini works with a range of writing partners. But it was her dark-toned voice and dramatic presentation that brought all the music together into one engaging interpretation after another.

Since Rossini’s performance was so visually oriented, emphasizing her lithe and expressive skills as a dancer and actress, it seemed appropriate to call in our stellar photographer, Faith Frenz, to provide a colorful photo essay of Bianca Rossini in action.


Bianca Rossini-Kiss of Brazil

Memphis Radio Station WUMR by Malvin Massey Jr, general manager

The Jazz Lover Family has an everlasting love for Bianca’s 'Kiss of Brasil.' You can't help but be seduced by the oh-so-sexy lilt of Bianca’s voice. Bianca’s music takes you back to the days of Jobim, Getz & Gilberto, Toquinho, and Vinicius de Moraes when Bossa Nova was king. When listening to “No Silencio da Noite,” “Ipanema Paraiso,” you envision being singled out and serenaded by Bianca, live and in person. It's just magical! Bianca Rossini's 'Kiss of Brasil' will live for a very long time."


Bianca Rossini-Meu Amor

Jeff Tamarkin, music journalist

“Honest, captivating and original—Meu Amor is a keeper! In a field as overpopulated as Brazilian jazz, the only way to make an impression is with originality. Bianca Rossini is an original. On Meu Amor, her latest CD, the Rio-born, Los Angeles-based Bianca’s captivating, self-penned compositions and stunning vocal performances resonate long after the first listen. Bianca’s honeyed, sensual voice is golden: smooth yet commanding, classic but cutting-edge. The arrangements, production and musicianship are all first-rate—a perfect match for Bianca’s honest, velvety, assured delivery. Like Kiss of Brasil before it, Meu Amor is a keeper, an exciting new work from an artist steeped in classicism but with an ear toward the future. I can’t get enough of this music!”

Nouvel EP de quatre titres pour cette chanteuse découverte avec l’album « Kiss of Brazil » (Dans la continuité de ses premiers enregistrements, Bianca continue son exploration des musiques brésiliennes en mâtinant le tout d’arrangements lounge. Ce nouvel effort est moins jazzy que le précédent et plus bossa, plus acoustique. L’ensemble swingue tranquillement, c’est relax (« Passo a passo »). Les notes de piano s’envolent avec légèreté (« Bem Querer »), les guitares acoustiques assurent les rythmes dans un swing relâché et les percussions apportent ce qu’il faut de peps (« Faxineira », la préférée de votre serviteur). La voix de Bianca est magnifique, suave à souhait. L’entendre susurrer « Meu Amor » dans un râle sexy procure son petit effet, loin d’être désagréable à l’auditeur. D’un romantisme et d’un lyrisme exacerbé, ce chouette petit EP s’écoute comme un rayon de soleil au cœur de l’hiver.

"What a treat to be entertained by the sultry and alluring voice of Bianca Rossini once again. Her new EP Meu Amor is a continuation of the beguiling sound that we experienced with her last outing. So, as that one was a "Kiss of Brasil," Meu Amor is the embrace. You feel the subtle excitement of romantic nights in a Brazilian breeze. Meu Amor - listen and enjoy!”


Bianca Rossini: Kiss of Brasil

Jazz Weekly by George W. Harris

Got a heart for the classic bossa nova sound of Jobim and Gilberto? I think that singer/songwriter Bianca Rossini got the baton passed to her as she delivers some of the best fresh samba sounds around. She’s got a breathy yet husky voice, and comes across like a Brazilian version of Julie London: cozy and intimate moods abound, and before you know it you’re caught up in the allure of the sensuality.

Keyboardist Peter Roberts produced the disc, and he uses a mix and match of standard piano/bass/drums along with cameos of strings, percussion, tenor sax and even whistling. Jimmy Roberts’ tenor sax floats like a fog on Rossini’s luscious and delicious delivery on “Ipanema Paraiso,” while strings provide silk drapes for Rossini to saunter around on the enticing “Nos Dois” and “O Tempo Vai Contar.” Other tunes like “Circular” have a bit more of a celebratory and pop feel, but she gets you right back to the mood to be woo-ed on “No Silencio da Noite”. All of the songs except the closing “Corazon de Oro” are in Portuguese, but if you need a translator for these lyrics, you’re kind of missing the point. Keep your ears open for this one. Whew!


Bianca Rossini-Kiss of Brasil CD

Jazz Times By Wilbert Sostre

Instead of choosing the safe path of recording brazilian classic songs, all compositions on Bianca Rossini debut album, Kiss of Brasil are originals, a bold move for this brazilian native living in California. But as it turns out, Rossini is not just a good singer, she is a talented songwriter, so the result is an album with a delicate sound and romantic, sometimes sexy lyrics.

Most of the music were composed by the guitarrist Patrick Lockwood and by the various pianists on the abum, Peter Roberts, Marilyn Berglas, Steve Rawlins and Ken Hirsch, The songs range in style from the MPB sounds (Musica Popular Brasileira) of "Circular" to the elegant Bossa Nova "Ipanema Paraiso", an homage to Ipanema in Rio de Janeiro.

On Ipanema Paraiso, Rossini sensual vocals interlace beautifully with Jimmy Roberts saxophone.

Rossini playful phrasing captivates and seduces the listener in the bossas "Perfume de Verao", "Coracao de Oro" and "Tarde em Copacabana", another place in Rio that has inspired lots of songs.

Kiss of Brasil also includes the contagious rhythms of the samba "Verdadeiro Amor" and three beautiful ballads, "Nos Dois", "NoSilencio da Noite" and "Primeiro de Dezembro."

Tracks: Ipanema Paraiso, O Tempo Vai Contar, Nos Dois, Tarde em Copacabana, Verdadeiro Amor, No Silencio da Noite, Circular, Primeiro de Dezembro, Perfume de Verao, Corazon de Oro

Bianca Rossini: Meu Amor

Jazz Weekly by George W. Harris

I recently reviewed Brazilian vocalist and composer Bianca Rossini’s premier cd Kiss of Brazil and her concert performance in LA. Intrigued by the sounds and melodies, I went back and found this follow up ep, which was released a couple of years ago when she was supposedly testing the waters for future projects. There are only four songs, all written by the singer, and each one is like a single sample of a potato chip; you want more!

The support is more modest and lest “produced” than her first full release, and it actually works better, with initimate guitars by Larry Koonse, Doug MacDonald or Grecco Burrato, the cavaquinho strummed by Burrato, percussion provided by Cassio Duarte or Sandro Feliciano, and keyboards at the hands of Dana Kaproff. Her voice on the alluringly sensual “Meu Amor’ and lithe “Passo a Passo” is inviting and melodic, putting wonderful feeling into the lyrics that I have no interest in translating. Sing to me!

“Bem Querer” and “Faxineira” complete the short, tempting and sweet session, which begs to be put on her next full length release to make the night of magic last just that much longer. Old school bossa fans should flock to this temptress!

My Head is a Jukebox's by Regis Gaudin. France

Bianca Rossini est une jeune artiste aux talents multiples, actrice, auteur de trois livres, elle fut également présentatrice de son propre talk-show à Los Angeles. « Kiss of Brazil » est son premier album, dont elle a écrit toutes les paroles en portugais et composé trois musiques. Née à Rio de Janeiro, Bianca, avait à cœur sur cet effort inaugural de rendre hommage à la musique de son pays natal en chantant dans sa langue maternelle. Beaucoup moins funky et cru qu’un Seu Jorge, par exemple, Bianca préfère mélanger les rythmes brésiliens à des ambiances jazz cool. En ce sens l’album serait à rapprocher des collaborations entre Stan Getz et Joao Gilberto. Il en résulte un disque apaisé et mélodique qui, dans ses meilleurs moments, s’écoule lentement comme une caresse. A écouter au soleil couchant en sirotant un cocktail. Un petit soleil musical même au cœur de l’hiver.

She has co-written with Brazil's leading composer and singer Sergio Santos, Claudio Nucci and Andre Mehmari. In the LA area, Bianca has also written with Dana Kaproff, Jon Gilutin, Don Heckman and Glenn Scott Lacey. Bianca has stopped counting after writing more than 350 songs in less than 2 years!


Em Tempo: Bianca Rossini/Kiss of Brasil

Musa Musica by Paul Constantinides

Bianca Rossini, cantora brasileira radicada na California (USA), em seu debute no mundo da musica traz uma grata surpresa: Voz, bossa e poesia. A voz quente de Bianca traz a imagem do Rio anos 50 no retrovisor e aponta para uma estrada jazzística, no interior o ar intimista reconfortante. Kiss of Brasil é um belo momento musical do Brasil, fora do Brasil, feito com delicadeza e sabores.


Bianca Rossini-Kiss of Brasil

Keys and Chords by Patrick Van de Wiele. Belgium

Een nieuwe bossa nova klassieker in wording.

Alhoewel Bianca Rossini geboren werd in Rio de Janeiro, verhuisde ze tijdens haar tienerjaren naar de USA om daar haar studies als artieste voort te zetten. Bianca heeft er al een veelzijdige carrière opzitten, want ze acteerde voor film en Tv naast o.a. James Spader, Hector Elizondo, Richard Dreyfuss, Christian Slater, Dick Van Dyke en Dom DeLuise. Ze was te zien in ‘Moon Over Parador’, ‘The Fast One’, ‘Brainiacs’, ‘Monsters’ en ‘Bad Influence’. Daarnaast produceerde en presenteerde ze meer dan honderd afleveringen van de wekelijkse talkshow ‘The Bianca Rossini Show’ in L.A. Ze componeerde muziek voor ‘Chicago Hope’ en ‘The Sentinel’. Ook schreef ze drie boeken: ‘Love in Black and White’, ‘A Brazilian Heart – Rubies, Murder, Love and Other Poems’ en ‘Julia – Confessions of a Brazilian Super Model’. Ze staat bekend voor haar sensuele interpretaties van bossa nova, samba en bolero en staat op de eerste rij van de huidige golf van bossa nova die L.A. overspoelt. Haar debuut bevat allemaal originele songs, in een productie van Peter Roberts, en geschreven samen met Amerikaanse en Braziliaanse componisten zoals Marilyn Berglas, Harvey Mason, Peter Roberts, Ken Hirsch, Steve Rawlins en Patrick Lockwood. Bij te beluisteren van ‘Ipanema Paraiso’ denk ik onmiddellijk terug aan Jobim’s klassieker over datzelfde strand. Bianca zingt sensueel en in het Portugees. Romantiek is niet uit de lucht en de songs getuigen van passie. Zangeres Flora Purim zei over haar: "I was enchanted by Bianca the first time I heard her sing, and now after listening to her album Kiss of Brasil , I'm as impressed with her song writing as I am with her singing." ‘O Tempo vai Contar’ is wat trager, maar het is duidelijk dat dit liedjes zijn die de vergelijking met de grondleggers van de bossa nova, Antonio Carlos Jobim en João Gilberto, kunnen doorstaan. Je hoeft echt geen Portugees te begrijpen om meegesleurd te worden door deze muziek. ‘Nós Dois’ is al even mooi, gevolgd door het ietwat snellere ‘Tarde em Copacabana’. Dans mee op ‘Verdadeiro Amor’ of hou het ingetogen op ‘No Silêncio da Noite’. ‘Circular’ is wat uitbundiger, gevolgd door het romantische ‘Primeiro de Dezembro’. En

‘Perfume de Verão’ vervolgt in hetzelfde straatje, waarna ‘Corazón de Oro’ afsluit met Engelse tekst. Het lijdt geen twijfel, dit zijn hits in wording!

“Bianca, I’m in love with your voice and sensual songs! You transport me to that magical country of Brasil on the wings of your heavenly songs. I’m believe I’m in bossa nova heaven!”

Bianca Rossini's "Kiss of Brazil"

Galina Sobolev, celebrity fashion designer & tv personality finalist on the Bravo hit show "Launch my Line"

Hi everyone!
As you may or may not know, I absolutely LOVE music. Music is so creative and inspiring... have you seen the playlist I posted back in September? Love all of these songs!!

Most recently, I am in love with Bianca Rossini’s new album, Kiss of Brazil. Every song is so sensual and moving... really amazing, passionate music! Listening to this album made me feel like I was instantly transported to the sandy shores of Ipanema, even though in reality I was in the car with the kids driving to snow covered Mammoth. Ha!

Bianca’s music has so much sensual power, it will capture you from the first song to the last, which - incidentally - is the only one she sings in English! I am such a fan of Bianca’s music, in case you couldn’t tell, and I love that she’s a devoted fan of Single! She even thanked me on her CD. Wow, what an honor!!! I was so moved and touched, as I have never ever had my name on an album under the “Iist of people I’d like to thank.” I mean, who has??

I’m off to go listen to “Kiss of Brazil" for the countless time, I am totally addicted :-)

Check out Bianca’s Facebook page, and be sure to buy the CD on either iTunes or Amazon!!
Xo, Galina (AKA the Girl from Ipanema haha)
