"Wow. Just wow. Most other singers should just give up now." The Mail on Sunday says that in 1992, Ingénue "seemed like an elegant set of timeless songs about unrequited love. Today it stands as a monument on the road to equal rights." "lang is a peerless communicator of feeling and emotion," says musicOMH, " a class act and one of the greatest singers currently at work in any genre." The Arts Desk says: "Her voice has withstood the years magnificently, and its purity and power soared."

    Portuguese fado singer Carminho's album Maria is due in the US on September 27 via Nonesuch Records. Its title is her given first name and a name in Portugal that's both traditional and a popular choice among contemporary young parents, as fado is both part of a tradition and belongs to today's world. Carminho, who wrote many of the lyrics and songs and produced the record herself, considers it a dialogue between herself and two fado singers who blazed a trail for her: Beatriz da Conceição and Teresa Siqueira (her mother). London Jazz News calls it "a beautifully realized, remarkably varied yet uniformly gorgeous album." Pre-order to download the tracks "O Menino e a Cidade" and "Estrela" now.
