The new album from Portuguese fado singer Carminho, Portuguesa, now available in the US on CD and vinyl on Nonesuch Records, available here; the self-produced record was released to critical acclaim earlier this year. You can take a quick look inside the vinyl here:

In celebration of its US release, Carminho returns to the US for the first time since 2019 with dates beginning October 6 in Boston and including shows across North America including NJ, California, Chicago, Montreal, Vancouver, and Toronto; see below for details or visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

The sixth album of Carminho’s career, Portuguesa features fourteen compositions, including several of her own songs as well as those of other writers, including traditional fado songs, through which she explores various combinations within the canons, reimagining the form.

The artist says of her album: “The album Portuguesa began to take shape in 2019 and its genesis has the same basis as all the previous ones: A permanent fascination with fado, for its inexhaustible paths and possibilities within the same matrix, and recognizing in it the most natural language to express myself. For me, fado is a language more than a message, a path more than a destination.

She continues, “But if on the previous album I explored the most personal and intuitive experience I had with my family, listening to my mother sing, in fado houses, meeting and learning from the best interpreters, on this last one I dedicated myself to researching the composition and poetry, daring to compose original traditional fados and to delve into technical and historical issues of building a repertoire.”

    The original cast album of Adam Guettel’s Broadway musical Days of Wine and Roses, with a book by Craig Lucas, starring Kelli O’Hara and Brian d’Arcy James, is now available on CD, following its recent digital release. “Repeated listenings compound the amazement,” the New York Times says of Guettel’s work, which “has always offered that kind of challenge—initially leaving a feeling of: Beautiful, but wait, I need to hear it again—and those up for it have a way of coming away shining like Moses down from the Mount. The new score has the same effect.” Guettel, O'Hara, and d'Arcy James—all of whom have been nominated for Tony Awards for Days of Wine and Roses—will sign copies of the CD at the Drama Book Shop in NYC this Wednesday, May 22.
