Different idioms of Brazilian music come to life in Alexandra Jackson’s contemporary delivery of eighteen (18) songs on “ALEXANDRA JACKSON: LEGACY & ALCHEMY". Each song has an in-depth story as the backdrop -- which in essence relaunches the rich music legacy of the country as a contemporary force.
Recorded over 3 years in Rio de Janeiro, Los Angeles, Atlanta, London, New York, and Chicago, the project was produced by Robert Hebert and Larry Williams.
“There’s a huge melting pot of music in our world today,” says Alexandra Jackson. “My album offers the opportunity for people to step outside the box. It’s not just jazz, not the blues, not soul, not bossa nova, not samba, but it’s a mix of them all.”
In speaking about the recording of the project ... Ms. Jackson says: “This experience was poignant and quite meaningful to me. These songs and the stories behind each is why I’m so passionate about this project. I’m hoping to take this music and transport it to reach millions of people. Brazil’s music deserves that and more.”
