Carwyn Ellis & Rio 18 - Yn Rio (Légère Recordings – LEGO 23 - Germany 2021)
Beautiful record with all the best elements of MPB as a genre (pretty much inspired by Arthur Verocai's seminal album & Jorge Ben) with the equally stunning vocals of Welsh singer Carwyn Ellis toped by superb strings & horns arrangement performed by The BBC National Orchestra Of Wales . The whole album is superb from start to finish with the Jorge Ben style "Olé"."Cariad, Cariad", "Y Ferch Ar Y Cei" is deep bossa with delicate female vocal. "Ynys Aur" is flirting with Exotica. This has been on heavy rotation at our office since we received it. Highly Recommended.
