Title: Our Silent World
Catalogue Number: No catalogue number
Review Format: CD
Release Year: 2006
The Camerouns are a family group that have achieved some success in Brazilian popular music. This is smooth jazz in the bossa nova style. BluesBunny knows many people who like that sort of thing and they will be satisfied with this release.
Ana Cameroun's vocal style hints that she would make an excellent torch singer given the right material and the guitar work of Aldemir Cameroun is noteworthy too. Best tracks are "Bosso Mundo Mudo" and "Acordei", both of which feature fine contributions from the aforementioned Aldemir. Whilst he was listening to this album, BluesBunny was reminded of the film director Jess Franco and his alternative musical career. The Camerouns and Jess Franco would certainly hit it off.
It has to be said that this album is impeccably performed. However, it is so laid back that it is horizontal. Nothing really wrong with it but nothing that really grabs your attention either.
