“Track 1 This past month all eyes have been on Brazil with the World Cup. but my ears have been enjoying a Carnival of sound since the release of Tia Carroll’s newest CD entitled, Brazil Sessions. The Northern Californian went to the Southern Hemisphere to record some southern soul music with some of the greatest blues musicians on any continent, The Igor Prado Band. Tia Carroll is a Bay Area revelation who first hit my ears when her soulful voice came out of my speakers on the Igor Prado Band’s 2012 outstanding release entitled The Blues and Soul Sessions. Three of the eleven tracks from this release appeared on The Blues and Soul Sessions and are marvelous I went with a tune from one of the sessions that was recorded this past spring. It is Tia’s take on the Al Green classic Love and Happiness which was co-written by the guitarist on that session, Mabon Lewis “Teenie” Hodges who passed away this past June 22nd.”
