Review: Easy-flowing vocals and lyrics with literate depth fuel composer John Finbury’s collaboration with Brazilian-born vocalist de Freitas and an excellent small band on this jazzy EP The first thing that jumps out from Sorte! is de Freitas’s emotional melodicism. You don’t need to understand Portuguese to absorb it. When you do dive into the surprising lyrics (there are English translations in the CD booklet) you find they take a intellectual approach to spirituality. Sunny musicianship backs up de Freitas’s clean, unprepossessing vocals.
