Description
(Nominated for the 2013 Best Latin Jazz Album Grammy Award) The title of Concha Buika's latest album translates to "the longest night." Born to African parents, political exiles who emigrated to the Spanish island of Mallorca, Buika grew up in the only black family in a mainly Roma neighborhood. "Somehow all of those influences combined to create a sound that is universal, yet completely her own" observed host Michelle Martin in a profile of Buika on NPR. To make things even harder for the young girl, her father left when she was nine. Filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar has featured Buika's Piaf-like vocals in several of his films, saying that she "only knows how to sing with her heart ripped apart."

"Now relocated to Miami, she's clearly reaching for a pan-American audience on this sixth album. It's an eclectic affair, taking her acrobatic flamenco vocals into a more jazz-flavoured zone and mixing her songs with covers of Jacques Brel and Abbey Lincoln. A classy cast includes Pat Metheny on the slow 'No Lo Se,' which proves the most aching excursion; mostly, Buika bustles, turning even Billie Holiday's bittersweet 'Don't Explain' into a brisk flamenco fusion. It's as sophisticated as its sleek cover shot."—The Observer
