about

With a velveteen voice, charmingly straightforward delivery, and nuanced rhythmic sensibilities, versatile singer Maria Schafer returns from a full-time tour on the road with the world famous Glenn Miller Orchestra to present her debut album, "To Know Love..."

This beautifully crafted presentation from Schafer features her modern arrangements of jazz standards and Brazilian tunes with a core guitar trio and expands and contracts the instrumentation from there. In the most sparse charts, intimate tracks feature Schafer's voice with solely guitar or bass, moving on to a hauntingly nostalgic "In Summer" with bass and drums, and finally assuming the full guitar trio with trumpet solos for the closer. The album presents a wide range of moods and concepts for the casual listener as well as the avid jazz lover, all while highlighting the immaculately designed vocal talents of Schafer and her trio headed by Los Angeles guitarist, Shane Savala.

Track Name: Estrada Branca
Estrada branca, lua branca, noite alta, tua falta
Caminhando, caminhando, caminhando, ao lado meu.
Uma saudade, uma vontade, tão doída, de uma vida
Vida que morreu.

Estrada passarada, noite clara
Meu caminho é tão sozinho, tão sozinho a percorrer
Que mesmo andando para a frente
Olhando a lua tristemente
Quanto mais ando, mais estou perto de você.

Se em vez de noite fosse dia, e o sol brilhasse é a poesia
E em vez de triste, fosse alegre de partir.
Se em vez de eu ver só minha sombra nessa estrada,
Eu visse ao longo dessa estrada, uma outra sombra a me seguir

Mas a verdade é que a cidade ficou longe
Ficou longe na cidade, se deixou meu bem-querer.
Eu vou sozinho sem carinho
Vou caminhando meu caminho
Vou caminhando com vontade de morrer.
