We gave it a B+

On Neruda, Souza expands her expressive range to achieve distinct new beauty. The Grammy-nominated Brazilian singer sets English translations of Pablo Neruda’s poems to her own stately, gently swinging compositions, accompanied by Venezuelan-born pianist Edward Simon. Souza adds percussion here and there, but the focus remains on her reedy alto, tracing a landscape of emotion that knows no boundaries.
