A Brazilian based album, filled with classic Bossa Nova standards written by Brazilian composers, including songs composed by the legendary Antonio Carlos Jobim, with the exception of two originals, “Bossa Nova Casanova”, written by Deborah and the title song, “I Remember Rio”, written by guitarist/song writer, Ed Finney. Deborah’s debut album is off the beaten path of a typical jazz album, along with a sophisticated style that’s relaxing, entertaining and may have you swaying from side to side.
