flor

...you hear the voice — that voice, 
one of the most dreamily mellifluous timbres in jazz — 
is instantly recognizable. 

Gretchen Parlato, the Grammy-nominated composer and vocalist, 
and one of the most imaginative and inspiring artists on the scene, is back. 

And oh, how we’ve missed her. 

...her brilliant new Brazilian-flavoured album on Edition is her best yet.

5 STARS ***** 
"One of the best vocal jazz albums of recent years —  
Gretchen Parlato returns with a masterful album in which she expresses the balance between refinement, lyricism and intact drive...” 

— Angelo Leonardi, All About Jazz 


5 STARS ***** 
"The birds are singing, the outside world is a jungle, but we have the best news of 2021: Gretchen Parlato is back.”
 —Jazz News Revue Ecletique

"Flor is a masterpiece...  a welcome and profound return.   

Parlato and her collaborators dig under and through stylistic and genre conventions, then emerge with a jazz language of their own that embraces the world's sounds and emotions, and translates them flawlessly with warmth, intimacy, poetry, and humor."   

—Thom Jurek, AllMusic
