L.A.-based neo-soul singer Sy Smith is a reliably smooth stylist, sure, but better yet a thrillingly adventurous vocal interpreter who boasts a soprano range up all the way to the “whistle” register. Also a composer-producer who’s written songs for Carlos Santana, Brand New Heavies, Terry Lewis and many others, Smith has been raising the future-soul bar in the worlds of underground R&B, go-go, funk and electrified jazz for several years now, with four great solo albums including 2012’s delicious downtempo-electronic feast, Fast and Curious, produced by visionary jazzbo DJ Mark de Clive-Lowe. Uruguayan guitarist Leonardo Amuedo is a supremely gifted stringbender best known for his collaborations with MPB (música popular brasileira) singer-composer Ivan Lins and Uruguayan heavyweights such as Julio Frade, Hugo and Osvaldo Fattoruso, Urbano Moraes and Mariana Ingold.
