Compositions by Myriam Alter

Alter's new album, "Where Is There", just starts off where her previous album, "If", ended.
"The most important thing when I fix a band is the general sound I want to get," says Myriam Alter. "This helps me to decide which instruments I want. Then I look for the best musicians to play my music."
This time her choice was Jaques Morelenbaum, the great Brazilian cello player who so beautifully combines an authentic samba feeling with a chamber music's intimacy. A living legend in MPB, Morelenbaum has worked with such as Marisa Monte, Carlinhos Brown, Caetano Veloso, Egberto Gismonti and many others. His rich tone and improvisational talent, assisted by Ruocco's warm clarinet and Bonafede's tasteful piano voicings, generated an album that makes one's dreams fly away on Myriam Alter's heartfelt melodies and moving rhythms.
