2007 release. Meu Samba Torto features a stellar line-up of Brazilian musicians including Clara Moreno's mother, the legendary Brazilian singer-songwriter Joyce, and the celebrated songwriter and guitarist Celso Fonseca. Meu Samba Torto features two new compositions written especially for Clara, by Joyce ("Sabe Quem"), and Celso Fonseca ("Litorânea"). There are also interpretations of classic bossa nova tracks such as "Moça Flor", originally recorded by the Tamba Trio, "Vem Morena Vem", from Jorge Ben's debut album, and "Morena Boca de Ouro", made famous by João Gilberto. Meu Samba Torto also features a version of "Mon Manege a Moi", originally recorded by the French singer Edith Piaf, and a beautiful cover of the American jazz standard "Tenderly". Clara Moreno on the album: "In Brazil, we call a person from Rio de Janeiro a 'Carioca', and on this album I have tried to share this feeling of what it is like to be a 'Carioca' with the listener. I took inspiration from '60s bossa nova - the cornerstone of modern Brazilian music - and created a contemporary view of Brazilian music that fans all over the world can enjoy. I wanted to create a warm, intimate vibe the listener can connect with, so they can get a sense of what it is like to be a 'Carioca'."
