After her musical journeys deep into the Japanese (Haiku) and Lusitanian (Sobremesa) sounds, this time Anna Maria Jopek sings in Polish with the Cubans. Minione brings back to life the most charming pre-war Polish tangos. AMJ sings with one of the greatest improvising pianist of our times, fantastic Gonzalo Rubalcaba and his jazz trio. Among hundreds of old tangos and boleros, both leading musicians chose the songs that inspired them most, such as: Rebeca or Your Lips Lie. Those pieces are a bridge between the world of the thirties of the past century and present vocal music. They also merge various cultures: Polish, Cuban, Jewish, Argentinian and American. "When I work with artists who come from musical backgrounds different to mine, I'm always delighted by their diversity. Everything that they bring in to the recording enriches me spiritually. I'm amazed of the immensity of beauty and truth on the crossroads of cultures and human sensibility. Music is the language of unity" - says AMJ. "Working on those old tangos was pure magic. Rarely can you come across the material of such charm, intense melancholy, mystery and eroticism. Recording with Gonzalo was sheer mysticism. The presence of 'being' in every note teaches you to be carefully attentive and humble." Minione is arranged and produced by Gonzalo Rubalcaba. The highest audiophile sound quality of the recording is the merit of the Grammy Award winner Carlos Alvarez, made in the legendary Hit Factory Criteria Miami.
