about

Highlights of the trio’s 2009 Australian Tour teaming Diana Clark’s warm, intimate English/Portuguese vocals & Doug de Vries’ eloquent, sparkling 7-string guitar with Stephen Grant’s masterfully understated accordion. Bossa nova, Samba, Milton Nascimento, Baden Powell, Guinga & more...

“Diana’s voice…seductive & engaging…with de Vries improvising, using an impressive finger-style technique on 7 string guitar…also complementing Di’s voice by singing counterpoint melodies while Grant uplifted the music further still with his transcendental accompanying…truly a night of splendour from three of this country’s finest musicians.” President Albury-Wodonga Jazz Society

Track Name: Cry No More (Canto de Ossanha)
It won't make it better, no way
You can't have control over it.
It won't make it better, no way
You don't have control over it
Your grandmother soon came to learn to honour the lives that have been
Your grandmother wants you to learn to mourn and to keep on living
Your mother she feels just the same when she has a loss or a grief
Your mother feels the same when she has been treated badly

Cry, cry, cry cry no more
Cry, cry cry, cry regret
Cry, cry cry, cry no more
Try, try, try now forget

Take a look around the world - there is so much more to see
You can honour what is gone and be free
Yes, it's your right to be alive, laughing living in each day
There's a chance each road you take

Your grandfather soon came to learn to honour the lives that have been
Your grandfather wants you to learn to mourn and to keep on loving
Your father he feels just the same whenever he makes a mistake
Your father feels the same whenever he carries heartache

Cry, cry, cry cry no more
Cry, cry cry, cry regret
Cry, cry cry, cry no more
Try, try, try now forget

Take a look around the world - there is so much more to do
You can honour what is gone and be true
Yes, it's your right to be alive, laughing breathing in each day
There's a chance each road you take
Track Name: Corcovado (Quiet Nights)
Portuguese and English
Track Name: 3 Shadows of Blue
She dances beside the firelight
Her elegance is sheathed in dust tonight
Shekere, silk and skin...
Riding the sound she spins around and draws you in

Awakening you from descending into darkness and shades of blue
Distillation of spirit she's blending stronger than you're accustomed to
The aching that seems never ending ascends from you right on cue
Awakening you from descending into
3 Shadows of blue...
Track Name: Mama Africa
Mama Africa, been giving all her life in groove and rhythm
We're taking everything she's given
Every season
Through war and drought her tears renew the tempo of Bahia,
People got to hear!
Track Name: Cais (Quay)
For those who want to set themselves free
I invent a quay
I invent more than the solitude allows me
I invent the love and well know the pain of finding it

If I want to be happy
I invent a sea
I invent a dreamer in me
For those who want to follow me
I want more

I follow the path that I always wanted to
And I have a sailboat ready to depart
I invent a quay
And I know the right time
To launch myself from it
Track Name: Breathe into Time
It's early evening as the sun goes down
I'm walking thus red earth alone
I get the feeling there are spirits around
And I'm not really on my own
It's reassuring to sense something out there
With a wisdom infinite
Clearing my mind of fear I breathe into time
And I know that I'll be fine
Breathe into time

And when you see me you will know my smile
Like we've been hand in hand before
We might deny it for a little while
But we will meet again for sure
Anticipation keeps me poised for the ride
As our lives are meant to be aligned
One can't resist the pull that fate has designed
And you know that I'll be kind
Breathe into time

We face the morning dew together now
There's bird call right outside the door
And all the challenges we handle somehow
Though sometimes hell seeps through the floor
We know in nature there is balance divine
We remind ourselves time after time
Instinctively there's goodness in human kind
And we know that we'll be fine
Breathe into Time
Track Name: Manha de Carnaval (Black Orfeus) live
Morning, such a nice morning
Of a happy day that has begun
The sun has risen into the sky
And shone in every heart

After this happy day
I don't know if another will come
And our tomorrow
After all such a beautiful tomorrow of Carnival
My heart sings
Joy has returned - so happy
The morning of this love

Morning, such a morning
In life there's a new song
Singing only of your eyes
Your smile and your hands,
For there has to be a day when you come

From the strings of my guitar
Which seek only your love
Comes a voice to speak
Of the kisses lost in your lips

My heart sings
Joy has returned - so happy
the morning of this love!
