Beautiful rendition of Ivan Lin’s & Vitor Martins song Começar de Novo (Starting Over) with english lyrics by Alan and Marilyn Bergman that would become “The Island”.
As with everything “Sassy” sang she did it with pure relentless emotion, her passion came pouring through out of this piece the way seduction and romance was meant to be.
Many have played this Joaquín Rodrigo composition but in my opinion this group of musicians interpreted it into a stunning Masterpiece that no one else will ever touch.
