The inventive, exciting and passionate singer Cristina Morrison has released Impredecible: Voces De Mujer, (Unpredictable: women voices), an impressive re-interpretation of classic Latin American standards featuring magical pairings of vocal duets with Latin jazz arrangements by Misha Piatigorsky.

Known as the Baroness, Cristina Morrison is a beautiful, talented and versatile singer, songwriter, actress and producer. She has a dark and smoky voice, sings in several languages, and has always had an equal feeling for songs from her mother's homeland of Ecuador and American jazz. While she had previously made some impressive recordings, like Baronesa which was nominated for two Independent Music Awards in 2016, Impredecible: Voces De Mujer is a homage to
her Latin roots and is quite special.

For her third record, Cristina's frequent collaborator pianist Misha Piatigorsky re-imagined and arranged 11 standards from the Latin American Songbook, giving them the rhythms and feel of modern Latin jazz. Cristina invited five illustrious female singers to join her on vocal duets which brought out the emotional intensity of the lyrics and resulted in mutually inspired performances.
