The title is taken from Leonard Cohen's 2006 book of poetry, and Souza has adapted four Cohen poems for her album, including "Nightingale" for the track "Night Song." "The supporting instrumentation here has ele­gant simplicity. It's Souza's own light percussion with Scott Colley's bass and Chico Pinheiro's guitar, musicians who understand how to cushion a lyric's starkness or structure a song's flow. But the key to this album is Souza's impressionistic composing for emotional effect…The Book Of Longing's closing mes­sage is that longing doesn't have to overwhelm us. And with Souza's delicate touch, it doesn't. This is the most graceful album yet from a songwriter who knows how to make rare and common sentiments into music of deep feeling." (Michelle Mercer, NPR, 8.29.2018) Luciana Souza – voice, percussion Scott Colley – bass Chico Pinheiro – guitar http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=336405 Jazz Standard Jazz Standard
