Tangerine Blue is a 13-course feast of sweet and savory Pan-American tunes.  From bittersweet ballads to creamy love calls, from saucy numbers to tropical confections, this richly varied buffet is bound to surprise and delight.  Sara's powerful, expressive voice and her masterful, all-acoustic band of jazz and Brazilian musicians create a rich, organic sound reminiscent of days past.
