With 55 years in showbiz and more than 30 albums to her name, Leny Andrade is a diva in the traditional sense of the word, a fact underlined by the presence of Tony Bennet and Liza Minnelli at her last show in Washington, where the legendary crooners presented the singer with a silver plate pronouncing her 'The Voice of the Americas'. High praise indeed, and making her three-night appearance in the intimate confines of the Espaço Johnny Alf in Tijuca all the more special. Considered by many to be Brazil's greatest samba-jazz singer of all time, she became a face on the bossa scene in Copacabana's notorious Beco das Garrafas (where residents above the clubs would throw bottles at the partying crowds beneath their windows) whilst still a teenager, and now plies her trade in jazz festivals and clubs around the world.
