"Kuestionnaire: Con Brio"

"Upon first listening to Con Brio, I let out a deep sigh of relief. No longer do up-and-coming soul bands over-polish their sound with unnecessary synth and cartoonish gloss. Steeped within the gilded and gritty sounds of soul and funk, this five-piece San Francisco collective have been starting to electrify fans, disc jockeys, critics, record collectors, and bloggers the world-over with their authentic, heart-felt sound. The authenticity clearly demonstrated on the band’s new album, From The Hip. Released July 20th, 2010, the album drips with a warmth and spontaneity rarely found since the golden days of smokefilled jazz clubs. Lead vocalist Xandra’s voice is strong and evokes at once the raw power of influential soul singers and the melodic command of gospel vocalists. From the lush jazz-soul fanfare that ushers in Jimi’s Song, to the unapologetic You Fuckers, the band dances seamlessly through both the most crafted and simple arrangements with subtlety and discipline. But most of all, Con Brio’s From The Hip is an achievement and a testament to authentic soul with no strings attached." - Kata Rokkar

"Xandra Corpora's vocals are stunning....The band, tight as a bungee cord, is a funky, acoustic, jazz/blues casserole. That's right-casserole. What's more, they kill it live." - Phil Lang
