Singer Marta Topferova's debut album "Sueno Verde" (Green Dream) is a collection of new, beautiful melodies arranged with Caribbean rhythms in an acoustic setting featuring guitar, bass, latin percussion, French horn, cello, violin, flute, trombone & flugelhorn. This is a dreamy, poetic record.

Marta Topferova’s debut recording Sueño Verde- Ten songs co-written/produced with longtime collaborator and guitarist Enrique Lopez along with producer Joe Boyd - Sueño Verde is an emotionally seductive, acoustic fusion of son-bolero-samba swerves and romantic avant poetry dipped in saudade.

Call it the Pan-Latino cosmopolitan blues. Topferova and Lopez have enlisted an impressive band of A-list Latin, jazz and neo-classical musicians -- Ira Coleman, bass; Adam Cruz, tambora, snare drum, conga, cymbals, bell; Chris Komer, French horn; Erik Friedlander, cello; Jason Jackson, trombone; Erik Jekabson, flugelhorn, Jenny Scheinman, violin and Connie Grossman, flute -- to make their dream sound a reality. That said, it's Topferova alone who gives these songs blood and life. Blessed with a dusky contralto, a jazzman's ability to mood swing behind-in-front-on-the beat, and a Latin diva's sensual-emotional intuition, Topferova is really the only vocalist on the scene today capable of putting this music across. The result: uniquely original songs ranging from airy bossa-son-reggae bops ("Pulso De Nueva York", "Vuelo De Ciguena") to crazysexycool, tango-silky mambos ("Sueno Verde", "Obsesionada") to son-jazzy cha-cha-chas ("Mi Poema", "Esperanza") and points both tangential and in between.
