about

This is Gabriela's first studio album.
"Senses" is a conceptual album in which the artist's intention is to remember through songs twelve unforgettable moments of her own lifetime. Starting by her childhood and finishing in the way she looks at life today, "Senses" is a different approach to jazz standards and the American songbook, with the aim of reaching emotions and those feelings that hide in de depth of every soul.

Track Name: Zip-a-dee-doo-dah (Allie Wrubel/Ray Gilbert)
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
My, oh my, what a wonderful day!
Plenty of sunshine heading my way
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay

Mister Bluebird on my shoulder
It's the truth, it's actch'll
Ev'rything is satisfactch'll

Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
Wonderful feeling, wonderful day!
Track Name: Lullaby of the leaves (Bernice Petkere/Joe Young)
Cradle me where Southern skies
Can watch me with a million eyes
Sing me to sleep
Lullaby of the leaves

Cover me with Heaven's blue
And let me dream a dream or two
Sing me to sleep
Lullaby of the leaves

I'm breezing along, along with the breeze
I'm hearing a song, a song through the trees
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
That fine melody caressing the shore
Familiar to me, I've heard it before
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, that's Southland

Don't I feel it in my soul
And don't I know I've reached my goal
Sing me to sleep
Lullaby of the leaves
Track Name: (Medley) I feel pretty (Leonard Bernstein/Stephen Sondheim) - I’m a brass band (Cy Coleman/ Dorothy Fields)
Somebody loves me,
My heart is beating so fast.
All kinds of music are pouring out of me,
Somebody loves me at last!

I feel pretty,
Oh, so pretty,
I feel pretty and witty and bright!
And I pity
Any girl who isn't me tonight.

I feel charming,
Oh, so charming
It's alarming how charming I feel!
And so pretty
That I hardly can believe I'm real.

See the pretty girl in that mirror there:
Who can that attractive girl be?
Such a pretty face,
Such a pretty dress,
Such a pretty smile,
Such a pretty me!

I'm a brass band,
I'm a harpsichord;
I'm a clarinet!
I'm the Philadelphia Orchestra,
I'm the Modern Jazz Quartet!
I'm the band from Macy's Big Parade.
A wild Count Basie blast!
I'm the bells from Saint Peter's in Rome
I'm tissue paper on a comb...
And all kinds of music
Is pouring out of me 'cause...
Somebody loves me...at last!

And all kinds of music
Is pouring out of me

For I'm loved by a pretty wonderful boy!
Track Name: Adagietto to my Mother (Gustav Mahler/Gabriela Beltramino)
A sudden moment
took you away
and left me here
so small and lonely,
only dressed in tears,
buried in the fears
of upcoming life...

And in this darkness
you haunt me
you are the ray of light
that I can't see or touch,
and your embrace,
my lost home.

Yet, I wonder
where your sweet eyes
and smile are hiding...
In a star
beyond the night,
radiating light,
or in the piercing shadows
where I'm grieving...

Why did you go so far away from my?
So far away from me...
Track Name: I’ll be seeing you (Sammy Fain/Irving Kahal)
I'll be seeing you
In all the old familiar places
That this heart of mine embraces
All day through.

In that small cafe;
The park across the way;
The children's carousel;
The chestnut trees;
The wishin' well.

I'll be seeing you
In every lovely summer's day;
In every thing that's light and gay.
I'll always think of you that way.

I'll find you
In the morning sun
And when the night is new.
I'll be looking at the moon,
But I'll be seeing you.
Track Name: I’m old fashioned (Jerome Kern/Johnny Mercer)
I'm old fashioned
I love the moonlight
I love the old fashioned things

The sound of rain
Upon a window pane
The starry song that April sings

This year's fancies
Are passing fancies
But sighing sighs holding hands
These my heart understands

I know I'm old fashioned
But I don't mind it
That's how I want to be
As long as you agree
To stay old fashioned with me
Track Name: The Flower and the Bluebird (Gabriela Beltramino/Mariano Loiácono)
(Verse)

In the forgotten forest
An ancient tree
With a branch like an arrow
I saw in front of me.
And on the branch a little flower
With a raindrop, like a tear
And a bluebird flying away
Into the deep.
The trees whispered this story
Right into the wind…

(Choruses)

“Away he flies”, thought the flower,
Sadly through her weep.
The only true love she ever felt
sailed away beyond the leaves.

The years they shared were so wonderful,
Since that magic day in May,
When the bluebird found the rare branch
And decided there to stay.

And his love for her, deep as the forest,
Made him leave aside his wings
To stay with her forever,
Forgetting all his other dreams.

His feathers covered her so deeply
She forgot to feel the sun.
Her weak colors faded sharply;
Then she knew what should be done:

“Bluebirds must fly,
here are your wings for you to reach the sky”,
She said crying, and he could sadly understand
That love would live, but this was goodbye.

Tears were falling, but the forest was bright,
Whispering this story of love that won’t die.
Track Name: I wish I knew how it would feel to be free (Billy Taylor/Dick Dallas)
I wish I knew how it would feel to be free
I wish I could break all the chains holding me
I wish I could say all the things that I should say
say 'em loud, say 'em clear
for the whole round world to hear.

I wish I could share all the love that's in my heart
remove all the bars that keep us apart
I wish you could know what it means to be me
Then you'd see and agree
that every man should be free.

I wish I could give all I'm longing to give
I wish I could live like I'm longing to live
I wish that I could do all the things that I can do
though I'm way overdue I'd be starting anew.

Well I wish I could be like a bird in the sky
how sweet it would be if I found I could fly
Oh I'd soar to the sun and look down at the sea
and I'd sing cos I'd know
how it feels to be free
Track Name: (It’s not easy) Bein’ green (Joe Raposo)
It's not that easy bein' green
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves
When I think it could be nicer bein' red or yellow or gold
Or something much more colorful like that

It's not easy bein' green
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things
And people tend to pass you over 'cause you're
Not standin' out like flashy sparkles on the water
Or stars in the sky

But green is the color of spring
And green can be cool and friendly-like
And green can be big like an ocean
Or important like a mountain
Or tall like a tree

When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why
But why wonder, why wonder?
I am green and it'll do fine
It's beautiful
And I think it's what I want to be

Track Name: Since the very first of all (Gabriela Beltramino)
On a gloomy day, and my love away,
There’s nothing that can help to heal my heart.
All alone I lay, all I see is dark and gray,
‘cause all the brightness left inside your eyes.

Lovely memories stay, while you’re on your way,
And I only dream of not being apart.
Be that as it may, I’m just feeling stray,
Though I know that soon I will be in your arms.

The days without your kiss don’t have a colour
They only show a hazy trace of gray
I remember all those days of love and laughter
That found us dreaming of never being away.

I want you to remember, the only words I say
And save them and recall them, wherever leads the way:
I miss you since the last kiss I gave you;
I love you since the very first of all.
Track Name: I love being here with you (Peggy Lee/Bill Schluger)
I love the East, I love the West
And North and South, they’re both the best
But I only want go there as a guest
'Cause I love being here with you

I love the sea, I love the shore
I love the rocks and what is more
With you there, they'd never be a bore
'Cause I love being here with you

Singing in the shower, laughing by the hour
Life is such a breezy game
Love all kinds of weather, long as we're together
I love to hear you say my name

I love good wine and fine cuisine
And candle light, I like the scene
But baby if you know what I mean
I love being here with you

I like a dance by Fred Astaire
And Brando's eyes, Yul Brynner's hair
But I think to tell you's only fair
That I love being here with you

And Cary Grant, oh do-dah-day
His utter charm takes me away
But don't get me wrong, how do you say
I love being here with you

Basie's band a-swinging, I like Ella's singing
Because there's something else, you know
They know how to say it, they know how to play it
They wind it up and let it go

I love the thrill of New York shows
I'd love to kiss Durante's nose
But I'd like to say before I close
That I love, and is love, I love being here with you
Track Name: Here’s to life (Artie Butler/Phyllis Molinary)
No complaints and no regrets
I still believe in chasing dreams and placing bets
And I have learned that all you give is all you get
So give it all you've got

I had my share, I drank my fill
And even though I'm satisfied, I'm hungry still
To see what's down another road, beyond a hill
And do it all again

So here's to life
And every joy it brings
Here's to life
To dreamers and their dreams

Funny how the time just flies
How love can go from warm hellos to sad goodbyes
And leave you with the memories you've memorized
To keep your winters warm

But there's no yes in yesterday
And who knows what tomorrow brings, or takes away
As long as I'm still in the game, I want to play
For laughs, for life, for love

So here's to life
And every joy it brings
Here's to life
To dreamers and their dreams

May all your storms be weathered
And all that's good get better

Here's to life
Here's to love
And here's to you
