Spanish singer Concha Buika weaves together flamenco-flavored originals and jazz classics on her enchanting new album, La Noche Mas Larga. The best singers can make a song felt regardless of what they’re singing, and likewise you don’t have to speak the language to understand the sense of longing she conveys in the original “Sueño Con Ella,” nor do you have to speak Spanish to feel your hips move during her take on the classic song “Siboney.” Like one of her heroes Chavela Vargas, the late Mexican singer whom she covered on 2009’s El Ultimo Trago, Buika has an original voice, a husky, breathy instrument that calls to mind Vargas and Billie Holiday, which she lends to well-loved songs such as Jaques Brel’s “Ne Me Quitte Pas,” scatting, sighing and belting with equal dexterity. She ably combines flamenco with Latin and American jazz, as the fusion of jazz trumpet, flamenco guitar and Afro-Cuban beat on “La Nave Del Olvido” can attest. But this is not a forced fusion; whenever the mélange needs to take a backseat, it does, as on the title track, in which a simpler, moody piano, bass and drum piece that allows her throaty call to echo into the night. Though her songs convey a certain melancholy, listening to Buika on La Noche Mas Larga feels like a celebration of music and voice.
