Maria Răducanu is the most important Romanian jazz vocalist of this past decade. None of the three albums she appears on are solo albums of her, but like always with collaborations, she always got to be the first mentioned in the names because she's the vocalist. All the three albums are jazz interpretations of Romanian traditional songs, each in a different way.

The first is with the already known here Vlaicu Golcea (from Jazz Unit and Cristian Soleanu) and Sorin Romanescu (from Iordache, Cristian Soleanu, Marius Popp, etc.). The interpretations are very experimental in an ambiental, psychedelic way.

Brilliant album.

The second album is with pianist Mircea Tiberian (already on JMA). This is a more traditional vocal+piano jazz.

The third album was released on 2010 on Tzadik; she plays with Marc Ribot. Here he brings influence from world music and improv jazz.

I noticed she was missing but I was sure that sooner or later you will suggest her, and I have my own agenda to pursue(still some 20 artists on my list waiting to be suggested)

I think the problem with a lot of the fusion music is that it's extremely predictable, it's a rock rhythm and the solos all play the same stuff and they play it over and over again ...

You're doing a GREAT job! I didn't know you had such an extensive knowledge of jazz. Shocked Clap

I have four more suggestions of Romanian jazz artists left, then I'm done. After that I'm starting to complete the discographies.

Can the artist name be changed to Maria Răducanu, please? Big smile I know the JMA software doesn't have a problem with ă because it's shown OK on in Johnny Răducanu's entry.

Here's a nice artist photo:

Corrected. Better to send such info on errors/omissions  thread otherwise it  sometimes could be unnoticed
