Wikipedia : This day (March 6, 1942), in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, is born Flora Purim a Brazilian jazz singer.

Flora Purim : Her first solo album in the US, Butterfly Dreams was released in 1973, which put her right away to the Top Five Jazz Singers on the Downbeat Magazine Fame Jazz Poll.

@allmusic : After meeting and marrying her husband, percussionist Airto Moreira, in their native Brazil, Purim moved with him to the U.S. in the late ’60s. Though she worked with Stan Getz and pianist Duke Pearson before the decade ended, it wasn’t until joining Chick Corea, Joe Farrell, Stanley Clarke, and Moreira in the original Return to Forever in 1972 that she became well known in the States.

@last.fm : Flora Purim’s voice has a range of at least four octaves. The musicians she works with have always been as important as her in the performances. Her mid 70s albums -Open Your Eyes You Can Fly,Encounter and That’s What She Said are fine examples of vocal and musical experimentation.
