If you remember back in 2003, Jeremy Monteiro released a Jazz CD titled "A Song For You, Karen" a tribute CD of Carpenters hits some being sung by Jacintha. The CD I believe went out of print but was later remastered in Ultra High Definition. I bought the CD on iTunes back in 2011 but I don't think it's on there any longer. If you like Jazz music, it's a awesome CD. Jacintha provides some terrific Jazz smokey night club vocals, it really gives the listener a feeling for how a Carpenters album by Richard and Karen might have sounded if they went that route back in the 80's.

So I just found out that Jeremy Monteiro is releasing a new Carpenters Jazz Tribute album in September. He has provided a 5 min promo sampler on his soundcloud wesbite.

Here is info on his 1st tribute ablum, A Song For You Karen in case you missed it.
