Yes, that's Michele Greene as in the former L.A. Law actress who spent six seasons on the '80s TV hit as attorney Abby Perkins.
Yes, that's Michele Greene as in the former L.A. Law actress who spent six seasons on the '80s TV hit as attorney Abby Perkins. And, yes, she's co-written and recorded a Spanish-English album, because, if truth be told, she's half Latina (her mother is Mexican-Nicaraguan). The appropriately titled Ojo de Tiburon (Eye of the Shark) will certainly open some eyes; Greene possesses a lovely, lilting soprano voice with just a hint of brine, the better to render her tunes in the tangy Spanish tongue. That said, the set's English lyrics are a tad too paint-by-numbers. Composed primarily of uncluttered, gently swaying, south-of-the-border acoustic ballads, Ojo de Tiburon is propelled along by hints of Latin percussion, violin, and occasionally accordion. Peruvian producer/guitarist Ciro Hurtado (a founding member of Huayucaltia) cannily shapes the proceedings to appeal equally to Anglo and Latin tastes.—MM
