In all good Hope, the debut album from singer, songwriter, and musician José Lobo, is a masterclass in intimacy, everything about it exuding a sense of closeness. From the highly personal lyrical themes and sparse, delicate instrumentation, to the singing, which sounds like a friend whispering a secret into your ear, the experience of listening to In all good Hope is akin to entering an inner sanctum. The bulk of the album is centred around his nylon- string guitar and mellifluous vocal style, which is always mixed right up front, capturing every breath and nuance. The astute listener may pick up a strong scent of bossa nova, which is no accident, as Lobo developed a great love for the '60s Brazilian genre while living in the city of Belo Horizonte during his teenage years. And though the album is a veritable linguistic bouquet – sung in Portuguese, Spanish, French, and English – its themes create a cohesive through line.
