In "Speak Low," Swiss jazzer Lucia Cadotsch and her band members from Sweden render jazz classics in an unusual, scaled-back sound. Hear for yourself: We recorded them at the Jazzfest Bonn.
Classics by Kurt Weill, Billy Holiday and Henry Mancini, given a makeover with solo voice, bass and saxophone: that's the recipe followed by Lucia Cadotsch and her co-musicians Petter Eldh on bass and Otis Sandsjö on the tenor sax. It's all about reduction, or as they call it, "retro futurism." Their album is fittingly titled "Speak Low:" Jazz at its finest!
The performance on May 22, 2019 in Bonn's "Brotfabrik" concert Hall Opera was recorded live by West German Radio, Cologne (WDR) for Jazz Live!
