Notes and Editorial Reviews

With Tell It Like It Is, Thomas Quasthoff floors the music world again with this recording of American Country, Rock and Soul with a jazz feeling. This world-class interpreter of Lieder brings the words to life with an immediacy that connects to the listener

The album is Thomas Quasthoff’s personal selection of songs – his “favourite things” – he really loves and likes to sing. Each individual song adds up to a stylistically diverse and colourful album that portraits Quasthoff’s musical joy and brilliance outside of the classical repertoire Thomas Quasthoff digs into his music with a super quartet: Frank Chastenier, keyboards, Wolfgang Haffner, drums, Dieter Ilg, bass, and Bruno Müller, guitar
