Notes and Editorial Reviews
For this delightful new album, German folk songs are altered by a completely new sound: jazz. For the first time, the SWR Vokalensemble Stuttgart and the SWR Big Band collaborate for a recording. Conducted by Morten Schuldt-Jensen, the big band brings a rhythmic energy to the folk song melodies.
