Send in the ClownsWe are extremelly proud to deliver the new release of the fantastic combination of famous piano player STEWY VON WATTENWYL and his group with the outstanding singer NICOLE HERZOG. Their first release in 2013 got award with the SWISS JAZZ AWARD in 2014. This one would be ready for a new Award for 2016 - allready now, a few weeks after the year stars....Copenhagen-based singer Nicole Herzog and Bernese pianist Stewy von Wattenwyl first joined forces on their successful 2014 release “Intimacy“, which went straight to being awarded Swiss Jazz Album Of The Year in the same year. Now the two are excited to present their highly anticipated follow-up, “I Loves You Billie“. Herzog and von Wattenwyl dedicate their second oeuvre to Jazz greats Billie Holiday and George Gershwin. Holiday would have celebrated her 100th anniversary in 2015 and Gershwin’s musical “Porgy and Bess“ came into being more than 80 years ago. Thus they consciously chose to concentrate on music that had long passed its test of time. What’s so captivating about this recording: Jazz history is preserved here, it’s all wrapped up in the classic nostalgia alluding to the smokey basements of New York and Paris in the 1930s. However, don’t be fooled into false expectations: von Wattenwyl’s tasteful arrangements display an affinity for contemporary music, and Herzog’s interpretations vary immensely, from carefully timed delicate phrases to unexpected forceful outbursts. Supported by an unceasingly intense hard swinging band this record shows von Wattenwyl and Herzog at their best, always performing with depth and full of devotion. Don’t miss!
