PREIS DER DEUTSCHEN SCHALLPLATTENKRITIK
Orchester Kurt Edelhagen feat. Mary Lou Williams and Caterina Valente
The jazzhaus-production has been honored with the German Record Critics' Award and admitted to the Best List 4/2013 of outstanding artistically new releases.
Baden-Baden, 1954: Mary Lou Williams meets Kurt Edelhagen and his rhythm group. In November the orchestra headed to Switzerland. Discipline and free thought combined, a rhythm section in full swing mode. “Tuxedo Junction” featured a Mulliganesque Helmut Reinhardt; clear and sweet, Franz von Klenck’s solo in “You Go To My Head”. Yes, indeed: “Lester Leaps In”. And with Caterina Valente Basel succumbed to a fräuleinwunder.
