ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Most of the tracks on this album are products of live experimentation ideas that gradually developed into compositions and arrangements. We arrived in the studio without an agenda and played exactly what felt natural and organic in the moment. All laughs and "mistakes" have been left untouched, and what you will hear is an honest representation of what happens when we get together and make music we feel deeply connected to. We feel that the imperfections are what make this album unique.

Here is what John Daversa, three-time Grammy nominee and BFM Jazz recording artist, has to say about the album:

"The artistic platform of the duo summons brave souls of the universe. It demands intimacy, courage, risk-taking, creativity, innovation and an ample imagination. Each breath, each sound, and every silence carry heightened relevance as each musician must maintain complete respect and trust of one another. These attributes are abundantly intertwined within Intertwined.

The personalities at play on this album are special. It is clear to this listener that Danielle Wertz and Tal Cohen are creating with a sole agenda, which is to serve the music and nothing else. There is no ego in this music.

The re-imagining of standard repertoire such as Beautiful Love, But Not For Me, I Wish You Love, and Autumn Leaves takes reverent risks, fresh twists and turns, while showcasing strong musicianship by Wertz and Cohen as well as guest tenor saxophonist Jamie Oehlers (Beautiful Love and Autumn Leaves). These whispery characters seem to effortlessly dance with and around each other without ever stepping on a toe, while ever free to hold their own space.

The original material, Intertwined (Wertz/Cohen), Chopin Meets Abach (Cohen), Manhattan in the Rain (Duncan Lamont) hold similar qualities, yet somehow more personal. For Intertwined and Chopin Meets Abach, Wertz delivers soft, breath-like, intimate, and intricate, yet powerful wordless vocals. Her ability to story-tell, as if we are right there with her in the rain (Manhattan in the Rain), is wonderfully captivating.

Pianist Tal Cohen is a creative, imaginative muse throughout the entire album. His acute sensitivity and understanding of the music, lyrics, emotions, and what ever the musical moment may need of him, creates a masterful musician; a brave soul.

This album is the product of lovers of music, ego-less brave souls, coming together to serve a musical moment. Allow yourself to melt into its whispery ballet of sounds. Allow yourself to become bravely intertwined."
