ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
THINKING of women in jazz, we all too often think of singers and famous voices. But women have always been jazz artists in every respect: playing every instrument, writing arrangements and songs, and leading their own bands. This collection, joyfully put together by Laura Cesar, played by JazzIMpuls either performing as a duo or a quartet, takes us from the 1920s to the work of contemporary women composers. "Close Your Eyes“ is but one of the pieces on this CD which celebrates women’s contribution to jazz and gives them their due as influential musicians. Newly arranged standards like "Struttin‘ With Some Barbecue“, or "Willow Weep For Me“, compelling interpretations of more recent pieces like "I Know Who Loves You“ or "Blues For Herb“ speak of the band‘s enthusiasm and respect with which it pays tribute to these women’s compositions. The collection is rounded out by two original pieces: Laura Cesar‘s "Bubs“, dedicated to her husband, and Beat Baumli’s "September 27th“ in celebration of his wife’s birthday. Close your eyes and you will neither hear nor care whether the beautiful music has been composed by a man or a woman. But thanks to this inspiring collection we now enjoy music from women in jazz, formerly underrated or seldom heard, fully aware, with open minds and open hearts.
