ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Folds of the Soul offers, from a very powerful individual perspective, original compositions and standards. Comprehending a wide musical spectrum it reaches a cohesive discourse of solid creative rigour, with a clear orientation to Avant-Garde Jazz. Sabrina sings with irreproachable technical display, and unusual expressive intensity."
Sergio Piccirilli - El Intruso

The Folds of the Soul "A magic atmosphere which folds can only be crossed by the breath that becomes sound. And Lastman do it in a very tuned and delicate discovery of details. Her voice is impeccable. It seduces, grills, plays with contrasting images and irregular sonoric surfaces".
Alexander Laluz - Brecha

"Her imaginative sounds, her rich range of sound, her musical vocabulary, and her creativity are vital and profound".
Anat Shamgar

"She is a talented vocalist with an eclectic background in classical and jazz singing, very free and experimental, combining various genres in a personal and unusual way".
Jean Claude Jones
