THE WEE HOURS
by Sascha Ley & Laurent Payfert
Our new album is now available.
In case you know Sascha Ley, you will know what to expect from this CD. The Saarbrücken born artist from Luxembourg, who also works as an actress and composer, is - if one may say so - without parallel in Europe. Melodious, expressive and with stunning lyrics. Of course she makes ample use of her voice, not only when reciting/singing the lyrics, but also in order to perform them in a moving manner; in every respect an extraordinary singer and musician. She is accompanied by the bass player Laurent Payfert who is connected to the entire spectrum of acoustic music this enchanting solo artist stands for. There is a lot of storytelling, acting and improvisation in each of these songs. Here we find music and drama combined in a unique way. 11/2015 Hans-Jürgen von Osterhausen JAZZ PODIUM
