PRESS RELEASE LONG

(Chamber Jazz-Pop)

Filigree to powerful - on her self-produced debut album "Delicate" (Unit Records) singer Salome Moana explores facets of chamber jazz-pop. Dancing rhythms accompany sensitive lyrics, improvisations lead to subtle arrangements. With a sensitive voice, the Swiss jazz musician tells of love and renunciation, of loneliness and joie de vivre. The songs - passionately interpreted in quintet formation - touch and reverberate.

 

Salome Moana is accompanied by four musicians, pianist David Cogliatti, drummer Marton Juhasz, baritone saxophonist/bass clarinetist Kira Linn and bass guitarist Marc Mezgolits. All of them studied at Jazzcampus Basel in Switzerland.
