Friday evening, May 5th – for a short moment, the album reaches number 4 in the Itunes-jazz-charts! Thank you Timm at Ambient Domain for noticing!
And then there is this nice review in Schall-Musikmagazin, a german magazine about german music. Thank you Grit Brugasch!
Here’s my attempt at translating her kind words…
“Twelve years after her first, Stephanie Hundertmark releases her second CD – which might be unusual, but seems to comply with her and her way. Fame was never the objective, she merely wanted to make her music and share it. This laid-back approach is tangible in the songs. Much has happened during those twelve years and she experienced that is is easier to write about pain and sorrow than about happy times. Yet she wonderfully managed to realize the latter in her new album. She sounds completely natural and at peace. Her music merges jazz, pop, soul and swing elements into an individual sound. But the icing on the cake is her sensuous groove and a warmth of soul that pours from the songs and her voice. It is an album that radiates positive energy – in sounds and words.”
