Album Description

=>For the Song "Lone Islands" (category Jazz) Claudia has been chosen to be a Semi-Finalist in the International Songwriting Competition 2018. The ISC is located in Nashville. From 19000 entries (all categories) 10% (1900) have been awarded as a Semi Finalist. Other than 59 songs have been Semi Finalists in the category Jazz<= All 14 titles are originals from singer-songwriter Claudia Vorbach, who sometimes plays western guitar. She is accompanied by a Jazz Piano Trio: double bass, piano (or Fender Rhodes) and drums. The album varies with different genres. It includes Folk songs, Jazz and Latin Jazz Titles. For example the Folk Pop Tune “Height Dreams” is followed by the title “Making Believe Blues No.9”, which is combining Hip-Hop grooves, a Rap Part and an unexpected wild jazz piano solo. “Lone Islands” is a Jazz Ballad, “Big Fat Light” happens to be a country-blues duo: a western guitar, vocal and a double bass is all there is. Intimate moments appear also when Claudia is accompanying herself in the singer-songwriter style all alone on guitar or piano. Pianist Martin Soeroes won the "Czech Jazz Contest" and made the third place in "The New York Jazz Competition", both with the Jan Prax Quartett in 2014. Double Bass Player Axel Kuehn won the "Europaeische Burghaeuser Nachwuchs-Jazzpreis" in 2009 with the Kühntett.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
