Album Description

This marvellous new recording is Lemper’s personal reflection of Marlene Dietrich’s most celebrated songs from all chapters of her career, including the German, American and French songbooks. With a gentle homage to Marlene’s style, Ute’s authentic and playful interpretations are imbued with her imagination and musicality. This story begins more than thirty years ago in 1988. After Ute won France’s Moliére Award for her performance as Sally Bowles in Cabaret, Lemper sent Marlene a postcard to apologise for all of the media attention comparing the two. Marlene called Ute, and that 3-hour phone call serves as the inspiration for this album. Ute was at the beginning of her career in theatre and music, whereas Marlene was reflecting upon an extraordinary life of stardom, passion and collaboration. What a secret gift to hear Marlene speak about her life, her work and style, her love for the poet Rilke, her complicated relationship with Germany, her sorrow and her fascinations. Ute shares this gift with audiences today through these fabulous new recordings of songs first made famous by Dietrich throughout her career – from the Berlin cabaret years through her musical partnership with Burt Bacharach.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
