Today we welcome another addition to our booking roster: ULITA KNAUS!
“The woman can simply sing!” Jazz legend Rolf Kühn
Some themes never get old, and the feelings that go with them even less so. Love, also and especially for poetry and jazz, is one of them for Ulita Knaus.
For her eighth solo album “Old Love And New”, the exceptional singer and composer brings these two matters of the heart together for the first time. The fourteen beautiful new compositions she has penned are based on poems by her favorite female poets – they are timeless texts, always emotional and sometimes political, which Ulita Knaus brings to life with a poignant lightness. Already, partly because Ulita’s band swings so fabulously, the songs seem like rediscovered standards from the great songbook era of Cole Porter or the Gershwins. Pausing and evolution, rights for all and “Bicycles Built For Two” – the fact that these themes sound so insistent and relaxed on “Old Love And New” is of course also due to the musicians behind it. “An excellent band with sensitive arrangements accompanies Ulita magnificently and sensitively”, says European jazz legend Rolf Kühn. “The woman can simply sing! […] All in all a great production with a highly talented artist. Congratulations to all involved.”
