Sandie Wollasch “Better”
Musically, the new album by the De Phazz guest singer moves between jazz and singer/songwriter pop. A groovy foundation, sometimes a bass solo or a syncopated piano: everything sounds very relaxed, wonderful understatement. Especially on the title song Better, Joni Mitchell and Rickie Lee Jones look around the corner.
The tracks were written in Karlsruhe’s Weststadt in Sandie Wollasch’s living room – on her son’s children’s guitar. Sandie wrote the lyrics, as always, together with her friend Inga Brock. Her fellow musicians Klaus Wagenleiter (piano), Guido Jöris (drums) and Decebal Badila (bass) play in the legendary rhythm section of the SWR Big Band. The three top-class musicians provided the arrangements for the new songs.
