Alex Spencer Duo - live! - Café Ludwig - Halle

Akustischer Jazzfolk vom feinsten... Kaum in eines ihrer Videos reingehört, griene ich über das ganze Gesicht und freue mich dermaßen auf dieses Konzert. Mag man Silje Nergaard oder andere jazzige Stimmen, sollte man diesen Abend nicht verpassen... die Stimme ist genial, die Stimmung perfekt für einen Wein und um seine Gedanken einfach nur treiben zu lassen. Perfekt für einen herbstlichen Abend in unserem Wohnzimmer!--------------------------------------------------------------------------------https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yU7Ny4e6Gu0-------------------------------------------------------------------------------Having been away from the active music scene forseveral years while raising her 4 children, Alex Spencerhas returned with a compelling new album, Shine.Teaming up with the stellar Berlin jazz trio of BenLehmann (double bass), Martial Frenze (drums) and PaulEngelmann (alto saxophone), Spencer has producedwork of change and transformation. The songs explorejuxtapositions between youth and ageing, children andparents, technology and humanity – all underpinned bythe group’s steady rhythms and mellow tones. Partfeel-good jazz, part sophisticated folk, this albumstretches its arms wide and brings its themes togetheraround a kitchen table where everyone is welcome.Growing up in a musical family amongst both the greenhills of western England and the forests of southernGermany, Alex Spencer moved to the big city of Berlinafter her studies in Philosophy in the summer of 2000.Between her children and working as a teacher, she hasalso managed to keep her life and identity as an artistalive, releasing her first album, ‘Underwater’ in 2010 andfollowing it up with ‘Shine’ in 2019. When she's notplaying live on the Berlin singer-songwriter gig circuit,Alex can be found walking her dog through Görlitzer Parkin her Kreuzberg neighbourhood.----------------------------------------------------------------------------
