LONDON Southbank Centre / Purcell Room
ECHO Prize-winning Swiss jazz singer Lucia Cadotsch will perform in the festival with her Berlin-based trio featuring saxophonist Otis Sandsjö and bassist Petter Eldh.
Speak Low reanimates songs from the Great American Songbook with a European angle, the group’s ‘retro-futurist’ sound informed by the remix culture, free jazz and their appreciation for classic vocal records.
Cadotsch possesses a classical clarity, a folk singer’s simplicity, and an appetite for performing i the company of two edgy free-jazz instrumentalists, In this compelling trio’s hands the process is remarkably melodious and illuminating. It’s all eerily beautiful.
