Extraordinarily skillful jazz soundscapes Carol Liebowitz & Birgitta Flick – MALITA-MALIKA: I’ve reviewed Carol’s wonderful jazz piano soundscapes before, most recently on her “SpiderWebMandala” with clarinetist Bill Payne… in this new set of sonic adventures with saxophonist Birgitta, their jazz skill together shines brilliantly, and will lure your ears into their siren song without you even noticing you’ve been bewitched… the video below is from about 3 years ago, but still shows their easy pacing and captivating phrasing…
…be sure you SUBSCRIBE to Carol’s YouTube channel, where you’ll find many other performance videos, too.
The 5:11 “Visions” is a perfect testimony to the creative juices that flow together in, ’round and through their souls – not to mention their instruments… they first met way back in 2010, and have since toured together extensively… you’ll hear the familiarity and comfort they have established on this dynamic and penetrating piece!
I especially enjoyed Birgitta’s original (the title track), “Malita-Malika“, and have little doubt readers who understand that truly good jazz is shaped by the spirit, rather than just being a series of “written notes”… this is definitely THE best piano/sax duo I’ve heard (yet) in 2018.
Their marvelous performance together on the standard “You Don’t Know What Love Is“, is definitely not the “standard” your grandpa smooth-danced to “back in the day”… they explore the very inner depths, and the vocal will stir feelings that you thought long lost… I’ll tell you right up front – you’ve never heard this beautiful song performed as well as this.
