High talent reed jazz Sarah Elgeti Quartet with Friends – Dawn Comes Quietly

High talent reed jazz Sarah Elgeti Quartet with Friends – DAWN COMES QUIETLY:  Another beautiful newcomer on my jazz scene, this time from Denmark… Sarah and her musical friends (Sidsel Storm – vocals, Alexander Kraglund – violin, Søren Birkelund – clarinet, Marianne Cæcilia Eriksen – baritone saxophone, Nils Raae – keys, harmonica, Anders Krogh Fjeldsted – bass, Henrik Holst Hansen – drums) perform one of the most creative jazz sets I’ve heard (yet) in 2020, featuring Sarah’s high talent reed jazz as the lead.  In order to get better acquainted with her unique jazz signature, be sure to watch this LIVE video from a September 2019 performance…

…& since you’re right there already, be sure to SUBSCRIBE to Sarah’s YouTube channel, where you’ll find many more stimulating performance videos.

Whether it’s the upbeat swing of “Changing Whispers“, or the laid-back pace of the opener, “Magical Thinking“,  you’re going to fall in love with Sarah’s inspiring jazz creations… I certainly did!

One of the shorter pieces, the 3:33 “Crazy Destiny“, is certainly bound for HUGE amounts of airplay on jazz stations all over the globe… DJ’s will love the length and the “ON” energy of the tune.

Sarah’s flute on “Introspection” will help you as you reflect on the beauty of life and living thereof… I loved Nils’s keyboards on this one, and have no doubt it will be one of your favorites, too!

Of the eleven songs on the album, it was (unquestionably) the simply titled “Snow” that got my vote for personal favorite… flawless recording and perfect pacing from each instrument makes this an absolute winner.

I give Sarah and her friends a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98 for this musical gem.  Get more information on Sarah’s website.              Rotcod Zzaj
