Borboletas "Nachtpoesie“ [„Night Poetry"]
Jazz duo BORBOLETAS aka Pascal Schweren and Imke Johanne Spöring love to do the unexpected. Accordingly, their debut album "Nachtpoesie" (released on Makro in 2016) is charmingly sweeping aside any attempt at pigeonholing them in any way. The have cultivated a true sound universe: the two skillfully fill the musical gap between "minimalist" and "orchestral" and always evolve into a kind of loving playfulness, which makes the listener smile and sigh.
On their nocturnal journey, BORBOLETAS presents their favourite songs, both from the rich treasure of jazz history as well as their own original compositions. Their interpretation of Gershwins "How long has this been going on" is filled with yearning eroticism and lasciviousness. Jazz ballads like "Spring is here" or "Skylark" impress with their dismaying honesty.
Imke Johanne Spöring's warm voice embodies the words she sings, sighs, teases, laughs, cries – and she shows enormous wealth of ideas not only when she improvises. Pascal Schweren gives prompt answers to musical questions, is always counterpart instead of 'just' accompanist.
A welcome guest in this poetic storm is the cologne violinist Coco Kausch. He combines gypsy swing and folk elements with delightfully wild improvisations. In the group he is also in demand as a singer and composer.
The charismatic German bass player Alex Morsey enriches the ensemble by means of enormous creativity and a good deal of boldness and shows that a bass can do much more than just basic tones.
Whether the four musicians are creatively playing around or thundering the sound of a wide landscape into the room - their masterful playing with moods produces goose bumps and swinging grooves alike!
