The City of Dizzy & The City of My Soul | Jazz da Gama


October recap: Raul da Gama of Jazz da Gama highlighted my latest chamber jazz CD productions in his 4 page feature of me; feeling proud of what he wrote about each CD!

 

The City of Dizzy - Sophie Dunér & Jeremy Harman

“……stretching vocal and instrumental technique so that she not only fits the music of the 20th and 21st centuries, but seemingly all of the desperate fear and unbridled joy of human existence into every the extraordinary lyric. Miss Dunér’s attempt creates a new expression of Mr Mingus’ experience in a mash up of the surreal and a kind of modernist realism that is reminiscent of the kind of theatre of August Strindberg used to historicise and address social and political issues. ” – Jazz da Gama

“The expressive core of this album – which includes a brilliant version of Juan Tizol’s “Caravan” – is “Ugly Beautiful”, which conjures the famous ghost of Thelonious Monk. On this chart, Miss Dunér shows her breathtaking ability to indulge her vocalastics with a string quartet….This astounding recording was produced by the celebrated Michael Haas who spent more than three decades as executive producer at Decca Records – a decade of which he spent producing recordings for the great Georg Solti.” – Jazz da Gama

Collaboration with composer José Luís Greco


Thrilled over my collaboration together with great composer José Luís Greco:

“…Sophie´s voice is as exciting as a roller coaster. It feels like danger, like she´s going to go flying off the rails, but one is constantly reassured that she´s securely attached, firmly grounded. So many registers, colors, so much humor, and sometimes melancholy, all coming out of that golden throat of hers! Truly amazing.”
