MICHAELA RABITSCH & ROBERT PAWLIK QUARTET:
Michaela Rabitsch, singer, composer and Austria’s only female top jazz trumpet player is called a modern day female Chet Baker by the US magazine Jazzscene. Michaela and her ingenious partner, composer and incredible fluid guitarist Robert Pawlik present a program, inspired by their numerous tours of the last years through Europe, Asia, the America and Africa.
The (musical) impressions are reflected in their compositions and guarantee a deversified and multi-variant musical experience. (National) musical elements of different countries or ethnic groups influence the compositions or inspire the tunes.
Weather with African rhythms or flamenco touch, Cuban fire or Balkan grooves – every song has that certain something, without denying the hallmarks of both leaders.
Under the motto „diversity instead of simplemindness“ they pick off the most interesting elements and inspirations from different musical cultures and contrast them with their own musical background and create a refreshing new musical melange.
"From Austria they come and this trumpet/guitar led crew just might conquer the world with their sound." (Chris Spector, Midwest Record Recap, USA
