About the album

Dave Brubeck loved crooked rhythms on the black and white keys, which are not necessarily to everyone's taste. The fact that the vocalist and saxophonist Sabine Kühlich from Aachen and the pianist Laia Genç from Cologne now dare to present a bunch of top-class songs of the maestro to the public on their CD "In Your Own Sweet Way" is due perhaps to the exceedingly charming challenge to let the seemingly complicated sound easy, simple and comprehensible. The keyboard great, who passed away at the end of 2012, represents something like an aesthetic lighthouse for the two women.
As a result, the two musicians were finally able realize their personal dream project. Stefan Hentz wrote in his liner notes that it is like a balancing on a slackline: "Child's play, totally effortless and perfectly natural, at least as it looks in the event of success." The courage to take risks, the tendency to complex puzzles and curiosity for ever new discoveries: "Brubeck had that ability, and he never failed with it. Genç and Kühlich have to be judged by that and make it clear at the same time that Brubeck's music is suitable as a springboard to intensity derived unmistakably from the present. Respect is in demand as well as transgression, feeling and understanding, convention and originality. Balance? What else?"
