This is a well-engineered and mastered MC and Stereo Hybrid SACD recording from Stockfisch Records, of one of my fav singer/songwriters. Nice fretless bass lines by Hans-Jörg Maucksch.
One of my all-time fav HiRes discs at a great price.
"Folk-Pop, Jazz-Blues, Scat-Vocals and just a hint of avant-garde: Sara K., the singer-songwriter based in Santa Fe, New Mexico (originally from Dallas, Texas), has never paid much attention to musical 'borders'. With her excitingly expressive voice and 4-string (!) guitar, she occupies a niche that is no less unique than the stories she sings. Sara has lived these stories, is right in the middle of them and relates them from the heart – warm, personal and moving.
This last album is surely one of her very best, maybe it is THE best. It is certainly no less than sensational. Like good wine, this one has it all – that inner glow, that shining light that is the true sign of real art. Guitars, exotic instruments including the harp form an ideal backdrop for the singer – with Sara K. sounding articulate to the highest degree, her performance mature, completely lacking any harshness whatsoever. This is passion in control. Gentlemen – get hit by that power of a heavyweight champion coming in a velvety disguise."
