The Lucia Cadotsch trio play jazz standards from Tin Pan Alley or Broadway, making these modern themes instead of museum relics, with certain details becoming guiding threads, as in hip-hop sampling. Their music is deliberately raw: Otis Sandsjö's tenor sax sometimes sounds like a vintage synthesizer and Petter Eldh's double bass like a 1980s drum machine, enveloping Lucia's voice with the sprightliness of free jazz. The group describe what they do as "acoustic retro-futurism", in line with Cadotsch's other projects (LIUN and the Science Fiction Band, Yellow Bird, Lucerne Jazz Orchestra).
More About Lucia Cadotsch
Remember the name Lucia Cadotsch – you’re going to be hearing a lot of it. Cadotsch is a young, Zurich-born vocalist who possesses a classical clarity, a folk singer’s simplicity, and an appetite for performing very famous songs (Moon River, Don’t Explain, Strange Fruit) in the company of two edgy free-jazz instrumentalists... It’s all eerily beautiful.
