Songs in a Cabaret

Band :
Release Date : September 11, 2013
Label :
Format : CD

Sven Ratzke’s Songs in a Cabaret is an album to get lost in. Wandering through its mazes, urged forward by the haunting trumpet sounds of Eric Vloeimans or the weeping accordion of Tuur Florizoone, you may never want to leave again. Ratzke, the master of ceremonies, takes you firmly by the hand and guides you through his emotional life. There are no stops or time- outs as even between the tracks sound scapes and voices – tinklin’ bells, the voice of Claron McFadden, crude conversations and loud kisses – keep you enthralled.

Songs from Diva’s like Marlene Dietrich, Grace Jones, Ingrid Caven, Zarah Leander and new songs written for Ratzke by Mathilde Santing, Fay Lovsky, Cora Frost and Rachelle Garniez
