Album Remarks & Appraisals:

Pianist Julia Hülsmann and singer Theo Bleckmann celebrate lesser-known Kurt Weill works alongside the master's best-loved songs including "Mack The Knife", "Speak Low" and "September Song". It marks a musical advance for the Hülsmann group at a number of levels, and these recastings of Weill open up new imaginative possibilities for the players.

"Theo Bleckmann gets 'Mack' just right, delivering a creeping back-alley reading that's downright chilling.
