Album Remarks & Appraisals:

Amsterdam based singer Ilse Huizinga is one of The Netherlands' renowned jazz singers. After recording six critically acclaimed albums- featuring selections of jazz standards- she just issued her seventh album presenting entirely new compositions by Erik van der Luijt. The album marks a new path for Ilse, as this is the first time she recorded new material exclusively. When American writer and poet Dr. Maya Angelou passed away in 2014, Ilse discovered her work. The mood and strength of her poetry touched her deeply, and thus she began to collect the poems that most resonated with her and asked Erik van der Luijt to put them to music. This release is the result of this collaboration.
