Michaela Rabitsch & Robert Pawlik Quartet: VoyagersBy Track review of "Round Midnight"
An important piece on the disc is audaciously entitled "Round Midnight." Gratefully, this is an original that, like the famous standard, is intended to evoke a mood from the late hours. Rabitsch's silky vocals purr their way through the lyrics, with her muted trumpet recalling Miles Davis, but miles and miles from that performance. Pawlik misses nothing, delivering a pithy solo that comes close to Joe Pass in places without achieving the excess. This is interesting music produced in a place fertile with new sounds and ideas. Voyagers contains compelling contemporary music, well composed and performed.
