In his duo with the jazz singer Susanne Vogt, US guitarist Woody Mann puts all of his experience into action to generate an astonishingly variegated and powerfully sonorous work with his extensive string knowledge. Woody demonstrates his class not only as a soloist who weaves a dense and robust harmonic and rhythmic net. Susanne Vogt is one of the most spotlighted German jazz singers – a fact that earned her the Cultural Funding Prize of the city of Kassel. Within the setting of the intimate duo with Woody Mann, she can bask in all the refinements of her vocal art and enjoys the widest leeway possible. This is also revealed in the repertoire selection: Touches of ragtime, blues, jazz, musette waltzes and charming swing, in addition to ballads. In sum: "Waltz For Joy" by Susanne Vogt and Woody Mann is an outstanding duo recording with acoustic guitar and voice that sets new standards with its diversity.
