Vocalist Marion Lenfant-Preus and guitarist Alexander Sobocinski and their band shuttle back and forth with fascinating lightness between vocal gypsy jazz and swing, chansons and sonorities from the Balkans. On their most recent album, the Franco-American singer and the Polish gypsy guitarist present their own compositions, chanson-like songs and sensitive arrangements of well-known melodies that they weave into a very special, beguiling world of sound.
They are backed by Frank Brempel on violin, alternating bass players Stefan Rey and Stefan Berger, and Jonas Vogelsang on guitar, with special guests Simon Doetsch on trumpet and Yoshinao Mikami on piano. Marion Lenfant-Preus sings her way with absolute confidence in French, English, German, Spanish and other languages, songs about secret loves, relinquishing conventional life, strange figures, letting go, being.
Throughout this studio album, the “Marion & Sobo Band” preserves the same vivacity, enthusiasm and fresh energy of their live performances. Hats off!
