~ Sara K. is in a class all of her own. This singer is gifted with the rare ability of having an emotional grasp of the listener by virtue of her spontaneous and intensive aura that casts a spell on the listener. All her records have received several high-calibre awards, including a number of jazz awards.
"Hell or High Water", (Stockfisch Records), Sara K.'s second album produced outside of the US, is not only a brilliant poetic and musical achievement. It is a great sounding recording as well. This SACD/CD yields 10 previously unreleased songs, featuring the late Chris Jones on guitar and dobro. It is Sara K's 10th CD to date.
This Hybrid-SACD includes a 16bit hybrid layer and can therefore be played on any CD-Player! SACD Surround sound (5.1 multi-channel mix) requires multi-channel SACD player and compatible surround sound system for playback.
The songs of this album once more open up Sara K.’s musical universe, or as you will: her soul. She is a brave woman who goes where ever she wants and takes the listener with her. For the former you need conviction, for the latter seduction. Her often imagistic lyrics are singular in their emotional intensity – easy to accept but strong in their content – a velvet hand in a boxing glove which you would like to send you into the realm of dreams.
“Sara K is an international hidden treasure. She is a superb singer with a range of emotion in her voice that will melt the coldest heart. She is a superb songwriter with an endless capacity to write a song that you will know in seconds and love for years. In fact “superb” seems to be the bottom line. Can anyone explain why there isn’t a Sara K CD in every collection? Hell or High Water is Sara K at her very very best.” John Carver - PBS radio Australia
