ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
So viel Glück – So lücky
The Berlin born Parisian jazz singer Susanna Bartilla was raised to the sounds of The Great American Songbook, but also the more cabaret like tones of Marlene Dietrich and the Comedian Harmonists, as well as German standards by Zarah Leander and Hilde Knef.
In her newly released CD “So viel Glück – So Lucky” she blends these influences into a rousing, jazzy rendition of some of the greatest music ever composed during the Golden Age of German Songwriting, at last giving those marvelous tunes the swinging treatment they have been craving.
“The entirely new yet completely natural arrangements enhance the poignant melodies and rich harmonies of these immortal evergreens. It felt like polishing a wealth of raw diamonds. Singing for the first time in my mother tongue made me experience the emotional depth of the lyrics with an immediacy that came as a shock. I feel privileged to be able to convey those emotions and bring a fabulous repertoire to the attention of a whole new audience.”

This wonderful record is chockfull of great jazz. Susanna proves a natural swinger and a very talented singer. Her wonderfully warm voice with velvet low tones tells of singular, precious moments, real life.

ROBERT W. ULLENBRUCH

THIS CD IS A MUST HAVE, SUSANNA SINGS FROM THE HEART.
This cd is a treasure from song number one through ten. the music is second to none, and the vocals are sung from the heart and you feel the soul of each song. well worth the investment to add to your jazz collection.

Richard Newton

Timeless Treasures
I am convinced more than luck was involved in my welcome discovery of Susanna.
Her irresistible voice accompanied by impeccable musicians who are both responsive to and seamlessly integrated with her often sanguine, always genuinely entrancing and timeless interpretations make a compelling, even addictively, rich treat.
The multi-culturally influenced, sensitively rendered and subtly nuanced offerings, articulately delivered and refreshingly original, bring fresh perspectives while breathing new life into time-honored melodies and lyrics, effortlessly birthed.
Despite a prominent familial music heritage, her vocal art feels more like that of an "old soul," one who has herself, early on (long before the fullness of her sojourn), grasped the breadth and irony of the spectrum of life’s journey and the attendant joys or sorrows (as well as perspectives) we encounter along the way.
I am already better for the discovery and appreciate the opportunity to be counted among her devotees!
