NEW ALBUM WATER COMING IN MARCH 2022
Berlin-based jazz vocalist and composer Esther Kaiser‘s work has been continually lauded by critics and audiences alike, which is why her new album entitled Water (release date: 03/22/2022, label: GLM) is highly anticipated. Apart from being an active vocal artist, Kaiser also holds a tenure as jazz voice professor at the renowned HfM Dresden. For her upcoming album, she has picked a currently relevant topic just like she did with her last, critically acclaimed Songs of Courage. The theme permeating Water addresses the ever-flowing and ever-changing quality of our times in which nothing is more permanent than constant change and the dissolution of everything we thought solid or traditional. In the words of Thales von Milet: “All things are from water and all things are resolved into water.” In this vein, the album’s musically and lyrically multi-faceted approach keeps returning to pure clarity and levity, even though Kaiser has a way of hinting at socio-political as well as climatic challenges in her cleverly nuanced delivery.
