Lisa Bassenge entered the jazz scene like a rocket and made unmistakably clear that the concept of jazz was too narrow for her. To this day, the Berlin singer is intensively concerned with Americana, Country but also Pop influences. Her music has always remained young and has a high recognition value thanks to her unique voice. Music for people without stereotypes in their minds.

Lisa Bassenge is back with a bouquet of flowers. "Wildflowers" completes her trilogy of trio albums, again with Jacob Karlzon on piano and Andreas Lang on bass - same as on her two previous albums.

“Wildflowers” covers a range of songs that stretches from Dolly Parton to Depeche Mode, from Bob Dylan to Death Cab for Cutie. The way the trio arranges and performs them, these individual pieces don't seem to be thrown together, but rather like chapters of a story. Each one shimmers on its own, but the ensemble is more than the sum of its parts.

This also applies to the trio itself - especially on stage. The two musicians - Jacob Karlzon from Sweden and Andreas Lang from Denmark - embed Lisa Bassenge's unique voice in a warm sound that is ‘Scandinavian’ in the best sense of the word: relaxed but always engaging; playful, dynamic, full of subtle energy. "This sound has found us", says Lisa Bassenge.

Live review
"Karlzon, for example, knows how to give the pieces a completely unpretentious sense of atmosphere - and Lang, too, stands out more for the infectious enthusiasm with which he handles his instrument than for attention-grabbing sleight of hand. Without question, all three musicians could also impress the audience with their craftsmanship. The fact that they don't do so for the sake of the songs makes their performance great art - and the evening a pleasure."

  • "Auf "Borrowed and Blue" zeigt sich die Berlinerin visuell wie stilistisch ungekünstelt. Nur Bass und Klavier stützen das eindrucksvolle Gerüst, das Bassenge kraft ihrer Stimme baut." (Kulturnews 2018/10)
