Susan Weinert Rainbow Trio
There are still far too few women guitarists in the world of jazz, let alone ones with backgrounds similar to Susan Weinert’s. Her debut album was received with such enthusiasm in the US scene that the Saarland musician was immediately engaged by the fusion supergroup Steps Ahead. As a result, the “first European woman guitarist of international standing” (Jazzpodium) moved away from the harder electric guitar sound.
Weinert, who now plays a custom-made acoustic guitar, recorded her 13thalbum with the unusual trio line-up of piano and double bass. The Susan Weinert Rainbow Trio navigates the waters of jazz, classical and world music with light-footed dexterity. Earthed by the bass of her partner of many decades Martin Weinert and elevated by the lyrical playing of the young pianist Sebastian Voltz, Susan Weinert guarantees a dream-like and uplifting musical experience.
