Berlin-based Swiss vocalist Lucia Cadotsch returns with her celebrated Speak Low trio for their second album, released by We Jazz Records on 27 Nov. "Speak Low II" features Cadotsch on voice, Otis Sandsjö on tenor saxophone and Petter Eldh on double bass, and introduces guest artists Kit Downes on hammond organ and Lucy Railton on cello. "Speak Low II" picks up where their genre-bending and forward-looking debut album left off, introducing new shades into the band's sound and also diving even deeper into the songs they tackle. What makes Speak Low special is their approach to really get to the heart of each composition with seemingly minimal means, yet generating a sound which is both instantly recognisable and remarkably impactful.
The second single to appear ahead of the album is a hauntingly beautiful take on the track "Wild Is the Wind", written by Dimitri Tiomkin and Ned Washington for the 1957 film of the same name and immortalised by Nina Simone and David Bowie. The Speak Low version adds another layer, whispering the song into the storm that is 2020. The track features the ECM recording organist Kit Downes expanding the core trio's sound.
