Rabitsch, Michaela & Robert Pawlik
Extraplatte, 2008, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Latin
O’s Notes: Michaela provides vocals and sings through her trumpet as well. Robert plays guitar with Karl Ayer (b) and Juris Dudli (d) forming the core band. They composed all of the music, a set of pleasant Latin ballads and bouncy bossa nova tunes. “Afrika” includes an energizing percussion solo from Kornél Horváth. There is a spirited bounce to “Put it in the Pocket” featuring Pawlik and the swinging “Dance”. It is a good set especially Michaela’s seamless transitions back and forth on vocals and the trumpet.
