„Water is the origin of all things. It´s the substance from which everything emerges and to which all things will return.
– Thales of Miletus
„If jazz has to be termed as a wave, then music is a sea, but if the reflectors in the water is the chord.“ – PAT METHENY
The vocal artist and jazz vocalist Esther Kaiser has taken on a theme for her new album that – as with the widely praised previous album “Songs of Courage” – addresses an important aspect of our time, which is constantly in flux, in which nothing is more constant than the liquid, than the evaporation and liquefaction of everything solid and traditional: Water.
Esther Kaiser therefore takes the ancient and, from today’s perspective, of course not to be taken literally, quote from Thales of Miletus as a poetic-metaphorical image for her album:
“Water is the origin of all things. It´s the substance from which everything emerges and to which all things will return.“
Thus, even the musically and lyrically multifaceted theme of the album repeatedly finds its way back to pure clarity and lightness, despite the shimmering socio-political and climate-related dimension that Kaiser does not disregard in her cleverly nuanced approach.
