CORTIJO ON PERCUSSIONS AND THE PIANIST SHAI MAESTRO.

 

"RECIPES" IS A MENU FOR LIFE AND AVA HAS ONE FOR EVERY MOOD AND SITUATION - LIKE AN EVENING WITH GOOD FRIENDS, WHERE EVERYONE ORDERS SOMETHING DIFFERENT FROM THE MENU AND ALL COLLECTIVELY TRY IT.

"HAPPY MUSIC, FROM HAPPY PEOPLE,

TO MAKE PEOPLE HAPPY", SAYS AVA CHARLIE WHEN ASKED ABOUT HER MUSIC.

 

COMING FROM A FAMILY OF MUSICIANS, AVA HAS BEEN ON STAGE FOR 15 YEARS, CAPTIVATED OVER 3000 LISTENERS IN THE SUPPORT OF THE BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB AND WON, IN ADDITION TO THE SPECIAL PRIZE OF THE BRANDENBURG CULTURAL FESTIVAL (2019) AND THE PALATINATE PRIZE FOR COMPOSITION (2014), THE INTERNATIONAL JAZZ AND POP SINGING COMPETITION IN FINSTERWALDE TWICE IN A ROW (2017 & 2019).

 

"IT'S A PLEASURE TO WATCH HER SING - SHE DIVES INTO THE LYRICS AND MUSIC, SOMETIMES SOMNAMBULISTIC, WHEN HER HANDS FLOAT GENTLY AS IF THEY WANTED TO CARESS THE AIR" (MAZ). IN HER MUSIC, SHE ARTFULLY COMBINES TRADITION AND MODERNITY INTO LIGHT, FEATHERY JAZZ. HER INSPIRATIONS ARE TAKEN FROM REAL LIFE - PERSONAL EXPERIENCES, THE IMPRESSIONS OF HER JOURNEYS, BUT ALSO THE SMALL THINGS IN LIFE ARE WHAT MAKES HER COMPOSITIONS AND LYRICS SO LIFELIKE.


LIVE SHE IS ACCOMPANIED BY HER TRIO: "LUKAS MORIZ'S PIANO TICKLES YOUR EARS LIKE ICE-COLD CHAMPAGNE ON YOUR TONGUE" (MAZ AFTER THEIR FIRST TOUR AS PART OF THE BRANDENBURG CULTURAL FESTIVAL (2020)). ALSO WITH HER: BASTIAN WEINIG (BASS PLAYER OF THE HR JAZZ ENSEMBLE AND SCHOLARSHIP HOLDER OF THE GERMAN MUSIC COUNCIL) AND AXEL PAPE, LONGTIME DRUMMER OF JAZZ LEGEND EMIL MANGELSDORFF.

LIVE SNIPPET OF
"LA LINGUA DELLA CUCINA"

 

THIS SONG IS ABOUT A COOKING CLASS I TOOK IN PUGLIA, ITALY, IN AN OUTDOOR KITCHEN SURROUNDED BY BEAUTIFUL PINE TREES. WE WERE TAUGHT HOW TO MAKE ORECCHIETTE (A TYPE OF PASTA NAMED AFTER ITS RESEMBLANCE TO "LITTLE EARS"), "CICERI E TRIA" - A PASTA DISH WITH CHICKPEAS AND BAY LEAVES, AND MY ALL TIME FAVORITE "PASTA ALLA PUTTANESCA" - BASED ON FRESH TOMATOES, OLIVES, CAPERS AND BASIL.
