Germana entered the studio together with long time collaborator, Sam Leak on Hammond organ and heavy weight stalwarts of the London jazz scene, Nick Costley-White on guitar and Jay Davis on drums.
Together they have created a modern, open and sophisticated album, fully tuned in to the current wave of contemporary UK jazz. The album is both intense and laid-back, groove heavy, rich in electrifying moments and full to the brim with captivating melodies.
'Vapour' contains both original compositions and her unique take on two compositions by Frank Zappa and Hermeto Pascoal, two artists that have been vital to forming her compositional approach.
Also appearing on this set is La Sorsa’s reimagining of the Victor Young and Edward. Heyman song, “When I fall in Love”, released as the first single of the album.
In its style and conception, the music contained on Vapour is very eclectic, steeped in modern and contemporary sounds with a nod to the avant-garde.
Vapour is now available on all major platforms. Stream the album here.
