PRESS FOR "PRIMARY COLOURS"

"Her use of wordless vocals as well as her fine lyrics, and the impeccable arrangements for, and playing of the trio, have made Primary Colours a frequent visitor to my CD player."

- Jazz Views

 

 

“This album is not a collection of songs, but a complete, self-contained whole where every detail counts. There are so many interesting arrangements and instrumental ideas, interesting vocals and instrumental parts that it's impossible to mention them all. This is music to be listened to repeatedly and enjoyed.”

- Jazz-Fun.De

 

 

“An album with a dominating, colourful theme has to hold it together musically from start to finish, which this album does very well.”

- Jazz Journal

“Her poetically interpretive singing...is often dreamy and inspiring… even more so with the adeptly progressive musical accompaniment she gathers here on record.”

- Presto Music

“Germana Stella La Sorsa and her quartet wonderfully portrayed the many layers of ‘Primary Colours’ … layers of which can be found in each and every composition on this impressive album.”

PRESS FOR "VAPOUR"

"Nudging boundaries as she goes, La Sorsa satisfies her sonic curiosity by using her jazz vocal virtuosity in familiar and extraordinary ways to lead her fine ensemble on an exploration of the listenable end of the jazzant-garde, where the wide open spaces and odd turns encourage you to question what you knew."

- The Slow Music Movement

"La Sorsa’s debut is an excellent recording, with exciting originals and inventive takes on well-chosen covers."
- Jazz Journal


"It's a thoughtful, original and very musically satisfying album."
- London Jazz News

"The music is stimulating but never banal, the space between improvisation and written parts is fresh, seamless and the interplay between the musicians is perfectly balanced."
- Jazz in Europe

"I find a nice balance of colour in Germana's album where the use of Sam Leak's Hammond brings warmth and depth while Nick Costley-White's guitar reflects Germana's vocals and brings us some engaging solos, as does Sam Leak. Jay Davis's expressive drums underpin the whole and are really well-balanced in the mix."
