After the great success of her first album comprised of Shakespeare sonnets and, lest we forget, the celebrated concert at last year's Shakespeare festival, Caroll Vanwelden steps up with a novel album of composed and arranged sonnets.

Her superb combo featuring Thomas Siffling, trumpet and flugelhorn, Mini Schulz, bass, Rodrigo Villalon, drums and percussion, as well as Jo Ambros on the guitar provide the groundwork for her congenial Shakespearian compositions, which she herself accompanies on the piano, transforming them into groovy jazzy melodies.
Respectful, cool and hip.
