Appealing fusion of world and jazz music from
With Voyagers we present our 4th common CD which is inspired by the numerous tours of the last years through Europe, Asia and Africa. These impressions are reflected in the compositions and create a refreshing melange of Jazz, World and Fusion.
Voyagers has just about everything one could ask for in a contemporary release with flavor off the charts, a smoking hot band, and rock solid tunes. Technically proficient and artistically gifted but perhaps most importantly...Voyagers is incredibly entertaining! Brent Black, Critical Jazz, USA, 5*****!
This is an innovative jazz disc, bright, precise, and most of all, diabolically up tempo! Jazzreview

Midwest Record Recap
Michaela Rabitsch - singer and Austria's only female top jazz trumpet player and her ingenius partner - guitarist Robert Pawlik are presenting Jazz with catchy melodies, strong harmonies, groovy rhythms and adventorious improvisations in a fine balanced vocal – instrumental mix, either as a quartet or as a duo. They attract even people, who normally don't like jazz, with their music.
Their new program is inspired by their numerous tours of the last years through Europe, Asia, Africa and America. They pick off the most interesting elements and inspirations from different musical cultures and contrast them with their own musical background and create a refreshing new musical melange.
"One seldom equates Austria with having any significant jazz talent, outside of Joe Zawinul, but Moods, by Michaela Rabitsch and Robert Pawlik, proves conclusively that jazz lives on in Austria".
