Michaela Rabitsch & Robert Pawlik
With Moods we now present our 3rd common CD – and the first with exclusively original compositions. A lot of our songs are composed together in interaction – a fact that helped to build our unique sound. On doublebass we joined Karl Sayer, with whom we work together now for more than 4 years on a regular basis. All the drums are played by Joris Dudli with whom we play together whenever his busy schedule allowes it. Three songs (Afrika, Quartual Guitar Madness and Put it in the Pocket) we recorded with Albert Kreuzer on electric bass. Kornél Horváth, whom we met first at Haskovo Jazz Festival Sepember 2006, where we shared the bandstand, enriches three songs (In silent Moments, Afrika, Put it in the pocket) with his colourful percussionplay.
