We step into a soft and intense aura ... Tamara can capture the audience and take them to her wonderworld. This is pure jazz with a feeling, both modern and classic, with many references and persuasive technique all the while. (Claire Jalmain, Crest, France, 2017)
I HAVE COME HERE TO WHISPER SOMETHING
String quartet and piano duet, saxophone. Remove the battery, remove the bass, and suddenly ... you are listening to an inner jazz. A jazz that reveals itself instead of showing of. Break the codes, mix the sounds timbers, propose an improvisation serving the melody, and then, the music will be presented in a different light.
