Voice & double bass

 

 

“An amazing concert. Experimentation. We are in an urban jungle. We are in a bar. We are on the roof of a building in London. We are on a street, and the music is with us. As long as there are voices like Sascha’s and instruments such as Laurent's, everything will be fine.”

JAZZTHING in November

Sascha Ley is a multiple talent: actress, director, and of course jazz vocalist. In the duo with the French bassist Laurent Payfert, she designs a fascinating modern jazz with a multifaceted alto voice. 11/16 Martin Laurentius

 

CONCERT REVIEW :: FESTIVAL JAZZ EN SOL MINEUR :: Longwy (France) August 16

To see and to listen to Sascha Ley and Laurent Payfert in concert, is really something. On one side: a woman, singer, composer and actress, in short a complete artist, who shares a great pleasure with the audience to exploring her voice and bending it in every direction. On the other: a man and his other half, the double bass, which he knows by heart. From compositions extracted from their album "The Wee Hours" to covers and frenzied improvisations: you leave a concert by Sascha Ley and Laurent Payfert with balm for your soul. The audience does not want to cease their applause and eventually leaves the auditorium, entranced. Kévin Kroczek, LAND Kultur 08/26/16 (read more)

 

ALBUM REVIEWS

In case you know Sascha Ley, you will know what to expect from this CD. The Saarbrücken born vocal artist from Luxembourg, who also works as an actress and composer, is – if one may say so – without parallel in Europe. Melodious, expressive and with stunning lyrics (three of which can be found on the cover). Of course she makes ample use of her voice, not only when reciting/singing the lyrics, but also in order to perform them in a moving manner; in every respect an extraordinary singer and musician. She is accompanied by the bass player Laurent Payfert and thereby connected to the entire spectrum of acoustic music this enchanting solo artist stands for. There is a lot of storytelling, acting and improvisation involved in each of these songs. Here we find music and drama combined in a unique way. 11/15 Hans-Jürgen von Osterhausen JAZZ PODIUM (D)
