Marion & Sobo Band - Gomera - A gipsy style tribute to the island of Gomera with great singer Marion Lenfant-Preus and guitarist Alexander "Sobo" Sobocinski - On their last album "Histoires", Marion Lenfant-Preus, Alexander "Sobo" Sobocinski and their fellow musicians already brought these new colours to life in rousing musical stories and brought "the sound of Django Reinhardt into the present in a poppier way than ever before", as Jazzthing magazine wrote. On their new album "Gomera", the palette is even more colourful. As the title suggests, it is dedicated to the scenically and culturally diverse Canary Island, where the two have spent many winters since 2016 and collected many song ideas. They both love nature and hiking, they incorporate the emotions and feelings of their travels from Cuba to Colombia - and often to the Canary Islands - into their music and lyrics and curiously seek a different view of the world. What could be more inspiring than the overwhelming landscapes of the volcanic island of Gomera? Of course, the biographies of the protagonists are also condensed in the polyphony of the Marion & Sobo band. Marion Lenfant-Preus has an American father and a French mother and thus grew up in France with the best of both worlds, with Ella Fitzgerald's scat and jazz singing and the harmonies and melodies of US jazz as well as Django Reinhardt's percussive guitar sound and it's ingredients of European classical music, Jewish klezmer and Balkan music. Alexander "Sobo" Sobocinski grew up in Poland and began playing guitar at the age of 15, initially influenced by the fusion bands of the seventies. During his studies in the Netherlands, he discovered his passion for gypsy jazz and focussed more on the acoustic guitar. With their third album "Gomera", the band proves once and for all that handmade, acoustic music can not only be delicate, contemplative and colourful, but also highly energetic and powerful, even without drums. And thus creates a new gypsy jazz that embraces the world.
