Lines for Ladies

‘Lines for Ladies’, a spirited and intoxicating programme of female jazz at its best, is a meeting of the two German thoroughbred jazz singers Anne Czichowsky and Sabine Kühlich and the German-Turkish piano virtuoso Laia Genc – these three ladies don’t only match perfectly on stage, they also come along excellently off stage. After a spectacular debut at the ‘Int. Women in Jazz Festival’ in Halle (Germany) in february 2014, the ladies are touring and scatting across Europe, on a soulful journey remembering the New York jazzclubs of the 50ies.
Anne Czichowsky and Sabine Kühlich are worldwide renowned vocalists and highly skilled improvisers, their list of awards speaks for itself: Sabine won the Shure Montreux Vocal Competition in 2008, Anne won the Int. Jazz Singer Contest Lady Summertime 2008 and the jazz award of Baden-Württemberg in 2011, one of the most prestigious jazz awards in Germany. Laia Genc currently lives in Istanbul, having received a scholarship of the city of Cologne, she’s composing her next album. She brings a french touch and highly developed interplay into this project. For having made her own mark on the European jazz scene in the last ten years, she was awarded with e.g. the Cologne Jazz Prize in 2007. In October 2014, the three ladies will be touring with jazz legend Sheila Jordan and the vocalist and bassist Kristin Korb.
The repertoire of „Lines for Ladies“ reflects the female point of view: It’s not about „swingin’ till the girls come home“, but „swingin’ till the guys come home“, „line for lyons“ are turned into joyful „lines for ladies“, and of course „shiny stockings“ also play an important role, those are combined with a brand-new evening dress, throughout lady-like. The three ladies compose, improvise and arrange “lines for ladies” and interact on stage with an incredibly swinging easiness – even on high heels.
