Sophisticated Lady (2015)

Ellington, Mann, Mellin, Silver, Evans, Maschwitz, Shorter, Landesman, de Geyn, Waldron, Haden, Davis

Hein van de Geyn, Bert van den Brink, Wilma Thalen

On 'Sophisticated Lady' Thalen plays jazz standards in their most vulnerable form, only accompanied by pianist Bert van den Brink and Hein van de Geyn on double bass. Her violin mainly sticks with the original melody and does not immediately flee towards the usual improvisation.  In a frank and honest fashion Thalen wants to make these songs heard as they are. This seems cushy and in a first hearing, the music may sound quite accessible.  But apart from the fact that nowadays it isn't common to play mainly the melody, the plainness of this approach appears to be fairly misleading.
