Michaela Rabitsch, singer, composer, and Austria’s only female top jazz trumpet player is called “a modern day female Chet Baker” by the US magazine, Jazzscene. Michaela and her ingenious partner, composer, and incredibly fluid guitarist, Robert Pawlik, present “Gimme The Groove,” their 6th common studio release and are celebrating 20 years on the road together.
They will be performing jazz with catchy melodies, strong harmonies, groovy rhythms, and adventurous improvisations in a fine balanced vocal-instrumental mix. With brilliant instrumental technique and a silky velvet voice, they are clothing their songs into a trendy, smooth-cool jazzrobe.
Their songs are inspired by numerous years of touring throughout Europe, Asia, the Americas, and Africa, with 1500 concerts in almost 50 countries. They have played in intimate jazz clubs as well as on big stages and at international festivals — from Tokyo to Teheran, Kuala Lumpur to Yerevan, Cape Town to Delhi, Shanghai to Almaty, Hong Kong to Cracow, Havana to Moscow, Chicago to Ottawa, Penang Island to Ankara –Vienna’s “first couple of jazz” presents a diversified and sophisticated musical experience extraordinaire, with their signature sound of Jazz spiced up with a touch of World!
“From Austria they come and this trumpet/guitar led crew just might conquer the world with their sound.” (Chris Spector, Midwest Record Recap, USA)
