In Why Is The Sea So Blue Margareth Kammerer continues to explore songs in experimental music contexts, elaborately interweaving lyrics into nine wistful soundscapes. Originally recorded in 2006, with the band consisting of Christof Kurzmann (voice, saxophone), Axel Dörner (trumpet), Burkhard Stangl (vibraphone), Werner Dafeldecker (double bass), Big Daddy Mugglestone (percussion) and Marcello Silvio Busato (drums), the album’s final shape emerged with the production of Valerio Tricoli in 2011, who fashioned them into rich, emotionally versatile tomes. Between the narrative duets with Kurzmann and more extended abstract incantations, the album unravels like a late afternoon walk along a rocky shore, the sky is foreboding but the wind is still warm.
