Deborah Schneebeli Morrell: Le high life

Here’s the world brought home to the rag and bone shop of the heart and made welcome, manageable, lovable even, without ceasing to be itself in all its strangeness and grandeur.
Gillian Allnut on Thirty Poems

She has an unselfish gift – her subject is usually other people rather than herself, other people seen through loving eyes, other people lost and mourned with open hearted grief. These are moving, beautiful poems.

Vladivostok to Moscow CD cover

Vladivostok to Moscow
An original composition recorded by Jehane Markham Trio, it evokes images and memories inspired by a seven-day train journey on the Trans Siberian railway across the length of Siberia. Drawing on the sound-worlds of contemporary gypsy jazz, Russian folk and classical music, this is harmonious jazz with integrated speech and song rhythms adding structure and form to a dream-like narrative.

London series CD cover

The London Series
The London Series is a collection of jazz-poems inspired by a life lived in the capital. The poems are juxtaposed by sections of prose, underscored by double bass and piano.
A hybrid of words and jazz about love and London from a personal perspective, the piece was recorded at The Lodge Studios in 2009. The first in The London Series, this elliptical narrative pays homage to different parts of North London as well some of the writers who once lived there.
Part memory, part fiction, this is an energetic composition with a blues feel.
Running time: 20.6; also Frank Sinatra (3.47) and The Rainy Season (3.49)
