Nessi is German Singer Nessi Tausendschoen with Canadian guitar player William MacKenzie. This is their first CD together and they haven’t held back. They have Special guest musicians Harry Manx (slide player) and Kevin Breit (Norah Jones Band).
You can hear the album on the Indie playlist. The album has been described as a minimalistic blend of jazzy, folky, rootsy tunes with a European flavor. That doesn’t give away much and neither would any attempt at a description on my part. What I like about it is it’s very mellow and serene with an underlying dreamlike mysterious side to it in much the same way as some old folklore tales have. Nessi has a captivating voice that has a fantastic range of styles. This the sort of album that grows on you. I had pinned down a few tracks to play but after several listens that task wasn’t so easy as I thought. I’m pretty well hooked on this.
