NOLA  - Portrait of a Lady
„Outstanding: it was a pleasure!“  said Pianist Marco di Gennaro  (New York) after having  performed with vocalist Marijke Jährling  in New York City. „Very well done“ commented Jazz-pianist Bob Degen (USA/Germany) on the album „Portrait of a Lady" of her Jazz-band NOLA. Here the german/dutch vocalist works as a leader for the first time and is responsible for all arrangements.  It’s an intimate musical approach to the life and  the experiences  of  the  wonderful  Lady Day,  who,  in her particular musical narrative way of singing, even transformed  the  hits of the 1930s and 40 into  stories of blues. With an unerring sense of authenticity, sensitive  painting of tone colors and atmospheres and in her original way of phrasing vocalist Marijke Jährling underlines  the modernity of all arrangements.  With Steffen Müller-Kaiser on saxophone and clarinet she found a congenial partner who perfectly reflects the lyrics with his slender, multi-faceted tone . Highly talented young pianist Lukas Moriz is constantly creating modern accents and necessary breaks while the warm sound of  Rudolf Stenzinger on bass is  gently pulsating and carries the band with unobtrusive ease. In this line, which has no drums, a lot of space remains for the personal sound of the excellent musicians which creates an intimate, almost chamber-musical sound. This homage to the pioneer of the jazz-singing Billie Holiday (April 7, 1915) refers to titles Holiday was involved as a composer / lyricist, and which tell a lot about her life story, such as the magnificent "Strange Fruit".

 Press Review
"Fantasticly  commemorated  melancholy"  Rüsselsheimer Echo, Jan Stich
“An evening you won`t forget: "Lover Man", "Lady Sings the Blues", "All of me" -  NOLA  spreads them  as shimmering  pearls  to the the  audience. Marijke Jährling interprets the famous and also lesser known songs (...)  sometimes in a supercool way, then defiant, or passionately, such  as Billie Holiday's worldwide success in 1939 "Strange Fruit" (...) and  thereby again she will prove her respectable vocal range"  Sigrid Jahn, Starkenburger Echo
"What a cute thing grows here in Hessen" Günther Hottmann, Radio HR2, Jazz Now
"musically-vocally a mature performance, supported by this jazz trio that plays really very sensitive and with the necessary swing." Radio HR2 , Martin Grunenberg
"Marijke Jährling  not only gives her voice but also her soul to great  classics like "That Ole Devil Called Love" or "Them There Eyes" She effortlessly made both come alive, melancholic ballads and upbeat numbers,  due to her great voice and her skills as an actor.” Rhein-Main-Spitze, Sergio Presta



Technical Rider

In smaller venues we prefer an acoustic way of playing, only voice needs PA , if there is a piano

I always carry my Neumann-mikrofon with me 

Catering: Two vegatariens, one milk - and cereals-intolerance (potatoes  vergetables, meat, goets- and sheepcheese are o.k.) and one person who eats quiet next to normal. 

Hotel: please calm,  with pool
