Malia sings Nina Simone! Already with the albums Yellow Daffodils and Young Bones inspired the singer a few years ago the fans in Europe, especially in France and Germany they took the time notice of the beautiful young woman with North African and British roots. The fleet-footed blend of jazz, pop and soul went easy on the ear and remained, not least through video clips such as "My Purple Shoes" long in the memory. After an extended maternity leave Malia is finally back. And surprises all along the line as brilliant jazz talent. Your version of a Nina Simone tribute is everything you could want: Wonderful insinuating elegantly arranged in Slow Motion, thematically into the present and, above all sung with a jazz voice that is second to none. Nothing will deter the critics, Black Orchid as one of the most important vocal jazz albums of the year to celebrate, because artistic beauty, outstanding talent and musical sophistication come here in an absolutely ravishing way together.
