Info for Horse I Used to Ride (Live in 2001)

The legendary concert from 2001 at which Sara K. and Günter Pauler met for the first time - and the years of collaboration began. Sara is accompanied on five tracks by Chris Jones, whose encounter also resulted in wonderful recordings.

On 6 April 2001, Sara K. made a guest appearance in Sülbeck, Lower Saxony, near the beer town of Einbeck, as part of her tour of Germany at the time. The inn "Zum Esel" may be remote, but it is an insider's tip for friends of jazz, singer-songwriter guild, acoustic music and much more. David Lindley, Ringsgwandel, Ralph Towner have already performed here - it is impossible to list all the greats of the decade-long concert scene in the "Esel".

Sülbeck's proximity to Northeim suggested a lively contact with Stockfisch Records. So sometimes foreign artists were lent instruments for the concert, or Günter Pauler took care of the sound system from time to time. And since Pauler - as so often - had also brought his mobile recording equipment to the Esel, he asked Sara K. after the sound check if he could record the concert. Sara agreed - and played a fascinating programme that more than thrilled the audience.

They arranged to meet the following day at the Stockfisch Studio in Northeim. Sara K. was extremely impressed by the studio in the historic cellar, its extravagant furnishings and the professional technology. And it became clear to her that Günter Pauler not only runs a recording studio, but is also a passionate label boss and producer.

Back in the USA, Sara K. received a CD by post from Northeim. On it was the mixed concert recording - with some titles supplemented by restrained solos on the Dobro: recorded by none other than Chris Jones, whom Günter Pauler had asked for this favour on the occasion of a studio visit. Sara K. was not only overwhelmed by the good sound quality of the recording, but especially taken with Chris Jones' guitar playing.

"... a document that shows all the protagonists in top form, Sara K. sings her heart out with her distinctive murmuring voice, intense and authentic, just as you know her. Günter Pauler did a top job on the console: precision, immediacy, power characterise the recording". (stereoplay)

"Secondly, he had his buddy Chris Jones contribute subtle dobro tones on five songs, including the poignant "What's A Little More Rain". Exactly what he sent to Sara in the US at the time is now available on remastered - fine stuff." (Good Times)

Sara K.
ist eine Klasse für sich. Diese Sängerin verfügt über die seltene Gabe, den Zuhörer emotional zu packen, allein mit ihrer spontanen und intensiven Ausstrahlung, der man kaum widerstehen kann. Alle Alben, die sie eingespielt hat, erhielten hochkarätige Auszeichnungen sowie mehrere Jazz-Awards.

Wer Sara K. je gehört hat weiß, warum sie von der deutschen HiFi-Presse zur Queen of Audiophile erkoren wurde. Mit aufregender Stimme und vier(!)saitiger Gitarre besetzt sie eine ungewöhnliche musikalische Nische, die auf der Welt ebenso einmalig ist wie die Geschichten, die sie singt. Sara K. hat sie selbst erlebt, ist mittendrin und erzählt. Warm, persönlich und berührend.

Die Karriere der in Santa Fe, New Mexico lebenden Singer/Songwriterin begann 1990 mit der Veröffentlichung von Closer Than They Appear auf dem audiophilen Label Chesky. Bis 2001 blieb sie Chesky treu und veröffentlichte dort weitere 6 Alben. 2002 wechselte sie zu der deutschen Klangschmiede Stockfisch, auf dem sie bisher weitere 5 Alben veröffentlicht hat. Ihre Alben erhielten allesamt nicht nur von der HiFi-Presse hochkarätige Auszeichnungen, mehrere Alben wurden mit einem Jazz-Award belohnt (Tell Me I’m not Dreaming, Hobo, Water Falls) - und nicht zu vergessen: das „Goldene Audio-Ohr 1994“ für Play on Words.

"Her beautiful writing is something one must experience themselves. Her high sweet but dirty voice is one not to pass up. Her unique style of guitar and music in general is one to take her much further than following the crowd would." - BLUES ON STAGE
