USA: Akiko Pavolka-Late Parade(2017)

For this album (my sixth as a leader) I wanted to present my music in a different setting than my long-time working band House Of Illusion has provided. My friend and producer Guillermo Klein and I had the idea of stripping things down to just the essentials, to let the songs really speak for themselves. Most of the tracks are just me and a piano and my wonderful bassist and drummer with Guillermo filling things out here and there as needed. Luis BacquƩ did an incredible job capturing our dynamic in the studio. This also is the first release from my own label Aklovap Records. I'm really pleased with the results and I hope that you will share these moments with me
