‘Sari Schorr’


Sari Schorr – Never Say Never -cd – Manhaton

Sari Schorr implemented the title of her second opus “Never Say Never“ into real action before she recorded it live at The Grange Studios in Norfolk (UK).  She changed the producer and chose Henning Gehrke; he was also by many of the titles a co-songwriter. Also she felt the time was appropriate for a new band-lineup – Ash Wilson – guitar; Bob Fridzema – Hammond & keboyards; Mat Beable – bass and Roy Martin on drums.  Sari‘s phenomenal voice was already ever so stunning by her first strike “A Force Of Nature“ and her live-charisma on the following tours. Many fans loved her old band and had some skepticism when she accounced her new bandmates. Hey folks “Never Say Never“ and listen first to it and enjoy it without prejudice!

“King Of Rock And Roll“ as first tune electrifies by the swampy intro musically. When Sari sets in with here canto she sings utmost soulful, before it turns heavy blues-rockin‘.  Sari is absolutely on fire by her voice in the middle passage and Ash contributes by his solos a new, fresh guitar sound by creativity.  A hooky blues-harp outro concludes the song. Hellish hot opening culmination. „Thank You“ as second title manifests that Sari is much more into rock by mood by her second recording and Ash lets his axe talk by some wah-wah effects. Maximum track-explosivity… The cover-version of „Ready For Love“ written by Mick Ralphs continues the legacy of Bad Company by their highlight period.  Very special and loveable would have been a vocal-duet together with Paul Rodgers. Sari interprets the songs with her own passion. Bob is in the spotlight by his e-piano-solos  as master-key-magus. He is an absolute top-enrichment as lord oft he keys! „Valentina“ has the Memphis soul-sound of Stax by groovy, funky basis-rhythms by Mat and Roy. Sari and band, specially Wilson by his gitarrero-fervidness  make it spicy and chili-hot by their heavy rockin‘ jam. By “The New Revolution“ Sari continues the vocal-legacy of Anna Mae Bullock aka Tina Turner. This struttin‘ Rock’N Roller‘ will be definitely a live-highlight. The refrains will invite the freaks to sing along most powerfully as background-choir, besides flipping out by dancing.  “Beautiful“ is as ballad to be characterized as “Over The Rainbow“. It features the flamboyant mélange of emotion andd passion, without being too sentimental by Sari’s singing. Mister Wilson’s guitar-escapade renders tribute to the legendary Gary Moore. Dreadful-magnificent climax of “Never Say Never“! “Turn The Radio On“ has absolutely hit-character to enter the single charts. The melodies and vocals are spreading a gospelous atmosphere and positive mood. This song will make your morning, day or soirée bright and happy at whatever time or wherever you are. By “Freedom“ Sara and musicos are rockin‘ again, a song predestinated as highway-anthem. Every musician manifests his virtuosity, but specially Bob and Ash are killin‘ it musically by their duels. Sari sings ever so hot-blooded to keep the demoniac bogey away from her angelic soul!  By the title song „Never Say Never“ written by Ian McLagan the high-priestess Schorr concludes the album by peaceful, laid-back and meditative mood.

Maestro Gehrke did hell of a job as producer; he created a sensational, crystal-clear sound for all songs. He defntitely had the especialness and precise feeling to maintain a rockin‘ roughness and sensitiveness  whenever being suitable.

“Never Say Never“ is definitely one of the bluesrockin‘ masterpieces of 2018 by diversity with female voice. If the other blues divas sound too smooth by your gusto the flame of ecstasy will be lighting fierily by lady Schorr’s chant. Music devotees of all genres will be captured by the eleven songs from their very first listening.

Sari Schorr performs absolutely in the top-league of female artists.

 Her musical star shines brighter than bright at the nightly firmament by “Never Say Never“*****

Sari Schorr – “A Force Of Nature” – cd – Manhaton Records – #2044

The music year 2016 is nearing its end. Time for an end  résumé, in detail for the female blues-scene! There has been several ladies, gifted with great voices directing into the balladesque song-styles, as it seems out of commercial interests… Rather boring if this is even proceeded by consecutive albums. There has been one outstanding relatively new artist – Sari Schorr! She is ever so gifted as songwriter and off course by her sensational voice! She can be the soft feline to purr, but loves to be mostly by her exploding voice also the snarling pantera.  She even is versatile by opera chant. For her debut cd “A Force Of Nature” on Manhaton Records she put her spell on producer icon Mike Vernon during her performance at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, USA. He has done a hellacious sound-job. His famous cooperators were legends like Fleetwood Mac, JohnMayall, Eric Clapton and even David Bowie. She also trapped axe-guy Innes Sibun, who played for Robert Plant, for her cd-recording and even more illuminating permanently in her tour-band – TheEngine Room. Other famous guitarists on her cd were Walter Trout and Oli Brown (Ravenlord). 

If you are still looking for a blues-rock cd to keep you away from any depressive winter feelings this must be the hot tip as gift for you for Santa Clause!

Are you ready to get some blues-rock- magic for your Christmas or New Eve soirées by the one and only Sari Schorr???

“Ain’t Got No Money”  is a half ballad, but hell of a unique one! Innes manifests his sensitive guitar-artistry by his solos and the voice by Sari is ever so seductive. Her octave-voice-volume is just sensational. “Aunt Hazel” starts with stompy drums- by Jose Mena and bass-rhythms-grooves by Nani Conde the calypso-reggae style with spicy percussion plays on top by Mike, but quickly develops into a an excessive and wild power-blues-rock-jam.  The powerful voice of Sari is ever so full of dynamite and Ines kicks-ass on guitar. What a fiery extravaganza as start! The song-repertoire is ever so diversified by style, so “Cat & Mouse” is a funky blues-rock cracker, suiting to the “Big Apple”, as Sari is from New York. The absolute highlight of the cd is the consecutive newly arranged version of the Leadbelly classic “Black Betty”. It starts slowly, with a gospel-soul touch oriented towards the original, but develops quickly and stunningly into an individual melancholic blues-rock jam with individual character, not the southern-style you may have expected. Lady Schorr’s vocal acrobatics is absolutely shiny and starry. She sings ever so full of explosiveness to keep the lord of the pandemonium away from her soul. The same does Ines by his furious axe-solos, before it calms down again to conclude the Sunday church-sermon Mississippi cotton-blues style. “Work No More” is a hot Chicago Blues with mister Trout on lead-guitar and dueling as top-notch with Innes the hellish vein. By “Oklahoma” Sari & her special guest Oli Brown on six-string manifest their variety by this jazz-blues. “Letting Go” is a hooky burlesque-vaudeville blues, Lady Schorr sings like a reminiscence to the icon Screamin’ JayHawkins. Her voice is raunchy and utmost seductive. As Innes is from Great Britain a British-Blues is presented by “Stop! In The Name Of Love”, the voice versus guitar duell is far over the top. “Ordinary Life” is the last tune of the cd the empathic style with beautiful piano-solos by JesusLavillas. Sari’s voice is ever so soulful. A song-tip for your upcoming Christmas-dinner. The amazing grand-final spreading harmony, peace and love!
