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.
