Music by George Gershwin and Duke Ellington - great music in a small line-up with the trio Catfish Row.

At the center of catfish row is the charismatic and changeable voice of jazz singer ANETT LEVANDER, who is accompanied by CHRISTIAN RAAKE on saxophone/flute and DIRK STEGLICH on bass clarinet.

The Berlin trio catfish row - named after the street made famous as the setting for the opera "Porgy and Bess" - interprets compositions by George Gershwin, born in New York in 1898, and Duke Ellington, born in Washington, D.C. in 1899.

Large orchestration, lush piano chords, richly orchestrated jazz melodies that have long since become standards - how can two woodwinds and a female vocalist reproduce all that?
The answer lies in the sophisticated arrangements of catfish row. But not too much should be revealed here: Listen for yourself how, in this trio arrangement, the music of both composers - stripped back to its essentials, resounds transparently and in all its sensuality!
