Mariea Antoinette – All My Strings

In the field of smooth jazz, the harp undoubtedly has a unique position. The harp is not unknown to jazz, as there have been jazz interpreters on the harp before such as Dorothy Ashby or Alice Coltrane. However, it is only through Mariea Antoinette that the harp comes back into the public eye.

Mariea had her first success with the debut album Sexy Paradise (2003). Only later followed by her albums Straight From The Harp (2014) and All My Strings (2020).

On her new album Mariea works together with producer Allan Phillips, who plays drums, bass, keyboards and guitar, has written and arranged four songs of the album and also produced her project. As further musicians are to be mentioned Derek Cannon (trumpet), John Rekevics (tenor and baritone sax), Dan Regan (trombone), Alex Al (bass), Jordan Morita (trombone), Evan Marks (guitar), Mark Hunter (bass), Kevin Koch (drums), Tommy Aros (percussion), and the AP AllStars Strings.
