Meryl Leppard is a singer, songwriter and pianist. A master of the soft tone. A singer who tells a story as she sings. In an elegant and mysterious way the adopted New Yorker presents a theatre-like performance to her public.
Together with Gawain Mathews (guitar) Bob Spencer (guitar) Dan Feiszli (double bass) Anna McDonald (violin) Ginetta Minichiello (trumpet) and Micha Patri (drums) the Australian born Meryl Leppard kidnaps us and takes us to her own world of music which is full of images and rich in pictures.
Origami is well known as a Japanese Art, objects are molded from paper to make for example, flowers or animals. They are then used to create complete stories.
Meryl is also telling a story but she does that with her wonderful piano playing and her warm and tender voice, which is not folded up like Origami but is spread out like a big silk umbrella over the audience as she draws the listener slowly into her poetic world. Jazz Dimensions Magazine, Germany
