Away Again (Lejos). Music: Han Litz / Lyrics: Orlando Mino Verse 1: Lejos, soy reflejo de un espejo alla cruzando el mar lejos soy el eco de los pasos que he de andar Chorus: como arana la distancia va tejiendo su Nostalgia y me enreda el perfume de la soledad, de la soledad Piano solo Verse 2: Lejos, soy ausencia soy un huco en algun corazon grises transparencias que me tinen la voz Repeat chorus End vamp

about

In 2012 the debut album of sambajazzfunk flutist Han Litz has been released on CD and in spring 2013 it has been released digitally as well. Epiphany is a fresh mix of jazz, Brazil, samba grooves, flute funk and modern dance. It showcases each of the musician’s singular sound and colours—as well as their ability to play for the greater good.

"These musical friends obviously had a great time making Litz’s dream come true while recording this album in a German farmhouse ‘in the middle of nowhere’. Soulful jazz and Brazilian samba form the basis. Litz is very happy with the results: ‘Musicianship is more than playing an instrument. It’s about being part of a strong and synergetic group of the right open-minded people. Together, our individual qualities form a whole.'

Sjeng Stokkink (Jazzism review)
This must be a divine revelation". "The control and harmony that astray from this music is both touching and overwhelming, besides that Litz is a master on his instruments". "....impressive debut that would easily fit on an international label like Blue Note or Verve."

“The compositions of Han Litz have a deep airiness over them with a lot of surprising and exciting directions and layers. A beautiful debut.”
