StrangeFlow It's hard to say why I love this album - maybe because it's masterful musicianship? (hell yeah) - maybe because I really dig gypsy jazz (oh yeah) - maybe because it gives me the same vibes as the Spongebob Production Music. Favorite track: Stardust.

rbinperson Wow! I own all of MARBIN's albums, and I never would have suspected a "standards" release, but what a delight it is! Tracks like "All of Me," "Stardust," "Honeysuckle Rose," and more... all done with that distinctive swinging-fusion style that only MARBIN can do. Excellent stuff. Even your grandma will like it! Favorite track: Stardust.

BJ Outstanding! Love to hear a modern bands take on jazz standards. Caps off a great diverse run of Marbin releases. Russian Dolls, Ten Years & now Fernweh really show Marbin has a deep bench of talent & creativity. Seems to only get better & Keeps you smiling. Favorite track: Stardust.

Carsten Pieper Not the usual Marbin album this one: No original pieces but their versions of 10 standards. Gypsy Swing instead of Morricone-Tarantino western fusion funk, served as a trio (Dani and Danny, of course, joined by Jon Badle on bass). Different, yes, highly entertaining, nonetheless. This would have been a great album to listen to with my dear daddy-in-law were he still among us... It speaks for the high quality of the music, that my son also loves it :-) Favorite track: Dark Eyes.

about

Fernweh, a German word for wanderlust that means specifically to be homesick for a place you've never been, is the perfect name for Marbin's 12th album, which focuses exclusively on jazz standards. Because these songs were written so long ago, and their origins span several continents, each and every song connects you to a different place and time—most of which are not places or time periods any of us have actually experienced.

For people who are only superficially familiar with Marbin's extensive catalogue, this album seems like it came out of left field. After all, Marbin is known for their fiery, hard hitting, take-no-prisoners, all original jazz-rock-fusion, and this album is an all-acoustic traditional gypsy-swing album. However, Marbin fans know Rabin and Markovitch's roots remain deep within the jazz tradition, specifically within gypsy-jazz and swing. This album will be a listening staple for. Marbin fans, who have been waiting for an album like this for many years; it will also be of interest to any fans of Django Reinhardt, Louis Armstrong, Sidney Bechet, and jazz lovers in general.

Dani Rabin tells us about the album: "It was important to us to arrange and play the music in a way that is faithful to the original spirit of the songs, and at the same time push the boundaries of how this music was played.”

Danny Markovitch expands: "This album is not Dani and Danny playing like Reinhardt and Bechet, like many of these albums tend to be, but us playing music that we love ourselves, just within the boundaries and limitations of the appropriate harmonic, rhythmic and sonic of the style."
