liner notes: Music unfolding from a nameless planet.
The songs sail forth, the instrumental sounds of Roli Wesp on piano and Klemens Pliem on saxophones and flute intertwining into a mellifluous, buoyant, ocean-like surface. Katja Cruz’s voice, like a vessel, glides over the waves while at the same time being their cause. Pure, clear, with delicate vigour. In a word: Purity. Over the course of more than 72 minutes, a crystal clear, fluently proud yet fragile hymn to the utopia of an innocent world unfolds. “Peaceful Warrior”, “Precious”, “In My Dream” – three of the 16 songs originating from Cruz’s “No Name Planet”: For a world of tenderness, of fervour and of drift. A song of love and lament, a battle cry within a field of beauty.
