Reviews about On Air On Water:
“With each track of On Air On Water (…) Britta Rex gives a glimpse into her soul, sings sometimes in German,
sometimes in English, very personal, almost philosophically tinged poetic lyrics.
In addition, her jazz trio plays grandiose driving, but sometimes also restrained tender, which allows Rex freedom to shine with her scat skills.
Olaf Maikopf, Jazzthetik 05/06-2021
“The songs are a reflection of a ten-year process in which the singer and composer sensitively illuminates moods and feelings. Thus, the lyrics form the emotional center of the songs.
Whether in English or (even more convincingly) in German, Britta Rex captures snapshots,
that lead to life wisdom without know-it-all attitude. (…)
Lyrically strongest is “Mondlicht”, oscillating between sadness, melancholy and confidence.
Rex sings very expressively throughout.”
