Eine ansprechende Mischung aus World und Jazz von
Wien's "first couple of jazz"

...Moods is a superb album and a showcase for non-American jazz, and is rapidly becoming one of my albums of the year......

......One seldom equates Austria with having any significant jazz talent, outside of Joe Zawinul, but Moods, by Michaela Rabitsch and Robert Pawlik, proves conclusively that jazz lives on in Austria.

John M. Peters, Music Watch #11

High Class, Sassy Brass…that is the ever-evolving legacy of the Rabitsch & Pawlik duet when their Moods spin you!

...This is an innovative jazz disc, bright, precise, and most of all, diabolically up tempo! .... This quartet has a sophisticated way of creating original selections while at the same time, articulating their musicianship to the next level.  Seeing this ensemble live has to be a dynamic kick! ....

Karl Stober, Jazzreview

... “Moods” is a record that can transform the most pedestrian of places into an underground jazz club.......a superb album!

Hilary Matfess, The Metro Spirit Weekly

.... a reasonably unique ensemble ..... Michael P. Gladstone, All About Jazz

What is it about Europe that turns out woman trumpet players that have a great jazz sense?  The ones that know how to hit it really know how to hit and Rabitsch is one of the ones in the winner‚s circle..... this is a great example of the fun kind of jazz that makes people that think they didn‚t like jazz get turned on.  From Austria they come and this trumpet/guitar led crew just might conquer the world with their sound.

Chris Spector, Midwest Record Recap

One of the most original CD's to come out in 2008 ...... Brad Stone, KSJS 90.5 FM


One thing that sets these folks apart from the average jazz act is the fact that not only does Michaele sing...but she is also an accomplished trumpet player. This, combined with her husband's incredibly fluid guitar playing, gives their music an inviting sound with occasional Latin flavors. Moods is a very subtle yet stylish album featuring flawless playing and instantly additive rhythms

Don W. Seven, LMNOP Magazine

Austrian jazz vocalist & trumpet/flugelhorn artist Michaela blends together with Pawlik's superb guitar phrasings to render an album that's most enjoyable and full of great jazz energy.  
The arrangements are superb as well,... they will snare your ears in a matter of seconds.  The word that sticks in my mind as I  listen through this fantastic CD is - "diversity"... it's clear from the listening that these players are comfortable with differences, and in my  mind, that makes their music immediately accessible.
Their album gets  a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED from these old ears.

Rotcod Zzaj, Improvijazzation Nation #83 

The Michaela Rabitsch and Robert Pawlik quartet have a unique sound for jazz quartet, .....

Rich McCracken III, The Metro Spirit

This Viennese combo is not your usual "she sings, he plays guitar" jazz couple. For one thing, Rabitsch is an accomplished, fluid trumpeter, .....

David Wilson, Wilson & Alroy

Michaela Rabitsch has a voice matching the genre. It's strong and clear and on key (rarer than you'd think)....

Amy Lotsberg, Collected Sounds

Their music is booming and they can feel empowered in the jazz world!

Mikolaj Furmankiewitcz, HMP Magazine-Department of Virtuosity

... this CD is really flawlessly, groovy, swinging, and proofes, that Viennese charm and jazz definitely combine .....

Angela Ballhorn, Jazzthetik

Austrias only female jazz trumpet player – she also sings – and her guitarist let slip in inspirations from Africa, from Cuba, but also from their Viennese home town in their brilliant songs.
A discovery!

Susanne Nolden, Frau im Spiegel

„Moods“ is their third common CD, but the number three is not decisive at all. The decisive point is, that the chemistry between singer and jazz trumpet player Michaela Rabitsch and guitarist Robert Pawlik is right. You can hear it.....

Reinhold Gruber, Oberösterreichische Nachrichten

With „moods“ the Viennese jazz trumpet player Michaela Rabitsch has released a marvelous CD – fantastic to chill.

Natascha Zeljko, Myself

Musicially the duo complements each other perfectly, ....

Elisabeth Habitzl, Brigitte

.... Full of atmosphere Michaela Rabitsch and Robert Pawlik let the tunes swing, it’s a sheer pleasure.

Franz X.A. Zipperer, Sonic

..... She is a singer and the best female jazztrumpet player in Austria.. ... On their new CD „Moods“ they offer a smart and trendy sound with latin and african elements. A pleasure also live!

Christine Sicher, Eurocity

Splendid Jazz from Austria: we like it! .....Peter Slavin, TVmedia

Exciting with that certain Viennese charm....... Peter Ostwald, Guitar

Smooth Jazz from Austria spreads a mood which hardly gives rise to misery.

Sanna Samsara, Planet Music

Exciting relaxed jazz for easy listening at it’s best! ..... Michael Tschida, Kleine Zeitung

Winning!...... Christoph Irrgeher, Wiener Zeitung

Elegant, distinguished, perfect!
The splendid stile, with which Rabitsch plays trumpet and flugelhorn and Pawliks elegant play are guarantors.
Michaela Rabitsch and Robert Pawlik had been extraordinary and good as a duo, as Michaela Rabitsch & Robert Pawlik Quartet they are extraordinary good.
