based formation Threestyle is one of the admirable
formations that have improved from one album to the next,
ultimately reaching world level. Perfect Combination
is the absolutely fitting title for their latest work, which
will be released at the end of April 2021.
Saxophonist Magdalena Chovancova, guitarist Robert Fertl
and drummer Gabriela Chovancova are Threestyle and
invite brilliant singer Damon Dae, the amazing singer
Latonya Black, the wonderful vocal trio DW3
and the great singer Tim Owens, who we already had the
pleasure to present in connection to many albums of
The album opens with Steppin' Up with which our
protagonists Magdalena and Robert rise to true greatness. A
song always lives from the timbre of its performer. On
Keep It Simple vocalist Damon Dae showcases his
impressive voice in a beautiful setting.
Giant is Threestyle's very own presentation with
hipness in a sonic journey. Lovin on Next to Nothin
is the product of a fruitful collaboration with singer and
Latonya Black. Latonya is a power-house vocalist with a
musical theatre background and also an author of non-fiction
books. The horn-infected Beat offers a
Tower-of-Power-infused perfect storm.
With Prime Time Threestyle has built a memorable
melody which could nestle in the front of the hit parade.
No One Else Would Ever Do features the famous vocal
trio DW3. The song sounds so professionally that I assumed
it could be the cover of a megahit.
Smoothies is the aptly title of a sweet melody
carried by sax and guitar in the sense of a sonic spirit.
Come 2 Me is a group effort between Threestyle and
Tim Owens, who also perfectly performs the song in a
breathtaking way. One cannot find a better amalgamation of
sax and vocals.
On the title track the group plays with sounds especially in
the style of a scat song. The album concludes with the song
Vision. Robert cites with his guitar the styles of
George Benson, Carlos Santana and Dire Straits. Simply
Threestyle's Perfect Combination has all
ingredients to become the pick of the litter of new releases
in 2021. What an amazing evolution.
