Rolf Kühn reinterprets the famous song “I’m Through With Love”
Last week the 88-year-old clarinetist Rolf Kühn presented the first foretaste for his upcoming album "Yellow And Blue", which celebrates its release on June 1st via MPS Records. Now, the second taste, a reinterpretation of the famous jazz standard "I’m Through With Love" is out.
The song was originally written by Fud Livingston, Matty Malneck and Gus Kahn in 1931. The song made its comeback in 1959 when Marilyn Monroe interpreted it in the film "Some Like It Hot" and got even more famous when jazz legends just as Nat King Cole, Etta Jones, Ella Fitzgerald und Lorez Alexandria put this song into their repertoire. Now Rolf Kühn is presenting his own, unique version of that song.
Besides well-known ballads and legendary love songs just as "I’m Through With Love", Rolf Kühn wrote five new compositions for his new album "Yellow And Blue". Together with his new quartet of pianist Frank Chastenier, bassist Lisa Wulff, and percussionist Tupac Mantilla, Kühn contrasts his sensitive side with his unbridled desire to experiment.
