Drum legend Keith Copeland who has performed with a countless number of stars, ranging from Cab Calloway to Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Stan Getz to George Benson or the Count Basie Orchestra took his „Second take“ (RODENSTEIN RECORDS ROD 32) with the great swinging German singer Nicole Metzger, after suffering a severe stroke. Although being told that he would never be able to play again, he was so thrilled by a performance of Nicole that he decided to record his comeback album with her. An album full of emotion, spontaneity, warmth, and last but not least full of groove! For Nicole Metzger it’s her long-awaited debut as a leader and she displays all of her great qualities: Her full, warm voice, her improvisational skills, her impeccable technique but most of all her capability to really interpret the songs in her own, very personal way that comes straight from the heart.

She chose some of the best European musicians for her band:
