The idea of exploring their potential as a duo manifested during a film project they worked on together, much to everybody's satisfaction. Subsequently, Martino and Winter-schladen used every spare moment to advance the new affaire à deux. As stated, mostly af-ter dark. Martino would pre-produce tracks in his home studio and present them to Winter-schladen, who'd then lay his melodies on and/or improvise. They listened, changed, rear-ranged, sought and found, until - in the end - their first album was finished that way. Now, ''As The Sun Sets'' has all that got the world infatuated with the NIGHTHAWKS' music - and then some. This time the gentlemen engage/d vocal support, bringing in Pat Appleton, the magnificent female singer of DePhazz with her voluminous yet satiny voice. Topping off an already tasty dish, her singing blends impressively with the band's great music, as titles like ''Descend'', ''Receptions In Brazil'' or ''Capetown Unvisit-ed'' evince. Of course there are also several gems of the typical making, as e.g. ''Jetlag'', ''Depar-ture'' or ''Managing The Beatles'' (a homage to bandleader, arranger and composer, Bert Kaempfert), featuring the leading trumpet of Reiner Winterschladen as beautiful as ever. A charming twist is added by the surprising track ''Farewell'' [10] showcasing virile vo-cals á la Serge Gainsbourg or Johnny Cash, while of course it's neither one of them: The low timbre belongs to Dal Martino himself, lending this track it's coarse appeal. All these facets form a jewel of the finest water, indeed resplendent in the colors of the setting sun. A most beautiful compound of jazzy lounge music with a soundtrack vibe, as stylish as it is emotionally rich - a rare and sumptuous thing, at any rate. And a most rewarding listening experience, best relished between dusk and dawn.
