2008 release. An eclectic voice -- mellow, unvarnished and full of warmth. While pop music spins with even greater glare and über-sound effects, Mystéfy engrosses with pure sensibility. Piano, double bass and drums are enough background for a tantalizing lounge jazz album: Spark Within. The inner spark glows bright indeed: the twelve album songs were recorded in late September '07 in Munich, Germany -- they're lively, fresh and at the same time they spread calmness. Nine songs were self-penned by Mystéfy (lyrics & song melodies) and co-songwriter Roberto DiGioia (harmonies), who is also the pianist on the CD (and known for playing with Klaus Doldinger's Passport, Joe Lovano, Albert Mangelsdorff, and his very own project Marsmobil). The trio was completed by world class bassist Dieter Ilg (e.g. Rebekka Bakken, Charlie Mariano, Till Brönner...) and drummer Matteo Scrimali (e.g. Freundeskreis, Max Herre). Christian Prommer (also known as part of Drumlesson, Fauna Flash, Trüby Trio and Voom Voom) functioned as a producer.
