For someone who would not call themselves a jazz enthusiast I was knocked out when I first heard this album being played in my local music shop, and bought the cd straight away. Ekdahl has a mesmerising voice, and puts a new spin on some old classics. Her interpretation is unique, though there are one or two slightly unusual pronunciations of words on her delivery of "Cry me a river" which you get used to and even begin to warm to after several hearings. This is her first English album, her earlier discs are performed in Swedish, and have turned platinum in her native land. The Peter Nordahl trio are great musicians in their own right and this really is an album to savour. Given a wider audience Lisa Ekdahl will undoubtedly become a great star.
