Product Description


Despite the fact that they're currently seeing more than their fair share of stale reproductions, standards became standards because they lend themselves to endless interpretations. Still, after countless recordings, it takes a singer with both the courage and the right voice to breathe new life into them. Such singers are rare, but Swedish vocalist Lisa Ekdahl is undoubtedly among them. Weaving and twisting its way through lyrics that are often older than she is, Ekdahl's high lilting voice lends a unique articulation and a remarkably fresh sound to these classics. From Cole Porter's coy "Love for Sale" to Arthur Hamilton's bluesy "Cry Me a River" or the romantic Richard Whiting/Walter Bullock penned title track, Ekdahl proves herself capable of covering a broad spectrum of emotions--a versatility that gives this album both the familiarity of an old friend and the rush of a new love, a rare combination indeed. --Bill Snyder

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some Mistake! 29 Aug 2004
Format:Audio CD
We bought this album by mistake in a clearance sale - but I played it because I liked the cover! Superb, oh such a voice. If you like timeless music then this should be in your collection. Some mistake!
