Stemmens Skygge - Review All About Jazz

Thanks to the ECM label, many of us were exposed for the first time to the beautiful vocals of Norwegian folk singer Kirsten Bråten Berg and Swedish folk singer Lena Willemark. Both have always sought new forms to present and interpret their rich musical heritage. Berg collaborated with Norwegian bass player Arild Andersen in rearranging traditional Nordic songs (Sagn, ECM, 1991; Arv, KKV, 1994) and Andersen guested on her release Syng Du Mi Røyst (Grappa, 2001). Willemark's collaborations with two other Swedish musicians, multi-instrumentalist Ale Möller and bass player Palle Danielsson, were documented by ECM on Nordan (1994) and Agram (1996), on which she and Möller rearranged traditional Swedish songs. She also recently collaborated with the great Swedish bass player Andres Jormin on In Winds, In Light (ECM, 2004). Read more
