All About Jazz DigJazz
For her latest project, Elisabeth wanted to capture the essence of jazz, to capture the moment through improvisation. She collected a bunch of musicians who without rehearsals just got into the music. Each song on the album is like a small adventure, a separate story with different instruments. The ability to listen in as a prerequisite for good improvisation is something that permeates the entire album, and when it is done with so much innerness, it will be enjoyable to take part. Elisabeth Melander varies her singing between torn island and rolling and a lot in between. Own material is combined with interpretations of other materials. Overall a varied and fun disc to enjoy. A lot to discover for each new listening. LIRA
Elisabeth Melander's new album features American classics as a backbone, but thanks to her improvisational skills and
her rich and warm voice it feels far from the standard form.

Both Melander and her musicians are routine and get the album's mix of self-written material and standards to blend immensely nicely OJ
