Notes and Editorial Reviews



Choral folksong and jazz combine to create a potential crossover classic

Is there ever a bad time to discover the wonders of the Swedish choral tradition? I don’t know, it’s never occurred to me. But the appearance of this marvellous disc demands exploration. No doubt purists would suggest there are better places to start, since this collection comprises several jazz renderings of classics. Yet illumination and adventure abound in one of this month’s surprise treats.

-- Gramophone [3/2009]
