Sofie Sorman – Ripples – 2013

From the time I hadn’t realized yet that writing posts in Portuguese wouldn’t get any attention from readers: Sofie Sorman – Ripples, a Swedish singer, extreme sweetness on display, love it!

Sofie Sorman é oriunda da Suécia, habitando em Paris desde 2000, este seu álbum – Ripples – desenvolve-se sem pressas, os seus temas tendo a voz de Sofie como centro, quase param, com uma doçura por vezes extrema. Acompanhada por Armel Dupas, piano, Karl Jannuska, bateria e Joan Eche-Puig, baixo / contrabaixo – Sofie assegura a precisão, o detalhe aliados ao cuidado e carinho que fizeram nascer estas composições.

Sofie Sörman: Voz/Composição
Armel Dupas: Piano/Arranjos
Joan Eche Puig: Contrabaixo
Karl Jannuska: Bateria

Faixas: Corners; Ripples; Detox; Etoile Moyenne; Hidden space; Mystery; Paris; Dagen Viker; Dreamer; Healing souls; Changes

Tomasz Stanko: Bluish

Tomasz Stanko is a Polish trumpeter and composer that was present at the birth of modern European jazz. His album Bluish demonstrates how his trumpet sound is immediately identifiable. His very own sound – comes from Miles Davis and Chet Baker – and is Northern European. Absorbing and impressive are two important adjectives for these compositions.
