Nordic jazz tends to be very warm in my experience. This collection of original tunes by Danish singer Cathrine Legardh and her sparring partner on this album, alto saxophonist Sigurður Flosason, make an album with songs of love, live and even dogs. It’s a mellow listen, something hotter than cool jazz, but measured in its playing. A gorgeously relaxing disc.
One additional note: I’ve picked up a few titles from the label that released this disc, Storyville Records. They handle new music and reissues with great care and are a label absolutely worth supporting.
