About

Live recording, released in 2013.

Unni Wilhelmsen is performing her own songs, and borrowed songs she thinks is beautiful, live with Bodø Rythm Group and Bodø Sinfonietta.

Unni's words

Back in 2008, I did one single concert in Bodø Kulturhus, accompanied by Bodø Rhythm Group and Bodø Sinfonietta. We planned for six months, and some of my songs were rearranged for this ensemble and this special occasion. In addition, I chose some cover songs I wanted to sing, and a few of them are jazz classics.

We also did a version of Joni Mitchell's 'Both Sides Now', based on her famous recording with Vince Mendoza's soulful arrangements.

It turned out our sound engineer recorded the concert in a simple manner, only to keep in the archives. None of us thought of doing anything with this material until I let a handful of people hear it just for fun.

I've never sung jazz on tape before - I have to admit, my relationship with jazz is a shady one.

These people all told me I should release this concert. And so I started considering the idea, and here it is...

Fun stuff

Unni Wilhelmsen had no idea she was making a live album when she was performing these songs. No idea that the concert was being recorded. A sound engineer just made a recording for fun, and for his own archives, and the result was found to more than deserve a release amongst the general public. This is Unni's first live album after seven studio recordings.

About

Unni Wilhelmsen's fifth album, but first on her own label St. Cecilia Music, released in 2003. Unni Wilhelmsen is performing her own songs.


YouTube   Spotify   Tidal   iTunes

Unni's words

The first release on my own label, St. Cecilia Music. I started the label after my record deal with Universal was fulfilled. I chose not to sign a new contract with any company, and begun researching. What would it take to release this album myself in the same professional manner as the big guys on my previous releases? Reliable, qualified help was a must, regarding my well established career at this point.

As producer and musical playmate I chose Kjetil Saunes. I've been a fan of his solo albums and magnificent voice for years. Kjetil and Reidar Skår did the mix. The recordings were made in Kjetil's home, HøytogLavt Studio, in Bislett and Majorstua, Oslo, 02/03.

Additional musicians: Sigmund Groven (harmonica), Eivind Aarset (guitar), Espen Jørgensen (guitar), Anders Engen (drums & perc.), Paulin Skoglund Voss (cello).

This album is a fling with harmonies and personal lyrics. All lyrics are of course included in booklet, as usual.
