High, Low Or In Between



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 5-7 working days
As individual musicians, Katarina and Svante Henryson have carved out quite extraordinary careers: Katarina touring internationally as a member of the highly successful Swedish vocal ensemble The Real Group, and Svante appearing in the most varied collaborations - on the cello, double bass and electric bass, and as performer, arranger and composer - with musicians as diverse as Elvis Costello, Anne Sofie von Otter, Chico Freeman and Martin Fröst. Representing their own broad musical tastes, the repertoire on this album is as varied as it gets: truly 'High, Low or In Between'. Pop songs by Elton John and George Harrison rub shoulders with Prince's funk hit Kiss, Bill Evans's jazz classic Waltz for Debby and Tom Jobim's bossa nova Chega de Saudade. These last two Katarina performs in the versions made immortal by the Swedish jazz singer Monica Zetterlund, while a third song to a Swedish text, Det växer från Edens tider, also displays its Swedish origins proudly through its folk-like idiom. A handful of tracks consist of original material by the performers themselves - Eyes of a Child they wrote together after the birth of their son - including three cello improvisations and Svante's instrumental piece Green. In these, Svante's cello - and his very special treatment of it - steals the spotlight, but in fact it plays such a major role throughout the programme that it becomes a third, equal partner of the duo!
