Eldbjørg Raknes & Oscar Grönberg

You Make Me Feel AlbumPurchased

Eldbjørg Raknes is one of Norway’s strongest and most distinctive voices. She entered the Norwegian music scene at the beginning of the 90s and her work, since then, has been characterized not just by her sound, but also by her determination to search for new and challenging artistic paths. In recent years her music has been largely in the field of improvisation, using a wide range of vocal techniques, and (usually) avoiding intelligible words. Here, then, is an opportunity to meet another side of Eldbjørg’s work and go with her on her rather special journey of immersing herself into tunes she first heard and sang over 20 years ago. Yes! Eldbjørg sings jazz standards and more! Surprise! In the summer of 2014 she invited the young Swedish pianist Oscar Grönberg (born 1987, now living in Trondheim) to play with her. Having heard him with various other bands, she felt she had found someone with a totally unique understanding of, and respect for the song material and the jazz tradition, while, at the same time, being completely open to “where one can go with it”. This is a meeting of two musicians in tight, open, distinct and fearless interaction. Oscar is, says Eldbjørg, “a jewel”. In the cool waters and high peaks of Lofoten, July 2014, something new and truly vibrant was born.
