The newspaper Tønsberg Blad: Unquestionably one of our country's best jazz vocalists. 
This is bossa with a sure feeling for style; lazy, laid back, pleasant, warm and at the same time exotic. 
A Brazilian-Norwegian project which are giving spice to cold and grey winter days. 
Lovely.  Erik Munsterhjelm  /  5 on the dice
