Landgren, Nils / Gustafsson, Rigmor - I Will Wait For You

“Rigmor has her soul in her voice” (Nils Landgren about Rigmor Gustafsson) “Rigmor is the greatest jazz singer that we have had in Sweden for a very long time.” wrote the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet. For years Rigmor Gustafsson has been a star of the young, vital Swedish jazz scene and had already released three albums in her own name. In Germany her highly-praised performance at the Berlin Jazz Festival in 2001 led to an invitation to the JazzBaltica Festival in 2002 as a result of which she could be introduced to the wider German audience as a “new star in the vocal heaven” (Jazzthetik). In the same year she guested on Nils Landgren’s successful Sentimental Journey album (ACT 9409-2). Now with the first ACT release I Will Wait For You she finally proves that she inherits seamlessly the tradition of great Swedish female vocalists such as Monica Zetterlund, Lill Lindfors, Sylvia Vrethammar and Alice Babs. “Her soul speaks to other souls” wrote Werner Burckhardt in the Süddeutsche Zeitung about her performance at JazzBaltica 2002- and her voice and personality could not be described better Rigmor Gustafsson (vocals), Nils Landgren (trombone & vocals), Roberto Di Gioia (piano), Lars Danielsson (bass), Wolfgang Haffner (drums). Guests: The Flesh Quartet (strings), Staffan Svensson (trumpet). 12 Tracks. Recorded 28.-30. Januar 2003 at Polar Studio, Stockholm, Schweden.
