LILLY is ready with her fifth albumrelease, THE SONG IS YOU. It features two major and versatile musical talents on the international jazz scene today, the guitarist, Gilad Hekselman (ISR) and the cornetist, Kirk Knuffke (US). 

Both are critically acclaimed jazz musicians for their work in their own bands and as sidemen in all sorts of contexts. They live in New York and have been a part of the jazz scene there and around the world for more than a decade. 

On August 1, 2019, they recorded together at Big Orange Sheep Studio in Brooklyn, New York. It was a relaxed, fun and intense day and the recordings of the eight jazz standards, a trad. folk song and one of Lillys own compositions therefore also bears the stamp of this open mood, playful approach and presence. 

LILLYs latest release from Dec 2017, was the duo album, Tenderly,  that also featured the guitarist Gilad Hekselman. It received an overwhelmingly positive response from the USA, Germany and Denmark.  Among other things, it was selected as TOP 5 BEST VOCAL RELEASE  2017 by The New York City Jazz Record, that also wrote this in a review: "Tenderly is a truly superb recording, which rightly raises the expectations for her next effort".  Now a new album is on the way, and hopefully you’ll enjoy it! 

Release Friday March 26, 2021 via the Dutch recordlabel Challenge Records.

Lillys and Hekselman’s arrangements reach almost the impossible of regenerating standards like the title track, “You Go To My Head”, “Skylark” and “Day Dream” to the point of ownership rather than reinterpretation”

The voice and the guitar is like a match made in heaven”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 STARS in Danish music magazine GAFFA!

"Ella Fitzgerald and Joe Pass set the bar high for guitar-vocal duos. Danish singer LILLY (-Ann Hertzman) and guitarist Gilad Hekselman touch that bar with Tenderly."”
