Today it´s December 1st, and I am VERY HAPPY to announce the release of a new album, LILLY: Tenderly (feat. GILAD HEKSELMAN). You can get it for download and streaming worldwide HERE!
It was such a joy to make music together with this amazing, wonderful guitarist and human being one fine Octoberday back in 2015. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, GILAD! Now the result is out for you all to listen to. Hopefully you will enjoy it!
I am also really happy and overwhelmed by the first and very fine review from Ivan Rod/GAFFA, who gives the album ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 STARS! Most of all I am truly happy since he writes about how touched and deeply impressed he is about the music we have made here.To me, that is what making music and singing is all about...to touch someone. If that happens - I feel a joy deep in my heart and soul!
Ivan Rod begins his review like this:
"I am touched and deeply impressed by Lillys new album, Tenderly. Touched and impressed by the Danish jazzsingers vulnerable, minimalistic and almost naked expression. Touched and impressed by her deepfelt, relevant and solid versions of eight of the really great jazzstandards. So touched and impressed, that I have to say, that Tenderly is not only Lillys best releast until date, but one the recent years best Danish vocaljazzalbums!"
....He ends the review with these words:
"The way, in which the two - Lilly and Hekselman - approach the material, is so absolutely poignant and reveals a deep musicality. The voice and the guitar is like a match made in heaven. And the management of the material is poignant".
Thank you very much, Ivan!
