"Women on the wings of jazz..." 4 stars and fine words from Berlingske!  

Tenderly (feat. Gilad Hekselman) was reviewed in the major Danish newspaper, Berlingske this monday January 29, together with some really nice collegues of mine. We were all referred to as "four of the most significant vocalists on the Danish jazzscene" who all recently have released "personal and integrated abums".

I feel grateful, happy and lucky once again for the four stars and more nice words about this album like ".....fine and credible interpretations of songs like Hoagy Carmichaels "Skylark" and Charlie Hadens "First Song" and the Swedish folksong "Vem Kan Segla" here featured in an elegant combination with Henry Mancinis "Whistling Away The Dark" ".

New York City Jazz Record: “Tenderly is a truly suburb recording...” and many more fine words in this VERY nice review! 

The magazine THE NEW YORK CITY JAZZ RECORD that placed Tenderly (feat. Gilad Hekselman) as Top 5 BEST VOCAL RELEASES 2017 about a month ago, is now featuring a VERY nice and thorough review of the album with many fine words and I am really proud to be able to highlight a section like this:

"Without the palette of colors provided by a full band, her voice almost floats above the at-times minimalistic, yet rich and often suspenseful tapestry provided by guitar. The material could not have been more challenging, inasmuch as it is inevitably associated with interpretations that have made the history of jazz. Yet, Lilly 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". 

And it ends with this sentence:  "Tenderly is a truly superb recording, which rightly raises the expectations for her next effort".

I am SO grateful once again! 🙏✨ 

The review is to be found in the February Issue of www.nycjazzrecord.com    

Lots of love & peace, Lilly ❤️

 

 

4 hearts ❤️❤️❤️❤️... and many fine words from Politiken!  

Yesterday I received my first review ever in Politiken, a major Danish Newspaper. I feel lucky to have made it to the pages since I know how hard that is, among all those many great records of all kinds of music. 

There were many fine words from the reviewer, Christian Munch-Hansen, that called the album a little pearl and a.o. wrote like this: “...everything seems so natural in her confidential present interpretations with Gilad Hekselman, whose sovereign accompaniment is tonally singing, low-keyed listening and filled with small delicious details”.  He gave the album 4 warm hearts too ❤️❤️❤️❤️ ☺️✨

I am very happy and grateful once again that this one-day-session with Gilad Hekselman back in 2015 is being so well received.

With love and gratitude,

Lilly ❤️

A CHRISTMAS TALE COME TRUE....HAPPY NEW YEAR! 

Dear all!

💫✨ An almost magical and star spangled take-off and journey so far of my new album, Tenderly (feat. Gilad Hekselman) ends on a really high note that I had never even dared dream of a month ago, when I released it on Dec 1st 2017! I am SO happy and grateful .. and also a little proud as well, to announce that The New York City Jazz Record has chosen to give the album 3 really good gifts in their new January 2018 Issue! 


💥1) It has been included as one of their TOP 5 “BEST VOCAL RELEASES OF THE YEAR!” ✨💫🙏🌟✨ So.. I am now able to see my name and the album title, Tenderly (feat. Gilad Hekselman), surrounded by 4 really amazing jazz singers in this category.. a couple of them being from major labels and Grammy awarded/nominated! ✨☺️✨ 

💥 2) And as if that was not enough, I was notified yesterday that it has also been included in a list of their ✨RECOMMENDED NEW RELEASES✨...and so I found myself being on the same list as the divine queen of jazz and one of my first teachers (though she never knew ;), the one and only...Miss ELLA FITZGERALD !!! ✨🌟🙏💫🤩😆 Wow! 

As a third thing.. 💥3) The album was also mentioned in their VOX NEWS column as an example of “..the diversity of vocal jazz talent that derives from the Nordic region” ☺️ 

Oh, my...although, I have known about the first good news for some weeks now, it still feels a bit surreal for me to comprehend all this..including the first 5 star review in Danish music magazine GAFFA on Dec 1st and the last 4,5 Star review in All About Jazz yesterday! Me being a small town girl, living in a small town in the small state of Denmark...having been away from the jazz scene for several years too... or rather, not really having entered it before. 
So, dear all.. I am truly happy, grateful and astonished to let you all know that Christmas tales DO come true! And it doesn’t matter how old you are ...☺️   

Best wishes for a very HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018 to everyone and THANK YOU so much for everything in 2017!

✨🤗💫💥🥂🍾🤩🙏 Lots of love and peace, Lilly ❤️
