::: LIVE at Slotsbio / January 2018 :::
THE MOON AND THE TREE
Music & lyrics by Lilly
Lilly (vocal) & Jacob Fischer (guitar)
The song is an original by Lilly, and this is the world premiere of it from a sold out duo-concert on January 18, 2019 at Slotsbio, the oldest but newly renovated cinema/theater with 106 seats, in the castletown (Slotsbyen) in Hillerød, Denmark.
Lilly here played with the wonderful and extraordinary talented Danish jazzguitarist, Jacob Fischer.
For nearly two decades Fischer has worked with the best Scandinavian musicians as well as with visiting jazz greats such as Monty Alexander, Art Farmer, Toots Thielemans, Lee Konitz, Gary Bartz, John Abercrombie, Scott Hamilton, Adam Nussbaum, Harry Allen, Dick Hyman, Eric Alexander, Jerry Bergonzi, Richard Galliano and Chris Potter.
His versatile virtuosity can be heard on more than 200 CDs and he was a member of violin legend Svend Asmussens quartet for 15 years. More info about him at www.jacobfischer.dk
From the album MENNESKEBLOMST (2016)
In September 2015 I decided to make and share a video to each of my 12 songs from my album, Menneskeblomst. I didn´t have any experience in movie-making at all, so it was a fun experiment for myself. I used my phone for recording, and made it a rule to make it only one-clip-videos (that means I can also just place a photo...I found out later ;-) How I placed the music was quite random and by intution, but somehow I think it actually fits quite ok. Hopefully you enjoy!
