Mari Kvien Brunvoll (180g Vinyl)
This collection of songs, recorded live in Norway and the Netherlands, demonstrate Mari's ability to create sonic textures and settings for her unique voice and vocal style. Featuring original compositions as well as arrangements of two classic Memphis Minnie songs, Mari's exploration of traditional musical forms via modern techniques (as exemplified by her previous Jazzland Recordings release with Stein Urheim, "Stein & Mari's Daydream Community") manages to weave evocative moments with improvisational fire.
Throughout the album, the songs have a musical simplicity that disguises the complexity of the methods that have created their performance: by listening alone it seems almost unbelievable that these pieces were created by a single person alone on a stage before live audiences. This is what makes Mari Kvien Brunvoll such an important emerging artist.
