Ellen Andersson Quartet’s debut album “I’ll Be Seeing You” is a disc that will not go anywhere unnoticed. The Quartet is a group of relatively common jazz composition: vocals, guitar, bass, and drums, and makes standard songs in their own arrangements. The song material the great story-rate and emotional range, where playfulness meets big seriousness makes this an album listeners will adore. Ellen Andersson Quartet aims to find a middle ground where tradition can face the present, but also wants to do this without losing their integrity and personality. The group also wants to challenge the way in which many jazz vocalists relate to and participate in the music. The ensemble attaches great importance to each of the four musicians being on equal terms.
"All hail Ellen Andersson, the best sort of blasphemous resurrection. The audacious Swedish jazz singer with the voice of tissue paper enrobing a jewel is probably the best representation of new jazz coming out of Europe and a more than fitting successor to Billie Holiday." - AXS
