CD, стоящие на полке рядом : Jazz (Woman Voice)      

Sophomore album for French and Swedish jazz artist. At 22, Swedish singer-songwriter Fredrika Stahl already shows amazing maturity. She does not want to restrict herself to one genre or another and expresses her very personal style, somewhere between pop and jazz. Her vocal qualities make for a refined, natural and unaffected performance. Vogue. 2008

All Music Guide


Young Swedish pop jazz singer and songwriter Fredrika Stahl's 2nd album "Tributaries" got me initially disoriented and I couldn't pinpoint what stands out in this new collection of songs. There seems to be a departure of style as this new album has a more fresh varied upbeat theatrical sound while her debut is more instrumentally driven in a Jazz way. To help you refresh on what her previous album sounds like, check out my YouTube video filmed during one of my oil painting sessions. I used "Game Over" as the soundtrack. I know I know, it's not legal … but …

If my translation is correct (and if these are indeed French), "paroles, musiques, ecrites, compose" would mean "words, musics, written, composes" in English. That means, according to the album booklets, Fredrika Stahl composes almost all her songs. No wonder, the memorable melody hooks and the light and girlie lyrics exist in both albums.

The difference, as I found out later, lies in the band. In her debut, "Fraction Of You", she has a more traditional Jazz band set-up while in her 2nd album "Tributaries", she brings in an array of Parisian horn and string musicians. Also, with more emphasis on electric guitars and drums, "Tributaries" does tilt toward the pop genre. Besides musical instruments, sound effects are used to transform some of her songs into something refreshingly different. Take "Oh Sunny Sunny Day", it sounds exactly like a song coming out from a gramophone back in the 40?s or 50?s. Outstanding. In "One Man Show", at one part, she sings with a whispering voice. Very seductive. Plenty of minor keys and half-notes and unexpected changes in the melody that prompt me to listen to the album again and again. Sample the slow track "The Damage is Done" if you have the chance and you'll see what I mean.
