ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
New release on April 10th (2017) from Sonorous Music with Swedish vocalist, composer and improviser Gunilla Törnfeldt.

Since her debut album A Time For Everything (2009) Gunilla have been busy touring and releasing an album with her other group Stockholm Voices, which have made a tremendous success and completely captivated the jazz audience in Sweden. She has never lost touch with her own music though, and the process to make a new solo album started years ago.

Behind the Mask reflects a troubled world on both a personal and more objective level. Raw, direct and honest modern jazz with simplicity, vulnerability and playfulness without apologies. Fragments of diary notes is combined with other’s life stories to create something new to be viewed from an outside perspective without losing a personal touch.

Eight compositions by Gunilla is complemented with famous guitarist Bill Frisell’s song Tell Your Ma Tell Your Pa, to which Gunilla wrote lyrics for over a decade ago but have not been recorded and released until now, with the artist's permission.

The album was recorded in Stockholm, Sweden, in Small House Studio by Erik Lindeborg, was mixed by Swedish Grammy awarded producer Pål Svenre and mastered by Thomas Eberger at Stockholm Mastering.


REVIEWS:

Rating: 4/5. "Sophisticated vocal jazz with delicate surroundings. The music is mostly cool and soft, the intensity rises a couple of times. The instruments are exquisitely intertwined with Törnfeldt's supple vocal expressions, except for the parts where they tastefully are given room on their own. The term chamber jazz feels unavoidable, although unlike the debut album there is no string quartet. The sound is generally relaxed and contemplative, with two distinct exceptions. The title track is rough and unruly in an arrangement which twists and turns. Filled with vocal acrobatics it oozes with heat and pride. Marching For Peace is also standing out, would like to call the song a young cuckoo that needs to get out of the safe nest.”
