ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“In my opinion this is the most personal and original album I’ve ever recorded”, says Hilde Hefte, and after listening through the whole album one of the listeners said: “This is the ultimate Hilde-Hefte-album”.

The album entitled “Quiet Dreams” got its title after one of the compositions. Here you will find three parts from the 50 minutes commission work she composed for Tall Ships Races. She is taking you with her out on the ocean where you’ll be flying with the birds, diving with whales and much more. You will find beautiful ballads, AND a lullaby in Norwegian. Hilde’s great grandmother sang it for Hilde’s grandmother who sang it for her daughter (Hilde’s mother); she sang it for Hilde who sang it every night for her child – So in other words, a very personal, sweet little family-tune. The last track on the album is a very special, groove-based a cappella composition called “The End – TBA”.
Out of nine tracks Hilde has composed and written lyrics for seven, written all music-arrangements, done all vocals, and she is a musician on six out of nine tracks.
Musicians:
Hilde Hefte: all vocals, sansula, xylophone, Fender Rhodes, piano, various percussion, singing bowles, bracelet-shaker, triangle.
Egil Kapstad: Piano (on three tracks)
Simen Hefte Endresen: soda-percussion (on one track)
About Hilde Hefte:
Hilde Hefte received both Norwegian Jazz Federation (Region South Norway) Jazz Price 2015 and The Kristiansand Municipality Culture Award 2016.
She’s playing several musical instruments; she sings, composes and writes lyrics both for her own productions as well as others.
She has released 6 albums embraced by the audience and journalists. On this – her seventh album she’s taking her talent a big step further.
On this recording she is creating her own little universe. Trigged by being asked to write the commission work for Tall Ships Races 2015 she started composing more music and by this exploring new sides in her musical universe.

The jazz magazine “Salt Peanuts”- wrote:
(…….) ”And Even More” another composition composed by Hilde Hefte, and she’s singing and playing piano herself . This is a ballad too and, it strongly reminds us of Radka Toneff’s duet with Steve Dbrogosz on the gorgeous album ”Fairytales”.
Then Hilde Hefte is ending this album with her own composition ”The End – TBA”, where everything is done a cappella with her own voice. And by this she’s giving us a completely different tune than the other songs on this album. This could have been a vocal-quartet like ”Vocal Summit”, but with a highly personal touch and sophistication – almost like something Bobby McFerrin could have done.
(…) Hilde Hefte has with this album made a very very beautiful, little hour of music. It is like balm for the soul. Check it out! I’m sure you’ll like it! Jan Granlie / Salt Peanuts.
