This is my debut solo album. It's a beautiful jazz album with straight ahead swing songs, beautiful fragile bolero's, quirky fun basslines, hard hitting bebop and groovey bogaloo's. Great lyrics with loads of depth. Take time to let it all sink in!!!!


released April 12, 2006

And then he sees me with his gentle eyes, and then he touches me, so many times he's wandered in my mind, so that I can't go to sleep. Cos he's the one, for me, the one for me......

Drömmen om sången, den som består
Sagans oändliga liv
Känslan i ordet
Ordningens val
Stormar emot oss, var rad

Lyckans berusning i tid och i rum
Lyser inom oss per blad
Drömmen om sången var dag,
Vill oss ej mer än behag
Möter förväntningens lag.

Kolsvarta nätter, lyser så klar
Talar i tungor i natt
Blänkande guldigt
Storaktigt slut
Hoppas vi sagan tar slut.

Öppet men slutet i vals orden går
Och dit vägen bär hädan är nu..
Drömmen om sången var dag
Tolkarens tjusning är jag
Drömmen om sången är sann
Och vid månskenets början, där börjar vår sång
Vacker och lång
Sagans oändliga liv
