Whirlwind By Rebecka Larsdotter


Rebecka Larsdotter was born in Sweden, currently lives in New York, and has released her latest album on the Norwegian based Losen Record Label.

Whirlwind is a change of direction for Larsdotter. Her previous release, Feathers And Concrete, was a funk-driven fusion album. Now she has a smoother and brighter sound as she explores the connections between jazz and folk music.

and here there are a number of originals sung in English. “Hmm,” “If The Wind Will Allow,” and “Zane’s Tune” are all thoughtful and easy-flowing pieces. The album closer is a distinctive rendition of the old Johnny Mercer classic “My Shining Hour.”

Rebecka Larsdotter has produced a shiny and optimistic album of music. Just right for a breezy summer afternoon.
