+ Per Willy Aaserud, Lars Jansson, Ulf Wakenius u.a.
Inger Marie first worked with the Swedish guitarist Ulf Wakenius on By Myself from 2006. The collaboration was inspiring for both of them and led to many concerts all over the world.
Inger Marie’s next release, My Heart Would Have A Reason, was produced by another great Swedish guitarist, Georg Wadenius. But on her new album, FOR YOU, Ulf and Inger Marie join forces once again. This time with a Scandinavian dream team featuring another Swede, Lars Jansson, on piano, and two Danes, bassist Jesper Bodilsen and drummer Morten Lund – as well as the wonderful trumpeting of Norwegian Per Willy Aaserud on several tracks. Inger Marie and her band of outstanding musicians make this album an aesthetic delight....
In May 2011, in Lars Nilsson’s Nilento Studio outside Gothenburg, Inger Marie and her five Scandinavian musicians met with producer Rasmus Solem and created magical moments. Now the rest of us can share the experience. Inger Marie doesn’t seek flashy musicality, she seeks depth, and she finds it in this quintet of musicians, who despite their virtuosic qualities never play a superfluous note. Their splendid musicianship allows room for reflection. This is the sound of the mountains of Arendal!
,,Eine feine Songauswahl zwischen skandinavischen und internationalen
Popsongs, darunter Carole Kings ,,Crying In The Rain", lassen das Album zu einer gepflegten Angelegenheit für die Stunde zwischen Tag und Traum
werden." (Jazzthing, Februar / März 2012)
