Об исполнителе (группе)
Born in Aarhus (Denmark), singer VERONICA MORTENSEN was raised by her mother in Athens, Greece. At the age of 20, she moved back to Denmark to pursue a singing career – a natural choice, being the daughter of 2 musicians. She started her own soulband, a mini-bigband playing Aretha Franklin covers and Motown-classics, and soon after joined the more experimental acidjazzband Virtual Fantasy.
Veronica Mortensen graduated from Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus in the summer of 1996 and took her Diploma exam from Rythmic Conservatory of Copenhagen in 1998. She has performed on several albums and TV-shows, both as a lead singer and as a background vocalist. She also has appeared in rockmusicals like “A tribute to the Blues Brothers”, “Another Brick In The Wall” and “Hair” playing in both Copenhagen and Paris.
Her 2 albums “Pieces In A Puzzle” (2003) and “Happiness Is Not Included” (2007) got very fine reviews by the press and were both chosen for “Album of the week” by the Danish national radio (DR). The albums generated concerts in Denmark and abroad, among them at Bangkok Heineken Jazzfestival (Thailand), Beijing Jazzfestival (China) and at Ladies’ Jazzfestival in Gdynia (Poland). Beside her own music and band, she has also appeared with Peter Vuust Quartet, with whom se recorded the cd “Image Of Falling” (Imogena Records, 2005).
In 2007 Veronica Mortensen received a prize from Danish Songwriters’ Association (DPA), acknowledging her work as a songwriter.
Lately she has been working with several Big Bands, among them Athens Big Band (Greece) and swedish Bohuslän Big Band, with whom she’s been touring a number of times in Sweden. She has been a popular guest with Klüvers Big Band from Aarhus (Denmark) for the last 15 years and among many concerts, they have played the Aarhus Jazzfestival, toured Estland and played “Sacred Concerts” of Duke Ellington.
Veronica Mortensens 3rd album “I’m The Girl” is a live recording with Klüvers Big Band from Ridehuset in Aarhus, released in April 2010 on Stunt Records. The album shows what a great live performer she is and contains not only her own material, but also interpretations of other well-known songs. Special guests are Dave Samuels (US) on vibraphone/marimba and Dennis Mackrel (US) on drums.
Об альбоме (сборнике)
The new album will be presented at a release concert at “Café-scenen” (the Musikhuset Aarhus foyer) on Sunday the 8th of September at 2 pm.
“After the jazz festival in Aarhus in 2011, where Veronica played a couple of concerts with my quartet as she has been doing regularly since 2005, she complained to me that she was lacking new songs to sing. We only had the six songs we recorded years ago on “Image of Falling”. Since I am not a lyricist, she offered to put me in contact with someone in the Northern part of Norway, who had written excellent lyrics to a couple of songs for her. When Roy-Frode Løvland began to send me lyrics out of the blue, I was busy doing other things, and I just downloaded them to a library on my hard disc, thinking that I would probably never get to have a look at them. Nevertheless, I had a couple of days off at the end of September 2011, and I printed the whole lot out, put them on my piano and began working my way through the pile of lyrics. Doing this, I found a well of creativity that I hadn’t felt for years.
In three weeks during the late Indian summer of 2011, I wrote the songs that appear on this album. We recorded them in two days in the famous Nilento Studio in Göteborg, as easily as they had been written. When I write music to lyrics, I do not necessarily think about what they mean, I just go along with the sound of the words and the overall mood of the text. It wasn’t until I heard the final recordings – with Lars’ spirited and playful piano, Paul’s youthful drumming, Ove’s mellow and virtuous saxophone, not to mention Veronica’s wonderful voice – that I really understood how brilliant and moving Roy-Frode’s lyrics truly are. I sincerely thank you guys for making this a record which I really love. I hope listeners will find as much pleasure in listening to this record as we had making it.”
