We’re so happy to share this little gem of music with you. Music by Gigi Gryce and lyrics by the great Jon Hendricks! Betty Carter recorded the original version with Ray Bryant on piano. Listen to our version of Social Call! Link to all platforms here: https://naxos.lnk.to/PCD236ID!SVSocialCall
Both of the singles Let’s Face the Music and Dance and Social Call were planned to be released the same dates as our new club Stockholm Voices Salon – April 22nd and May 20th respectively – then covid-19 happened and we had to cancel all concerts. But we decided to release the singles anyway and now they are both out!
Please listen and share, we hope to sing for You live as soon as possible!
Today is the day – our debut album “Come Rain or Come Shine” is released! We have already received a couple of great reviews – you can read them here (we will translate a.s.a.p.). And the biggest newspaper in Sweden – Dagens Nyheter – printed an article and interview with us about the album and our release concert at Jazzclub Fasching tonight. We are so excited and can’t wait to share our music with all of you!
Stockholm Voices recieved two marvelous reviews from the concerts last week in Hässleholm and Jönköping. The critics were stunned:
“With Stockholm Voices jazz bursts into full bloom. They were a complete success at their concert in the Blå salongen with their exquisite vocals and their supreme artistry. This relatively newly started vocal quartet is touring extensively and are captivating the Swedish jazz audience completely. You just have to surrender to these formidable voices and their tight band with four creative and interacting musicians that greatly contribute to the successful result.” – Norra Skåne, Åke Holmqvist 04/02/2015 Link to the review in Norra Skåne here (in Swedish).
“You didn’t need long to understand that we’ve got something really big in this quartet. And then the fun idea: To perform the music from the marvelous album “Waltz for Debby”, with Monica Zetterlund and Bill Evans Trio from 1964. With fresh and updated arrangements we where brought on a journey through all of that fantastic music. This young and talented quartet are about to captivate the audience in our land completely.”
– Jönköpingsposten, Bo Levander 2015/01/30
