I was tall, skinny and 14 years old - and already with a quite advanced classical music background - when I got a musical chock. I heard Creedence Clearwater Revival pumping out of the speakers at my primary school party. Even though Mozart had spoken to my inner princess since the age of 5, I knew that this was the same deal but in a different wrapping. It grabbed me by my youth and the sophisticated and innocent universe containing only classical music, was forever changed. Dylan didn't sing in tune, Fogerty played the same 4 chords very loud again and again - but indeed it worked for me: I was very attracted to the melancholic atmosphere in the melodic soul rock. This album contains a dozen of my all-time favorite singer/songwriter melodies which were carefully picked for this album. The starting point for this recording session of “Silent Ways” would be that all the invited musicians should bring their own story to the table. And they did! Nguyên Lê came with beautiful Asian lines and original blues phrasing, Leszek Możdżer brought a whirling east European folk spirit, Robert Ikiz put his groovy Turkish/Swedish signature on it, while Lars Danielsson sealed the package with his magical melodic bass- and cello lines and engineer Freddy Albrecktsen delivered a sound made of flesh and blood…. We did it the old-fashioned way! But couldn't help adding a lot of our own story to it: The sound of the new colorful inter European jazz. Enjoy listening, Cæcilie Norby
