On May 7th, we had the pleasure of being joined by the great local singers Lisbeth Svardal and Roy Vorland. The band members know the singers from previous projects, dating back to the early 90’s when me and Lisbeth and me played in the same big band. Since then there have been musical encounters with Lisbeth and Roy in a variety of genres, venues and occasions.
Lisbeth, whose voice resembles that of Cecilie Nordby, did a great version of Bacharack’s The look of love clearly inspired by Nordby’s version from her My Corner of the sky album. The mic placement is again on the grand piano and the vocal is unfortunately in the background. The piano voicings in the foreground is mainly based on fourths to get that “new standard” sound.
