Notes & Reviews:

Fearless "cover versions" of compositions in classical music: from John Dowland to Poulenc. Music for a while, lead by Norway's uncrowned queen of cabaret, Tora Augestad, release their long-awaited second album with the ambiguous title Graces that refrain. As leading lady for Music for a while, Augestad fronts a dream team of Norwegian jazz musicians: Stian Carstensen (Farmers Market), Mathias Eick (Jaga Jazzist, Manu Katch), Martin Taxt (Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, Koboku Senju) and Pl Hausken (In the Country, Susanna). What particularly characterizes Music for a while, is the groups personal, organic and creative treatment of the material. On their critically acclaimed first album, Weill Variations, the band did original and fresh versions of Kurt Weills immortal music. Graces that refrain features fearless "cover versions" of compositions in classical music: from John Dowland to Poulenc.
