5(...) It is of course not enough being brave if you want to receive 5 on the dice in this newspaper. But when one first take the challence Hilde Hefte is challenging her listeners to take on "Short Stories", you'll get more back than you ever thought you''d receive.

(...) Soul and nerve are maybe words that are used too many time to describe music. Here they belong. Soul and nerve!

The National Newspaper DAGBLADET: 5 on the dice and the most fantastic review:

5Click here and read more (only in Norwegian).....

 

In a brilliant and glittering way, she is exposing herself without any kind of musical safety-net. (...) and when her duo-partner Kapstad shows up as the pianist in «But Beautiful» and «You Leave Me Breathless», this is also happening with that type of authority which peels of everything that’s not needed and leave the essential sound undisturbed.

Greetings from me :)


THANK YOU FOR VISITING MY PAGE - IT'S AND HONOR.

I can hardly believe it; after almost a year in the studio and trying out idears at home, my new album is now mixed and mastered, an udescribable feeling. I am looking so much forward to this, I'm like a child - and I can't wait for you to listen to the result. I don't expect everybody to like it, taste is so personal, but to me this album is some of the best I've ever recorded. :) Why? Because I have this time challenged myself on different levels.

I have released Chamber-jazz CD's, recorded with String Quartet, Jazz Quintet, Bossa Nova in Norwegian, and not to forget: Together with the wonderful City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.

This album is quite different. It's only duo or/and vocal A Cappella.

AND; I'm playing several intruments myself, do music-arrangements and I am performing a tune written by myself and Jon Larsen.

Click words for the press underneath and read some more about the project...
