Jazz på internationalt topniveau!
Downbeat: ”The Danish jazz singer, an established star in Europe, checks all the boxes; burnished tone, perfect intonation, swing, unerring taste and an adventurous streak.”
The Guardian: ”Lustrous tones and alert improv from Danish star.”
I et unikt samarbejde optræder Sinne Eeg og Thomas Fonnesbæk i en musikalsk sammensætning bestående af kontrabas og sang, hvilket de to musikere udnytter optimalt. Det bliver sprødt og blødt, så englene synger, og der venter publikum en stor og overraskende koncertoplevelse, når duoen går på scenen.

Umiddelbart lyder bas og sang måske som en lidt sjov sammensætning, men netop denne skaber luft i musikken og giver dermed spillerum for begge musikeres store kreativitet og spontanitet.

Thomas Fonnesbæk, bassist i verdensklasse, formår med sin virtuositet at skabe et spændende og medrivende, rytmisk og harmonisk grundlag for Sinne Eeg’s ligeledes virtuose sang. Det er en meget krævende musikalsk sammenhæng, som Eeg og Fonnesbæk udnytter optimalt. Man vil således høre begge musikeres musikalitet komme maksimalt til udtryk.

De to musikere har spillet sammen over længere tid og udgav I 2015 DCen “Eeg-Fonnesbæk”, som de modtog en Danish Music Award for.

Sinne Eeg har modtaget bl.a. Dronning Ingrids Hæderslegat, Ben Webster Prisen, DR Jazz Prisen, Holstebro Kommunes Musikpris, 4 gange Danish Music Award samt en af Europas mest prestigefyldte jazzpriser “Palmares”, da de franske jazzkritikere valgte albummet “Face The Music” som “Årets internationale vokaludgivelse 2014”. Hun tounerer massivt I bl.a. Skandinavien, USA, Japan, Kina og Frankrig.

Thomas Fonnesbæk er en af Danmarks dygtigste kontrabassister. Mange vil kende ham fra hans virtuose samarbejder med blandt andre pianisterne Enrico Pieranunzi, Justin Kauflin, Lars Jansson og Thomas Clausen.

Han vandt guldmedalje ved Berlingske Musikkonkurrence i 1997. Var frem til 2001 medlem af Poul Reimanns Trio som bl.a. vandt 2. præmie ved European Jazzcontest i 1999 og 3. præmie ved Nordens Talent 1999.

Han har arbejdet sammen ned navne som Søs Fenger, Caroline Henderson, Sinne Eeg, Mona Larsen, Hans Ulrik, Alex Riel, Karsten Bagge, Jonas Jeberg, Jacob Fischer, Kristian Jørgensen, Paulo Russo, Ulf Wakenius, Thomas Agergaard, Simon Spang-Hanssen, Jørgen Emborg, Nikolai Bentzon, DR-bigband og Tivolis Bigband.

(English)

A duo only with vocal and bass pairs Danish jazz singer Sinne Eeg with Danish bassist Thomas Fonnesbæk. Purposely intended to feature Sinne in an open and bare setting and as a departure from her previous lush recordings. Sinne’s voice has a lush timbre that marries perfectly with Fonnesbæk’s warm bass sound.

Eeg and Fonnesbæk listen intensely and inspire each other to take chances. But spontaneity, communication and interpretation is, after all, the essence of jazz. The two are like dancers who are finely tuned and responsive to each other’s every gesture. The results are simply captivating.

As Sinne says, “I always loved singing duo with bass. I’ve done that since my first CD from 2003, and I always do it live in my concerts. It’s just a sound that I like very much. Thomas and I have been working together on and off through the years -- he’s just an amazing musician, and he and I communicate very well musically. I feel so comfortable with the bass and voice sound and I also find it so challenging, that I become better every time I sing with him. When you push yourself, that’s where the magic can happen. I really believed that we could do something interesting enough for a whole album, instead of just a feature.”

The duo released their debut album EEG-FONNESBÆK in 2015 which garnered a Danish Music Award (Denmark’s Grammy) for Best Jazz Vocal CD. The number of vocal/bass duo recordings is quite small. EEG-FONNESBÆK stands easily with the best of Sheila Jordan’s duet albums with Harvie S, Steve Swallow, and Cameron Brown. You can hear how their harmonic sensibilities play off each other, creating a rich emotive tapestry and full sound despite the absence of other instrumentation. They take the limitations of the duo format and turn it into an opportunity for greater creative freedom and self-expression that only musicians with great skills and empathy can achieve.

But that’s always been Sinne’s modus operandi. Although she’s firmly rooted in the traditions of the great jazz vocalists, Sinne is an artist who never settles for past modalities. Rather, she prefers to push herself into new territories in her recordings and live performances. She is also a prolific songwriter. Although her other albums featured Sinne’s catchy originals, EEG-FONNESBÆK focuses mostly on standards, Eeg manages to keep the essence of these chestnuts while taking them to new and fresh places that are imbued with her own personality and sensibilities.
