Wunderbar und ehrlich,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Bitter and Sweet (Audio CD)
Having released a R'n'B album under the monicker Isa, Jessica Pilnäs got fed up with the music business and concentrated on her medical studies, becoming an MD, and having to children. But fortunately she has returned to the world of music in a new much matured version.
This is a beautiful album, very relaxed and intense at the same time. And she definitely has the ability to sing from the heart in a way that touches the listener on a deeper level. And despite the jazzy instrumentation dominated by piano and the sublime acoustic bass of Dan Berglund (e.s.t.) it often sounds more like a singer/songwriter album in the best 70s tradition.
In fact Jessica has written some touching songs not least the beautiful "Just Not Today". Otherwise it's husband guitarist Johan Norberg who delivers most of the melodies. But there are also some very well done covers like Annie Lennox's "There Must be An Angel", "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and not least "The Winner Takes It All" in duet with Nils Landgren. Managing the difficult art to take a well known song and making it her own.
A technically prolific singer but her real strenght is her honesty and emotional engagement.
