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 Katché), Martin Taxt (Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, Koboku Senju) and Pål Hausken (In the Country, Susanna). What particularly characterizes Music for a while, is the group´s 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 Weill´s immortal music. Graces that refrain features fearless "cover versions" of compositions in classical music: from John Dowland to Poulenc.
