Lindfors and Bjørnstad

”Coastlines” is very much Lill Lindfors´album. All the music has been written as a tribute to her by her collaborator during 30 years, Ketil Bjørnstad. ”These melodies took shape with her unique voice in mind.” he says in the booklet text.

When Ketil Bjørnstad was asked to compose the commisioned work for the Canal Street Festival in Arendal in 2007, the working title ”Coastlines” came to mind almost immediately. The same did the singer Lill Lindfors. Tuesday July 24, 2007 ”Coastlines” had it’s world premier in front of a very enthusiastic audience in the brand new Arendal Kulturhus. On stage was in addition to Bjørnstad and Lindfors, an all star team of musicians: Nora Taksdal (viola), Svein Dag Hauges (guitars), Arild Andersen (double-bass) and Alex Riel (drums). Rainbow Studio did a live recording that afterwards has been mixed by Jan Erik Kongshaug. ”Coastlines” is the third instalment in a trilogy together with ”Seafarers Song” with Kristin Asbjørnsen and ”Grace” with Anneli Drecker.
Great songs, beautifully conveyed by Lill Lindfors.
