Eggum for president?

Jan Eggum has proudly claimed that his release President is one of his best records ever. Several critics and listeners nodded approvingly to his claim, in spite of the difficulty of choosing just one favorite among his numerous musical highlights. Produced by Geir Luedy and Mats Grønner and with talented musicians such as Audun Kleive, Bjørn Kjellemyr, Jan Gunnar Hoff, and Erik Færestrand, the release has a fresh and vital character that fits Eggum melodies. The combination of jazz, pop and folk songs provides a thrilling soundstage with the use of rhythm details and samples, while Bergen based group Ephemera´s vocal contributions harmonize beautifully with Eggum distinctive voice. Tracks like the title track, "President", "Hørt det før" and the powerful ballad "Et kort sekund" (from the musical Antons Villfaring) confirms this artist’s ability to deliver strong and credible song material.

There is every reason to suspect Jan Eggum to be right when he claims that this is the best disc he has ever made.

Experienced Artist

Jan Eggum made​his debut in 1975. Since then there have been numerous recordings under his own name and with the success group Gitarkameratene, a large number of show performances and song books, and an unbelievable amount of concerts. In other words, Eggums does not lack experience, and it is therefore every reason to note his statement that President is his best release ever.

Vital Eggum

12 new songs have been included on President, recorded in Bergen with Geir Luedy at the controls and Audun Kleive, Bjørn Kjellemyr, Jan Gunnar Hoff and Morten Færestrand as musicians. The album also features vocal contributions from Ephemera. It sounds unmistakably Eggum-like, but young, fresh and modern. Loose jacket during the recordings and tightened discipline during editing and mixing has resulted in a vital and vibrant yet stringent sound. This is jazz, pop and folk in perfect harmony, with high quality texts as we know them. Tracks such as "President", "Hørt det før" and "Et kort sekund" has all the substance to become future Eggum classics. And the song "Tommy" has already become a concert classic.
