Info zu We've Just Begun
2020 release from Danish jazz vocalist Sinne Eeg and The Danish Radio Big Band. Sinne has received a number of recognitions and positive reviews both nationally and internationally, and is considered among the best female jazz vocalists currently in Scandinavia. She has composed many of her own songs, and although she usually sings in English, she has also performed and recorded songs in Danish.
"Na klar, wenn man ein traditionelles Big-Band-Album machen möchte, holt man sich am besten ihn: Der 89-jährige Toningenieur Al Schmitt hat früher Platten für Frank Sinatra und Nat „King“ Cole gemischt, sein Partner André Fischer, der hier als Ko-Produzent an Bord ist, ist verantwortlich für Natalie Coles Superhit „Unforgettable“. Die dänische Sängerin Sinne Eeg hat jedoch, in Abkehr von der Tradition, eigene Songs geschrieben und singt nur wenige Standards (darunter das von Bill Evans gern gespielte „Detour Ahead“). Zusammen mit der Danish Radio Big Band und hochkalibrigen Solisten wie Hans Ulrik, Gerard Presencer und Peter Fuglsang lässt Eeg diesen Traum in Plüsch aufsteigen – klassisches amerikanisches Entertainment, stilvoll und gekonnt. Und ihr Song „Those Ordinary Things“ könnte glatt zum Standard werden." (Rolf Thomas, Jazz thing)
Sinne Eeg, Gesang
The Danish Radio Big Band
Danish jazz vocalist Sinne Eeg (sée-neh/ée) is known throughout the world, but it all started in a small town called Lemvig in September 1977. Sinne grew up in a jazzy home, where her father played double bass, her mother the clarinet and her brother the saxophone. Naturally, Sinne started singing. She graduated in 2003 from the Rhythmic Music Conservatory in Esbjerg and then moved to Copenhagen to create her career. Her plan obviously worked.
After putting in her time for years on the road, performing at small clubs and cafes, Sinne won her first Danish Music Award for her album “Waiting For Dawn” in 2007. Her dark vocals and modern interpretation of Nordic jazz touched audiences all over Europe and Asia.
Sinne has many loyal fans in the US, Scandinavia and Asia, especially China and Japan. She is poised for a major breakthrough in the US and regularly tours there. She has performed with American jazz icons including Larry Goldings, Peter Erskine and Ken Peplowski; and at storied jazz clubs including Green Mill in Chicago and Birdland in New York. Everywhere she sings, audiences are mesmerized by her stunning phrasing and scatting, all with natural, perfect pitch.
She is not only a brilliant vocalist, she is also a great songwriter. Her talent for writing and composing won her the prestigious Danish Carl Prize 2018 for Song Of The Year, “Aleppo”, included on her album “Dreams”. She has received numerous accolades, including four Danish Music Awards, the Danish Radio P2 Jazz Prize, the Ben Webster Prize, the French Prix Du Jazz and Queen Ingrid’s Honorary Grant, personally awarded by Queen Margrethe of Denmark.
