Daybreak: New Release from Storyville

“Enjoy this music with a Sunday morning cup of coffee, a late night whisky or, who knows, at Daybreak.”

Storyville Records presents “Daybreak” by the Icelandic saxophone player Sigurdur Flosasan and Danish Hammond B3 player Kjeld Lauritsen. The album is a follow-up to their previous success “Nightfall”. On both albums musicians embrace the ballad repertoire in collaboration with internationally renowned guitarist Jacob Fischer and swing drummer Kristian Leth.

Daybreak consists of beautiful jazz ballads with a Scandinavian sound, inspired by the unique feeling of when night turns into day. The music depicts the atmosphere of musicians playing together after a late night gig and the relaxed mood of the scene gives a special feeling that connects the people who are left. Sigurdur Flosason explains this feeling as:

“The morning’s music has nothing to prove. It simply is, neither old nor new, complex nor simple. In a way it is the core and the essence of all music.”

On this album the musicians has taken the idea even further, explicitly choosing songs such as “Morning Glory” and “The Night We Called it a Day” – songs that all relate to daybreak.
