Storyville Records presents a new record featuring prominent Danish jazz musicians Mads Vinding (bass) and Carsten Dahl (piano) with Margrete Grarup (vocal) and Marilyn Mazur (percussion).

This CD is a continuous journey through a landscape constantly changing. Along the way, your ears will encounter simplicity,  fragility, ferocity, sensitivity and a special sense of greatness in the smallest of details. From beautiful ballads of stormy moods to swinging jazz - everything beautifully executed by Margrete Grarup’s unique and expressive voice. Each track has an identity of its own - still, they all come together and make a whole.

Walk with Me includes new, wondrous takes on classics such as “Georgia on My Mind”, “Strange Fruit” and “My Funny Valentine” along with some of the musician’s own compositions which in combination creates a soulfully meditative and with every turn delightfully unknown journey to be experienced. Margrete Grarup is an educated soloist from Nordjysk Musikkonservatorium and knows how to balance the power of her voice with delicate nuances and a certain humility.

Do listen to Walk with Me from beginning to end and share a traveller’s experience with us!

Reviews

Jazznyt

"I 2014 modtog Margrete Grarup den Nordjyske Jazzpris. At det var en nordjysk pris var ikke tilfældigt. Det var nemlig i selvsamme region at hun siden 1990 havde huseret i jazz, blues og gospel sammenhænge - både som underviser og udøvende kunstner. I resten af Danmark havde man ikke opdaget hende. Det bliver der lavet om på nu. Hun har i flere år samarbejdet med bassisten Mads Vinding, som også medvirker på denne plade. Sammen med andre markante musikere som Carsten Dahl på piano, Marilyn Mazur på percussion, Poul Halberg på guitar og flere andre har hun lavet et album sprængfyldt med jazzkærlighed... Grarup har en markant stemme og det er derfor at denne plade fungerer. Hendes gospel og bluesprægede stemme til den lidt mørke side er i særklasse. Der er styr på intonationer og fraseringer. Hendes sammenkobling af Strange Fruit og Summertime er intens og meget vellykket. Der er en masse personlighed puttet ind i den præstation."

Jazz Weekly

"Margrete Grarup has a husky voice and is able to make it folksy, intimate and flexible. She teams up with Mads Vinding/b, Carsten Dahl/p, Marily Mazur/perc, Poul Halberg/g, Peter Weniger/sax and Rasmus Stenholm/B3 in a mix and match collection of interpretations."
