Reviews

Cathrine Legardh har en dejlig stemme, en suveræn teknik og har udviklet en evne til at finde materiale der ligger godt for hendes røst – hun synger fandeme dejligt og der er en poestisk indlevelse og mærkbart engagement. Cathrine Legardhs anden cd leverer suveræne vokallækkerier. Men man savner kant. Hatten af for vovemodet, når den musiklæreruddannede jazzsangerinde Cathrine Legardh på sin anden soloudgivelse serverer en samling sange, der af de fleste jazzlyttere forbindes med det svenske ikon Monica Zetterlund, hvis fortolkninger af klassikere som ’Walking My Baby Back Home’ (’Sakta vi gå genom stan’, som den hedder i Beppe Wolgers forsvenskning) og visen om det skønne Värmland hører hjemme i guldkategorien. For det er sgu da at spænde ambitionsbuen med en vis dødsforagt. Og når dertil kommer livtag med en stribe andre sange, der også har en vis status, så er det altså ret respektindgydende. Og når dertil kommer livtag med en stribe andre sange, der også har en vis status, så er det altså ret respektindgydende.
