The New Orleans Project - part 2
The album THE DEAL is the sequel to FROST BLOSSOM and the quartet from there is now expanded to a septet. Both CD:s are recorded at the Small World Studio in New Orleans.
Musty, easy-listening, swinging and down-to-earth 50s jazz with splashes of folk music, where all musicians get good solo space characterize the album. Sjöstrand is responsible for all compositions and arrangements. The gems The Deal and On the Riverwalk evoke genuine swinging New Orleans spirit and Sjöstrand has every reason to be proud of her American friends, who make a thousand sounds blossom!
