She can do it all: fusion, rock and jazz. At the tender age of 32 she already has a stupendous carrier, and she has contributed to breaking down the rigid division into genres; in addition she has attracted notice by awakening an interest in jazz in the young, traditionally rock-oriented audience. Cæcilie Norby was born on 9 September 1964 in Fredriksberg, Denmark, into a musical family: her father, Erik Norby, is a renowned score composer, and her mother, Solveig Lumholt, an opera singer. The family's only record with rhythmic music was one with the singer Nancy Wilson, and together with the Beatles tapes it became well worn. She went to the singing school of Sankt Annæ Gymnasium, and then followed a year at a folk high school with theatre as her main subject. In the summer of 1982, when she participated at a jazz festival at Brandbjerg, she was one of read more...

Caecilie Norby is one of the best living danish jazz singers-11 nominations for "Danish Vocal Jazz Album of the Year". Although she grew with classical music - her father was a conductor and composer, her mother an opera singer, she turned first to jazz(as part of the Jazzz/Funk group Frontline) , then to pop/rock ( three albums with the group 'One Two sold 250.000 albums only in Denmark), developing later her career mostly in jazz with four of her seven solo albums released by Blue Note. In 'Arabesque', her debut with ACT, she returns to her classical roots.She wrote both the music(some of it together with her husband, bassist Lars Danielsson who is also the producer of her albums) and the texts for most of the 15 tracks of the album, based on classical themes by Ravel, Faure, Satie, Rimsky-Korsakov, Debussy in addition to some tracks composed by Michel Legrand , one Abbey Lincoln song(Wholly Earth) and one composition by her father. As expected, 'Arabesque' is a marvelous blend of classical and jazz, played with great skill by some of the best artists in european jazz -Lars Danielsson, Bugge Wesseltoft, Katrine Gislinge(piano), Ulf Wakenius, Palle Mikkelborg, Hans Ulrok and Anders Engen. Melodic, original (just listen to the funky swing interpretation of 'Bei mir bist du schoen' ), elegant, slow, melancholic music played with great talent.
