Lisa Ekdahl show scheduled for London
Jazz fans will be in for a rare treat with a Lisa Ekdahl show scheduled for London in 2011.
The Swedish jazz performer is well known in her home country for her beautiful music and she is set to perform some of her tracks for a British audience with jazz and blues tickets at the Shepherd's Bush Empire.
Taking place on May 21st 2011, Ekdahl may choose to perform songs at her gigs spanning her career, from her debut Swedish language record Vem Vet, or Who Knows? in English, through to her most recent record Give Me That Slow Knowing Smile.
Released in 2009, the English-language album was the ninth studio recording of her career and picked up a nomination for a Swedish Grammy in the best jazz category at the 2010 award ceremony.
Often likened to Diana Krall and Astrud Gilberto in her singing style, Ekdahl's voice may be familiar to Rod Stewart fans as she recorded a duet with him on the track Where or When for his As Time Goes By: Great American Songbook 2 album.
