Description:Culturally equidistant from Europe and the Unites States, Japan has a unique jazz market that embraces the best of both worlds. This offering from Spice of Life, a Japanese independent label that specializes in Swedish jazz and other genres of sophisticated music for adults, is a good example.

Margareta Bengtson is a Swedish singer and harpist who had been with The Real Group, a super-duper a capella outfit, for more than 20 years, and this is her first solo album. With a pure, beautiful soprano voice and astounding technique, she tackles well-known standards and bossa nova classics effectively. The medium-sized jazz combo and a 22-piece orchestra provides a lush background with tasteful arrangements.

Bentson's beautiful voice is very effective on bossa nova ballads such as "Corcovado" and "Dindi" (she accompanies herself on harp on the latter), and her capella introduction of "I'm Old Fashioned" is devastatingly beautiful. She shows off her scatting and vocalese skills with stunning "Twisted," a smash hit by Lambert, Hendricks and Ross. The big band-ish arrangement of this tune is also excellent!

Without mentioning Jan Lundgren, it is clear that Sweden has many talented jazz musicians, and she is clearly one of them. If you are a fan of jazz vocal, you should definitely check her out!

Produced by Pal Svenre. Recorded by Janne Hansson at Atlantis Studio, Stockholm, Sweden in February 2006. This Japanese edition was released by Spice of Life in May 2007.
