Sidsel Endresen & Stian Westerhus: Didymoi Dreams
Don´t stop to think about it, just buy the new album by Sidsel Endresen and Stian Westerhus at once. "Didymoi Dreams" (Rune Grammofon 2012) was recorded at a Nattjazz festival concert in Bergen 26 May 2011.
As usual I had a short but positive review of the concert in this blog, and it sounds great on CD too (seems like CD is the only format from Rune this time?)!
The way these musicians communicate is just unbelievable!
The record has eleven tracks, but the music flows along in longer seamless chapters, and there is no reason why you should not play the whole album.
Since we have tracks anyway, check out "Immaculate heart", where Sidsel Endresen sounds desperate, singing while breathing in, and Stian Westerhus will leave you in fear of getting electric shocks. Absolutely cool!
