The female side of jazz. Cæcilie Norby, the grand dame of Scandinavian jazz, brings together female musicians from several generations and countries on "Sisters in Jazz": Rita Marcotulli (piano / IT), Nicole Johänntgen (saxophone / CH), Hildegunn Øiseth (trumpet, NO), Dorota Pietrowska (drums, PL) and Lisa Wulff (bass, DE) celebrate jazz and song classics by Betty Carter, Joni Mitchell, Nina Simone or Abbey Lincoln and Norby's own compositions together.

Cæcilie Norby
The daughter of classical musicians - her mother was an opera singer, her father a composer - Caecilie Norby has moved musically between worlds from the very beginning - jazz, blues, soul, pop, rock or classical music - Norby masters it all, and always in an absolutely recognisable way.She was the first Danish artist to be signed to the legendary Blue Note label, and has worked with many international stars of various disciplines. The most important among them is bassist Lars Danielsson, who became not only her husband but also the producer and partner of almost all her projects.With almost half a million albums sold, Caecilie Norby is one of the most successful jazz artists in Europe and one of the most important figures in bridging the gap between pop and jazz.
