"Press Quotes"

"The singer and composer Jeanette Lindström is on to something big, we already know that. Here, the music has bloomed in a way which actually surprises me. Partly it's about a, for being jazz, unusually strong melodic element, partly a developed ability to organically incorporate pop- and soul influences, and also - which is worth noticing; good lyrics."
"The opening track Always is a gem"
-Svenska Dagbladet (Sweden)



"Lindström is breaking new ground by taking care of everything. She's a singer/songwriter in jazz. And that really means a difference. On the new "In The Middle Of This Riddle" she stands out more clearly and richer than ever before."
-Dagens Nyheter (Sweden)



"The songs feels stronger than ever. Jeanette Lindström is now one of the best composers we have in this country. Every tune lives on its own strength."
"For some reason, everything this girl touches becomes positively beautiful. "In The Middle Of This Riddle" is a milestone in Swedish jazz.
-Länstidningen, Östersund (Sweden)


"Lindstrom sings in such a way as to invite the listener into her own world. Like waking up on a warm summer day, welcomed by birds singing. It's a world full of depth, dimension and beauty. Production and sound are first rate. A refreshing work of art, listening to Walk not only invites repeated listening but may well become a classic for years to come. Lindstrom's silky smooth delivery, as well as insightful arranging make this one of the top recordings of 2003."
-Jazzreview.com


"One of Jeanette Lindström's strengths is that she avoids every cliché and sculpts a uniquely personal sound."
"I dare at this early stage conclude that Walk is a sure candidate for best jazz album of the year."
"Lindström allows the lyrics to carry and play an integral part in the songs, a way to create moods with poetical metaphors, at times melancholy but never sentimental."

"Dusty Groove"

Dusty Groove about "In The Middle Of This Riddle"...
"The boldest set to date from Swedish singer Jeanette Lindstrom -- a record that soars along warmly jazzy inflections, but still retains some of the airier touches of her earlier work! Jeanette's got a style here that's really unique -- jazz vocals, but without many obvious links to other eras of the genre -- sung sometimes in a mode that's more personal and singer/songwriter oriented, but without any of the indulgences of that side of the spectrum as well. Instrumentation is sometimes spare, but perfectly placed."


...about "Walk"
"One of the most compelling vocalists to come out of the recent Scandinavian scene -- a singer whose tones and inflections remind us strongly of vocal jazz experimentalists of the 70s European years -- but one who also steps out here with a style that's often more modern and contemporary! There's an airy feel to Jeanette's tunes that's carried off nicely by small combo instrumentation on piano, guitar, vibes, trumpet, and bass -- sometimes used in ethereal ECM-ish ways, but balanced with a warmer sound from Lindstrom's vocals that avoids any of the cliches of that sort of style." - www.dustygroove.com

Bio

Jeanette Lindström....
..….is the singer that once prompted legendary producer Quincy Jones to voice the portentous words: “An old soul in a young singer”, and also: “She really understands what jazz is all about!”. Today Jeanette Lindström is one of Sweden’s most prized jazz singers, but at the same time she has never been opposed to stepping outside of the borders of jazz. The priority is her own band and her own compositions. Composing and performing her own material, both music and lyrics, has always played a central role in Jeanette’s musicianship.

What constitutes a good song? A catchy refrain? The perfect bridge? A hook that won’t leave you once heard? What makes a singer? Perfect pitch, stage presence, big vocal range? Not easily answered questions. The outlook and the inclinations/taste of the observer/listener probably more important than any generic or axiomatic truths. If indeed there are such. The technical aspects… of course, a good singer will sing in tune and will have the ability to carry the tune while also having the listener believe in what she/he is conveying. The diction, the timing, and acting, to get under the skin of the audience, to move, to capture and hold their interest. For two sets a night, or for the duration of an album or for that matter just for one song. It’s intangible yet very real, some have the talent innately, others don’t.

Swedish singer/composer/lyricist Jeanette Lindström is threefold gifted. She has that ability to set the imagination of the listener in movement; with her voice, her music as well as with her words. In synch. Her sixth solo album Attitude & Orbit Control serves as hard proof. A space odessey of sorts, interpersonal as well as interstellar. Micro- as well as macrocosmic forces at play. Fellow travelers include co-writing guest vocalist Robert Wyatt, a whole new band and new co-producer and drummer Magnus Öström of e.s.t. as well as lyrics contributor Sidsel Endresen.

The new album, entitled Attitude & Orbit Control, will be released in October by Diesel Music/Playground Music Scandinavia. As on most of her records A&OC comprises mainly original material, one cover, The Flaming Lips’ song All We Have Is Now, the only exception this time.

Jeanette Lindström has always been an artist keen to tour and her travels have brought her to many parts of the world, the Nordic countries as well as France, Belgium, UK, Japan and Canada. France and Canada have come to be something of second home countries to Jeanette, and her latest albums have also found their way to the hearts of the French record-buying public.
