MICs Listen to Norway series continues with Come Shine: Do that voodoo
In an unprecedented fashion, Come Shine burst into the national sales charts with their second album “Do that voodoo”. Rave, nearly hysterical reviews followed in the wake of the album’s release, solidifying “Do that voodoo’s” and Come Shine’s positions as jazz release and band of the year. “Do that voodoo’s” focus is on standards – tunes such as My favourite things, Nature Boy and Somewhere over the rainbow that have seen countless interpretations and performances over the years. What sets Come Shine’s renditions apart from the vast majority of standard interpretations is the ensemble’s ability to make the listener feel that the tunes have never heard before. The quartet’s confident, skilled, visionary and aesthetic playing provides a platform from which the tunes grow into new entities – freed from the constraints of past performances and interpretations.
