The music is instrumental interpretations of six Danish songs by Carl Nielsen, Kai Normann Andersen, Sebastian and Oluf Ring and four American songs immortalized by Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald and others. The book contains the lyrics, the story behind each song, and an essay and a poem by jazz lover and poet Peter Laugesen.
