• Nordjyske praises vocal lecturer

    11th of December 2015 · tags:

    Assistant Professor Margrete Grarup teaches vocal at the IM program at the Academy in Aalborg, where she herself also graduated many years ago. She recently has released a CD where her jazzy voice is backed by a number of top names in Danish jazz, including Mads Vinding, Carsten Dahl, Marilyn Mazur and Poul Halberg.

    The CD now has been reviewed by Nordjyske Stiftstidende. Her debut album "Walk with me" is for the North Jutland jazz audience no overwhelming surprise. The album fully confirms what has long been known locally (and what the top of the Danish jazz now realize): "In Grarup we have a singer who has both the technique and soul to interpret and make new out of both old standards and her own material. She has a big, strong voice that sometimes moves into a spiritual ground sound."

    Listen to samples from the CD on Soundcloud.
