Christmas Is A Lullaby

Hilde Louise's Christmas Album

Hilde Louise’s Christmas Album

«The snow is snowin’, the wind is blowin'», but Christmas comes along to me as a soothing lullaby. And that is why I love the American classics so much. They are uplifting, funny, warm, and very often they are delivered by extraordinary jazz musicians. They make me happy, and Christmas should be a happy time. In the middle of that dark and heavy period of the year when summer is far and you dont remember what it feels like to walk bare foot in the grass. A time to forget and forgive and look forward. «Next year all our troubles will me miles away». A Lullaby.

This year I have made my own merry and swinging Christmas album. With people that I love and admire, and that have made a great impact on my life, both personally and professionaly. The horns: Kåre Nymark jr., Atle Nymo and Jørgen Gjerde. My star of a pianoplayer and producer, Anders Aarum. Ever so steady and cherful, Jens Fossum on the bass. Bluesy and swinging like no other guitarplayer in Norway; Svein Erik Martinsen, and the only new boy in the class; gentle, grooving and smiling all the time; Hermund Nygård on the drums.
The sugar on top is made out of two international stars; Norways soul queen, Noora Noor, who sings along on «What Are You Doing New Years Eve?» and my dear friend, Ane Brun, who acompanies me on my first original Christmas song; Christmas Is A Lullaby.
Preorder the album on iTunes! There is also a video coming up and some other stuff. Keep you posted!

Lunacy (Månesjuk) – the film

So our little film is finished. Made in one take in my favourite bar in Oslo, Palace Grill. The term «Månesjuk» could be translated into «lunacy» in english. It describes how the full moon can make you sleepless. And further on, the way sleeplessness can make people a little bit crazy. Lack of sleep increase our weaknesses.

I think the world is a bit «månesjuk» in general these days.
Wish you all good nights sleep!

Autumn in Oslo

While summer hesitates to let go of Oslo, I rehearse christmas classics with my band, also writing one original song for the album, that will be available on November 25th.
We are recording in the legendary SONO Records Studio in Prague, and I am thrilled to bring my boys away for this jazz session.

In the meantime we are finishing up my latest music video for «Månesjuk» (eng. moon sick) Filmed by the gifted photographer and graphic designer Anna Julia Granberg, Blunderbuss. A fun experiment made in the bar of Palace Grill in Oslo, made with one still camera and no clips.



While waiting for this to come, you can enjoy my previous Blunderbuss film.
