Info for The Way You Look Tonight

A tribute to Dorothy Fields: This album is a love letter to this remarkable woman who was way ahead of her time. The album features one of Sweden’s leading jazz vocalists and a chamber orchestra, is a celebration of the great American librettist and lyricist Dorothy Fields (1904-1974). She wrote the lyrics for more than 400 songs including classics such as “I’m in the Mood for Love”, “On the Sunny Side of the Street” and “The Way You Look Tonight”.

On the 20th of January 2009 Barack Obama was inagurated as the president 44th of America. In his speech he said: “Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin again the work of remaking America”. With those words he echoed the lyrics from the song Pick yourself up, written by Dorothy Fields in 1936.

Dorothy Fields (July 15, 1904– March 28, 1974) was an American librettist and lyricist. She wrote over 400 songs, 15 broadway musicals and 26 films. Her strong carachterisations, her precise language and heartfelt and humorous approach has granted her a special place in the history of American music and popular culture.

Isabella Lundgren
is one of Sweden's foremost jazz singers and a world-class artist. With a fantastic voice and unique intensity, she has, like few others, the ability to captivate her audience.

At the age of 18, Isabella Lundgren left Karlstad for New York where she studied and performed between 2006 and 2010. She played on all sorts of legendary stages, but also mixed a perhaps bohemian artistic life with a destructive one.

Isabella talks about waking up in a bed somewhere. She doesn't know where she is or who is lying next to her, but as her gaze travels over empty bottles and bags, it finally finds a mirror, and she sees herself for the first time in a long time. She breaks up, moves home, gets sober and starts studying to become a priest...

Isabella Lundgren has released several critically acclaimed albums in Sweden and Japan, was awarded Orkesterjournalen's Golden Disc in 2015 and has been nominated for a Grammy. In 2015, Isabella was also awarded a Jazz Cat as Musician of the Year at the Swedish Radio Jazz Cat Gala and in addition to this, she has also been awarded the Monica Zetterlund Scholarship, the STIM Scholarship, the Louis Armstrong and Anita O'Day Scholarship, the City of Stockholm's Cultural Scholarship and the Gustaf Fröding Scholarship.

In 2016, Isabella gave an acclaimed Summer Talk in P1 where she highlighted several of the life issues that are also reflected and central to her music.

"This divinely gifted singer is one of the best things to happen to the Swedish jazz scene. Let me just say that Isabella Lundgren has a seriousness that is unique. She makes time slow down just by being. It's called charisma and presence. And then she sings fantastically. With a completely natural flowing timing and a low-key but very expressive phrasing. The fact that she has something to say with her lyrics also contributes to the magic." - Dan Backman, SVD
