These are videos that I like: Sissel Vera Pettersen


Today’s featured videos put the spotlight on vocalist Sissel Vera Pettersen.

Here she is at the National Art Gallery in Copenhagen, as part of the city’s 2011 jazz festival.  She’s performing the song “November” with her trio Equilibrium.  They have two albums that come highly recommended.  Their 2014 release Liquid Light received a nice write-up on this site (go read it) and I gave a strong recommendation for their 2016 live performance recording (go read it at The Bandcamp Daily).

Your video personnel:  Sissel Vera Pettersen (voice, live electronics), Joachim Badenhorst (clarinet, bass clarinet), and Mikkel Ploug (guitar).

And our second videos is a duet between Pettersen and fellow vocalist Theo Bleckmann.  This performance is at the 2008 Copenhagen Jazz Festival.

Your video personnel:  Sissel Vera Pettersen (voice, live electronics) and Theo Bleckmann (voice, live electronics).

Bleckmann has a new album out.  Elegy was just released on ECM Records, and you can check it out on the ECM Records site.
