ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Good music, great sound. Winnie always takes care of business when it comes to playing her music".
- George Garzone

"Surrounded by great musicians on her debut album Till We Meet Again, Danish vibist Winnie Dahlgren successfully created a macrocosm of rich musical diversity. This makes for a musically delightful album."
- Phil Wilson


Winnie Dahlgren provides the listener with a distinct musical experience with delicate twists.
Her classical background showcases her musical technique as a performer, but her use and
knowledge of Latin, world music and jazz styles give her performances a modern quality.
Her compositions contain a contemporary harmonic universe marked with Latin and world influences,
and run the gamut of playful and energetic to sweet and endearing pieces with thoughtful melodies.
As a vibraphonist leading her quintet, the band presents a unique instrumental sound.

When writing music I can’t help but be inspired by my surroundings. Sometimes the music is inspired by one single person or event, other times it’s solely about the music. When the latter is the case and it’s time to title a song, it’s the spirit of the moment that brings forth the words. The titles on this album are a mix of these two scenarios. For “I Wouldn’t Mind”, “Now Let’s Move On”, and “Join Me” the titles can be open to your own interpretation as I simply let the “title muse” inspire me. The rest of compositions have a more specific meaning or event leading up to them.

“1-2-60” was written for my parents the year they both celebrated their 60th birthday. “To My Grandmother” is also a birthday song, this one inspired by Danish children songs. “Sunset Over Noyalito Avenue” was written at a time when a relationship to a friend was changing, causing me to reflect on my life. “Yeleni” is my African name. While visiting Mali in 2000/01, I was given this name by one of the local majors in Bamako, as it is tradition to give an African name to visitors. After having observed me for a few days, he told me I shall be called Yeleni. He explained that the name means a celebration of the African woman and is a symbol of a strong woman. What an honor to have been given such a powerful name! In 1999/2000 I went to Mozambique, on my very first trip to Africa, to visit a friend in Maputo and to celebrate the beginning of the new millennium. This trip marked me with very strong emotions and powerful memories. Not knowing when I would be able to return to this beautiful place or when I would see my friend made me write “Till We Meet Again”.
