Tuesday's music tip - Silje Nergaard, "at first light"

Silje Nergaard is a norwegian jazz musician. My first contact with her music was in 2001 with this album, "at first light".

It's a really nice combination of jazz with some singer/songwriter influences, all backed up by her beautiful and a bit childlike sounded voice.

What's really remarkable is the growing complexity of each song. Most of them start with a simple melody that unfolds into a mixture of surprises and, sometimes, loose ends.

My favorite song on this album is "Japanese Blue". It's easy, fresh and airy and shows what a great voice she has.
