Last time available! 1990 release on UK Smekkleysa/ Mother/ One Little Indian, a jovial jazz album the Icelandic nymph cut with a jazz trio while she was still the vocalist for the Sugarcubes. 16 tracks, with all but two sung in Icelandic: covers of Leiber / Stoller's 'Ruby Baby' & Osccar Hammerstein II/ Jerome Kern's 'I Can't Help Loving That Man'. Highly acclaimed & highly recommended for anyone looking to augment their Bjork or Sugarcubes collections!

CD Reviews

Sheer genius

(5 out of 5 stars)

"A friend once asked me why I bought this album. My response was "why WOULDN'T I want an album that included a jazz recording of 'O Mein Papa' in Icelandic?""
Amazing

"I actually got this CD to use as background music for my Traveller campaign set in the Sword Worlds. It gives a nice twist to the familiar, yet has an alien quality to it. Many of her CDs have an alien sound to them that lend well to gaming background music."
Not essential, but not bad

"this is a nice little cd. basically, it's a young Bjork backed by a jazz combo. it gets into some painfully average "sitting in a lounge, sipping on cocktails" kind of dinner jazz; but if you're a fan of Bjork....this could be a nice listen. not bad."
