MICs Listen to Norway series continues with Radka Toneff: Some time ago - A Collection of her Finest Moments


This compilation was released to commemorate the tragic departure of one of Norwegian jazz’ strongest and most central voices: Radka Toneff. More than twenty years after the loss of Toneff to her inner demons, her interpretations of standards and own tunes still resonate strongly and intensely with her loyal following. “Some time ago…” features Toneff in settings with some of her trusted fellow musicians and a repertoire of demanding standards and self-penned tunes. The emotional output on display is stunning, as is the level of musicianship and interplay.
