Cecilie Grundt & Vigleik Storaas” is the new jazz album by Norwegian saxophonist Cecilie Grundt and award-winning pianist Vigleik Storaas. The album was recorded in February at Øra Studio and released on October 21, 2022 on Grundt Records, the first release on this new label. The album consists of seven classic jazz songs.

Cecilie Grundt and Vigleik Storaas met at the Music Conservatory in Trondheim in 2015 and have since worked together in several projects, especially in the Cecilie Grundt Quartet. In 2020, the band released their critically acclaimed album “Order and Chaos”, which contains eight of Grundt’s own compositions.

On their new album, the duo is dedicated to the Great American Songbook and jazz standards, the common language of the jazz tradition. In her own words: “This album is unlike any other recordings we have made so far, as it is our first album to consist entirely of classic jazz songs.””The album is something that many people can identify with because it interprets well-known songs. Our main focus was to get the creative energy from the spontaneous interaction, and for this reason some of the songs start with a free-flowing improvisation instead of the melody”.

Vigleik Storaas is one of the leading Norwegian pianists with an impressive artistic oeuvre and an important pedagogue at the Music Conservatory in Trondheim. Since the 80s he has played and toured internationally and released several solo albums. His first two albums “Bilder” and “Andre Bilder” were awarded the Norwegian Grammy Award in 1996 and 1998 (Vigleik Storaas Trio). Vigleik Storaas has worked with the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, Knut Riisnæs, Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen, Karin Krog, John Surman, Warne Marsh and John Scofield, among others.
