Fearless "cover versions" of compositions in classical music: from John Dowland to Poulenc.Music for a While, lead by Norway's uncrowned queen of cabaret, Tora Augestad, release their long-awaited second album with the ambiguous title Graces that refrain. As leading lady for Music for a While, Augestad fronts a dream team of Norwegian jazz musicians: Stian Carstensen (Farmers Market), Mathias Eick (Jaga Jazzist, Manu Katché), Martin Taxt (Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, Koboku Senju) and PÄl Hausken (In the Country, Susanna). What particularly characterizes Music for a While, is the group's personal, organic and creative treatment of the material. On their critically acclaimed first album, Weill Variations, the band did original and fresh versions of Kurt Weill's immortal music. Graces that refrain features fearless "cover versions" of compositions in classical music: from John Dowland to Poulenc.
