“A Night in Bethlehem”

Holiday Jazz featuring Solveig Slettahjell, vocals; Tord Gustavsen, piano; Sjur Miljeteig, trumpet

Tues | Dec 7, 2010 | 7:30pm

Vocals, a muted trumpet, and a piano commanded with a light and evocative touch add up to a nuanced and engaging evening. There are no distracting sleigh bells, no sound effects of trudging through snow, no cheers or clinking glasses, only voice, piano and trumpet. This beautiful trio makes its case simply, during a time often associated with excess. The enjoyment of this evening should persist just like letting snowflakes fall on your tongue and slowly dissolve.
