Some more jazz


Finding nice music can occur in the most awkward of circumstances – in the taxi, on the street, on the slope or on a plane. The latter happened some days ago when I was reading in that “complimentary copy” magazine an artist with quite a strange name – Rebekka Bakken.

She is a Norvegian artist and composer playing some relaxing and mostly vocal jazz, which sounds quite nice. The voice is not amazing, but a more relaxing and mature one. What is more pleasant maybe might be the instrumentation of her songs, very nicely put together.

Another strange thing is that I think most of the new jazz female players I come across lately are extremely good looking, and Rebekka is exactly the case. Check out her pictures on Also, on her website you can listen to her songs for free – no downloading though.

:))) she’s great, how did you find her? I went to one of her concerts a couple of years ago and it was excellent. I’ve been trying to find her albums or something ever since, but in Romania no one seems to have heard of her! However, I see that things are improving :)

Never heard of her.

Things might improve but I am not sure if we would see her in a concert here, any time soon.

i found her in an article from the magazine offered by Malev. She was advertised for a concert in Budapest, so maybe she will move a little bit eastwards and perform a concert here, also.

Paula, maybe leaving her a message on her website might encourage her to do so ;)
