Five years have passed since Norwegian quintet Music for a While released its debut, Weill Variations (Grappa, 2007), a collection of fresh, outspoken versions of Kurt Weill songs. Now this dream team band-headed by cabaret diva Tora Augestad, with accordionist Stian Carstensen (leader of Farmers Market), trumpeter Mathias Eick (from Jaga Jazzist and a leader in his own right), tubaist Martin Taxt (from the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra and Koboku Senju) and drummer Pål Hausken (from In The Country)-delivers a magnificent chamber jazz transformations of classical repertoire, songs ranging from. The early love song of Bertold Brecht and Franz S Bruinier, "Erinnerung an die Marie . " gets a light, playful arrangement, performed by Augestad with the heartfelt, forgiving perspective of an adult who looks on her youthful, mischievous days

Anne-Sofie von Otter 's Music for a While finds her diving into geographically diverse songs of the Baroque period with the same flair and joyful curiosity that animate all of her projects. She shows a refreshing willingness to change her vocal sound and technique to suit the task at hand, leaving whatever operatic ego she carries with her at the door. Overall the album succeeds well on its own terms, although the Dowland songs and some of the Purcell selections sound too easygoing, too emotionally uncomplicated. The intimacy is present, but the intensity is often missing, undercut by the deliberately scaled down nature of von Otter 's delivery. But her sense of phrasing and general affect is spot on, as is her English diction.
