Enjoy the beautiful, soulful jazz vocals of youthful Danish vocalist Malene Mortensen on Desperado which features two bonus tracks.

Malene has combined a set of personal originals with songs that she just plain likes. Some jazz, some pop. However, there is no doubt that Malene Mortensen’s basic approach is that of a jazz vocalist. She dares give her material that essential personal twist - often with surprising results. Her phrasing is blessed with a natural swing, her lyrical interpretations have an easy flow, and her vocal control is supple and virtuosic.

The album includes John Mayer’s irresistible City Love and Branford Marsalis’ new evergreen Another Day. You will find Laughin' at Life, which Billie Holiday made famous, and The Eagles’ classic tune Desperado. Several tracks were written by Malene either on her own or in close collaborations. Some of these are humorous thoughts on the plight of a young woman, others are melancholy love songs. The selection includes a wonderful poem by the 19th century Danish poet, Emil Aarestrup, set to music by Malene.

It is a pleasure to hold a truly well-produced product in your hand - from the inviting cover to the last note of music. That’s Malene's Desperado.
