Elvira Nikolaisen & Mathias Eick - I Concentrate On You

I Concentrate On You is a collaborative album by singer/songwriter Elvira Nikolaisen and jazz musician Mathias Eick (Jaga Jazzist). The two Norwegian artists were introduced to each other recently and to judge by the album the time was more than ripe for them to work together. The pair have dipped into the great American songbook composed by names like Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Arlen/Mercer and Rodgers/Hart and come up with an astonishing 10 track album that is one of the best I've heard all year. It's an absolutely gorgeous record by two musicians (and a few well-chosen friends) who's obviously in love with the material, a record for dark autumn evenings, especially of the romantic kind. The title track, Cole Porter's "I Concentrate On You" is stunning, but it's only the tip of the iceberg.
