The jazz vocalist, band leader and composer Sofia Jernberg met Olav Luksengård Mjelva in 2009 and was immediately seduced by the Hardanger fiddle tradition and the traditional music. This marks the start of a long and challenging project. Jazznytt (NO) calls the album: “a quiet explosion of feelgood music making, you can almost hear the smile of the musicians when they stomp the asymmetrical rhythms.”

Contributing to this feelgood music we have the renowned and versatile Trondheim Jazz Orchestra. The project is based on enlarging the richness of details in the solistic Hardanger fiddle tradition, which traditionally has been the most usual way to use the instrument. The big ensemble works as a magnifying glass where they search for the details, mixing them up, throwing them around, and evaluating. With Olav and the Hardanger fiddle in the centre.

Alongside Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, Alexander Zethson and Lene Grenager is a part of the team, and have arranged several tunes. The rest is arranged by Sofia herself.

The album was recorded in 2014, and the ensemble has done several concerts together. The project premiered at Vozzjazz in 2012, they played at Riksscenen and Umeå Jazz festival in 2013, and later played at Stockholm Jazz Festival in 2014.
