Time for Everything
This is the debut album of Gunilla Törnfeldt which was released in november 2009. The music is written and arranged by Gunilla for vocals, jazztrio and stringquartet. She started the project in 2006, after having done a lot of arranging for string quartet. With this project she felt that she wanted to write her own music when adding the stringquartet to her already existing jazz quartet. The music reflects upon the feeling that, on the one hand, you have to do everything at once and preferably as quickly as possible, and on the other, the insight that you have to let things take the time they need and that you can't rush or force things in a direction that is not intended at the moment - there is a time for everything. Review in Swedish newspaper DN: "The music is rooted in jazz and the singer/songwriter genre, but is also moving towards other different directions. Törnfeldt dramatizes her lyrics with several pitches of her voice and the arrangements follow in her footsteps. Some things are restful, sometimes almost sacred. Other things are boisterous and drastic. In between there are some pieces that have a little of both of those states - like "Your Messages In the Night - I Don't Want Them". On the whole, Törnfeldt is good at joining different elements and creating a credible expression in harmony with her lyrics. She often sings to someone - perhaps a lover or a friend. In "Come With Me" she switches perspective to third person and describes the loss of a someone close. This is music with several different origins." Johannes Cornell 11/11-2009.
