Inger Marie Gundersen Inger Marie Gundersen

Anyone hearing this debut album, Make This Moment, will realise that this is an artist who is totally involved with a kind of music that she really loves. The love and maturity with which she delivers sublime interpretations of both new songs and well-known standards, makes this a debut album of rare quality.

Make this moment was released in Norway in October '04 and it has been well recieved. The song “Will you still love me tomorrow” became a hit on the far most popular Norwegian radiochannel p1.

Inger Marie started singing while she was a little girl trying to walk...

Music, regardless of style, has played a huge and important role in her life. When she grew up she would always listen to her fathers singing and playing, and she soon discovered the joy of performing in front of an audience of family and friends. She grew up in the small town Arendal, on the south coast of Norway.

She has accumulated quite a bit of experience, escpecially in the “jazz/pop” genre. For nearly twenty years she collaborated closely with local musicians and well known musicians with a nationwide reputation.

For a period of six years she was the lead singer of a local bigband, and later on she led her own jazz quintet, “My Favorite Strings”. She also had the pleasure of working closely with one of Norways finest latin-jazz guitarists, Tom Lund, the founder of the renowned group “Trio de Janeiro”. In later years she has done lots of freelance live work with excellent jazz musicians, as well as lending her voice to several CD releases, up until the summer of 2004 when she finally entered a studio to record her own CD release.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
