Jeanette Lindstrom

Jeanette Lindström is the jazz singer that prompted legendary producer Quincy Jones to voice the portentous words: “An old soul in a young singer”. And also: “She really understands what jazz is all about!” The year was 1995 and Jeanette Lindström made her major breakthrough, on a broad front. The calendar tells us it’s now a different year, and today Jeanette Lindström is one of Sweden's most prized jazz singers.

Jeanette Lindström is one of Sweden’s leading jazz singers and composers. In January she won a Swedish Grammis for Best Jazz Album of the Year with her latest album “Attitude & Orbit Control”. She has that ability to set the imagination of the listener in movement - with her voice, her music as well as with her words. Her sixth solo album Attitude & Orbit Control is hard proof. A space odessey of sorts, interpersonal as well as interstellar. Micro- as well as macrocosmic forces at play. Fellow travelers include co-writing guest vocalist Robert Wyatt, a new band and new co-producer and drummer Magnus �-ström of e.s.t. as well as lyric contributor Sidsel Endresen. Jeanette Lindström wanted to move on, this time further than before. To write in a new way, to concentrate more on production and instrumentation. She wanted it to really be “Jeanette-music”, whatever that would sound like.
