Album Description

The music on Let’s Run Away is written by Monika with the exception of the latin classic ”Perhaps, Perhaps Perhaps” and the swedish traditional midsummer tune ”Visa vid midsommartid”. Some of the lyrics written and co-written by Monika’s sister Erika Hoffman. The tunes Shooting Star and Everytime You’re Near had a latin touch from the very first beginning but many of Monikas tunes had a pop vibe to them. Especially ”Show Me” and ”Through With You”. Monikas love for Latin Jazz grew stronger during her studies at Berklee. She met professors Oscar Stagnaro (bass) and Mark Walker (drums), both long time members of multi Grammy Award winning legend Paquito D’Rivera’s band. Oscar produced and arranged all the tracks on Let’s Run Away. He also playes bass along side of Mark Walker on drums, Tim Ray on piano (Aretha Franklin, Soul Asylum and Tony Bennett), Paulo Stagnaro on percussion (Paquito D’Rivera, Ricky Martin) and Paquito D’Rivera is featuring on two tracks. The album was recorded in Acton, USA and mixed by Grammy Award Winning composer and mixing engineer Daniel Freiberg (Paquito D’Rivera, Marc Anthony, Gloria Estefan).

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.
