Savage Rose, still going strong after 45 years
In 1967 the two Danish brothers Thomas and Anders Koppel started a band with jazz drummer Alex Riel, guitarist Jens Rugstedt, Flemming Ostermann and Annisette Hansen. They called the band The Savage Rose, and 45 years later Annisette is the only one left. But her voice is such an important part of the band that you never doubt which band you are listening to. Thursday night The Savage Rose played at the Rockefeller Music Hall in Oslo.
Ida Jenshus, Someone To Love
When Ida Jenshus released her debut CD, Color Of The Sun in 2008, she got great reviews. Ida was 21 years old, and she won a well deserved Spellemannpris (the Norwegian Grammy) for the CD. The follow up CD, No Guarantees came two years later and won her another Spellemannpris. This week she releases her third CD, Someone To Love, and we may be looking forward to her third award in March next year.
