'Celeste' is the new album from acclaimed Danish jazz singer, songwriter and guitarist Mette Juul. This is a collection of classic standard tunes you will recognise and some original tracks which will take your breath away.
Mette and I had a conversation about the choice of tracks and her storytelling alongside Mike Moreno (guitar) and Lars Danielsson (cello, celeste, kalimba, melodica, cymbals, double bass).
Celeste is out on Naxos-Prophone records on 10 November 2023.
Thanks to Mette for allowing me to play extracts from Celeste alongside our conversation.
