Read the press release for Stockholm Sweetnin'
With only email for introductions and planning, Connie and The Hot Club of Sweden met at Real Music Studios in Stockholm in January, 2006 and recorded 15 tunes in 2 1/2 days. "The recording process was magic," she said later. "It's the most enjoyable time I've ever had in the studio." And the result, Stockholm Sweetnin,' is both stunning and uniquely Connie. Hot Club of Sweden guitarists Gustav Lundgren and Andreas Öberg and bassist Hampus Lundgren form the core rhythm section, with brilliant solo turns by each player. Guest artists from both sides of the Atlantic add their unique voices on saxophone, clarinet, accordion and percussion, but the most distinctive voice belongs to Connie, as vocalist, arranger, and lyricist (on Öberg's "Autumn in Kokkola").
