Internationally acclaimed jazz vocalist Sinne Eeg arrives in Oakland for a rare performance celebrating the release of EEG-FONNESBÆK, her new duo CD with celebrated bassist Thomas Fonnesbæk.
Sinne Eeg's distinctive vocals have earned her a loyal and rapidly growing fan base in her native country of Denmark and around the world. Considered the preeminent jazz vocalist in Scandinavia, Sinne has already made her mark in Japan, China, and throughout Europe with her exquisite live performances and award-winning studio recordings.
Although she has released seven albums to wide acclaim in Europe and Japan, the depth and beauty of Sinne's artistry has largely been a secret here in the U.S. until her recent live performances, where she has mesmerized audiences on her tours throughout the West Coast and Southwest. Now, with the release of EEG FONNESBÆK, her first CD to be introduced to a wide U.S. audience, jazz lovers throughout North America will be able to experience one of the finest jazz vocalists to come along since Sarah Vaughan and Carmen McRae.
"Eeg's soulful delivery, flawless pitch, exceptional diction, and impressive scat stand in strong relief to the sole accompaniment of Thomas Fonnesbaek's bass."

"This is an outstanding album, jazz singing at its very best and strongly recommended to all who love to hear good songs sung well. Sinne's vocal sound is rich, fluid and nowhere is there any hint that she is not singing in her own language."
"Her name is Sinne Eeg, and she can sing a standard like it's a holy experience."
