New Album, Curiosity (2014)
Vivian Buczek has released her fourth solo album Curiosity where she has created an exciting and curious jazz experience with ingenious and imaginative arrangements together with Martin Sjöstedt’s Trio ́ fantastic trio who backs up Vivian’s magnificent vocals in a highly elegant, docile and dynamic way. The album serves a magical mix of jazz standards and new, original compositions with influences from RnB, latin and pop written by Vivian and other contemporary composers. Wildly but in a natural way Vivian and the trio set off in a more modern sound that in turn creates an interesting fusion in today’s jazz.
