CD udgivelsen "Who Calls The Tune" er foreløbig kulminationen af et toårigt samarbejde mellem Maj-Britt Kramer trio og den svenske sangerinde og sangskriver Marie Bergman.

Gruppens musik er - med undtagelse af  enkelte standards, blevet til i tæt  samarbejde mellem Maj-Britt Kramer, Marie Bergman og den svenske pianist Göran Strandberg. Men også Lars Muhl, som leverer enkelte tekster.

”The four of us have different musical religions, and we have to work towards finding a platform – on a personal as well as musical level – on which we can meet. That is what creates so many special experiences. We have a sound together – a Nordic sound into which an ”international” element is woven.”  Marie Bergman in Jazz special.

”The band would give any Euro-jazz ensemble a fright” The Guardian  2002 after a concert i London

”Was diese Qintett den Zuhörern bot, war ein illustres Feuerwerk,.. virtuos, mit verhaltener Leidenschaft und ungebremster Spielfreude.” Flensburger Tageblatt  2002

”jeg tror aldrig hom har sjungat bättre. Tilsammens med Maj-britt Kramer, Benita Haastrup og Jens Skou Olsen – samtliga från Danmrk skaper hon lyrisk, melodisk jazz med afrikansk touch. Det funkar superbra” Afton bladet Stockholm Jazzfestival 2003

I 2003 har bandet spillet bl.a. på Copenhagen Jazzfestival (Copenhagen Jazzhouse) og Stockholm Jazzfestival samt turneer i Norge og Tyskland.

Maj-Britt Kramer - Marie Bergman
Benita Haastrup - Jens Skou Olsen

It was pure magic when danish pianist/composer Maj-Britt Kramer, the drummer Benita Haastrup, basplayer Jens Skou Olsen and the highly acclaimend british saxophonist Andy Sheppard played together in 1996 – both live and in cd. Their cd#s together ”Engang/Once” 1996  and ”Somethingabout heroes” in 1988  were extremely well received. Not only revievers fell in love with the verz nordic records. The music touched all kind of people.

Their new release ”Who calls the tune” is the culmination  so far of collaboration between this band and the swedish singer/songwriter Marie Bergman. The last 3 years the ensemble mainly toured in Scandinavia, Germany and UK.
With small exeptions the music has been created in close collaboration between Maj-Britt Kramer, Marie Bergman.
