A Fantastic Jazz CD With Bjork

Hello dear blog friends. I hope you had a lovely weekend!

I want to share one of my favorite music CD’s with you. It was given to me by a friend many years ago, and it is still one of my favorite CDs. It is called Gling Glo and features a very young Bjork (yes the iconic rock artist) singing jazz tunes in Icelandic! I love it when I clean the house and I love it as party background music! It has all the ingredients: It is happy, upbeat, unpredictable (with Bjork’s special voice) and it is filled with just good music. In my humble opinion, this CD is truly fantastic!

(Funny, this is how I like to decorate too. Warm, inviting, classic with an unexpected modern twist!).

Take a listen! (Here’s one of the tunes from the album performed live)

Bjork – 1990

This CD was recorded in 1990, but you can still buy it on Amazon, among other places.

    I love that album cover – it’s so cute! I’m going to have to listen to the songs too. It sounds so interesting.

    Hah! My all time favorite pick-me-up album. Bjork’s happiness is so infectious in these tunes. Thanks for the reminder.

    Thank you so much for visiting my blog :)
    Yours is VERY lovely by the way…I will have to start spending some time in here!

    I had to mention that I love Bjork, so it was great seeing that video. What a cool and eclectic mix of jazz and her voice!

    From the early days of the Sugarcubes till now, she remains one of our household favourites too.
    My husband is a great music collector and I think he has her full house – I must remind him to play them more often.

    Have you been to Iceland? I am soo dreaming of going there – mystical, magical place I hear. Something to explore on the back of an Icelandic pony – camera in hand!
