TV: Tom Mathisen has a versatile career, the very most within humorfaget. When he gets time, he shall also record jazzplata he has promised his wife since they met 42 years ago. Tom is known from the visegruppa Turn, humortrioen Prima Vera (in the green stillongs), the duo Fake/Mathisen, over 40 recordings, a number of tv series and two movies. And - not to forget - the "Narrator" of the series about the Brothers Valley with kirkvaag stated, Lystad and Mjøen. How went it when "serious artists" interpreted humorlåtene his:
Sol Heilo: "Ha Ha he he ho (The crazy has it good)" (Tom Mathisen / Herodes falsk / Jahn)
So! The sun has been the smoothest of this year's artists, but here it goes wrong. This song from 1981 has a pretty high pace initially, but the Sun distorts it even further a few notches. For many notches.
Sol's version emerges as a geriljaangrep with the wrong weapons. As in Katzenjammer-period of the switch she instruments, and it is both fussy and tiring. On top of this she finds not quite the tone, and it goes so fast that she is not with words either. There were some others who did it?
the Sun does not output the song one iota. She will much, but fall head over heels - and the only thing I'll want to after this is to play the original. The sun looked forward to "trashe" it, as she said, and she managed.
Trine Rein: "the Top to stay in the block" (Mathisen / Fake / Marius Müller)
First and foremost, it is fun to listen Trine Rein sing in Norwegian, after that she the previous Saturday chose to translate a "Disaster"-the song from Norwegian to English.
There is a particular song that it must be difficult to sing. Perhaps the only thing right is to take down the tempo in this song, which basically is "silly". She offers a warm feelgood-interpretation of a landscape where both jazz, bossa nova, shows and cabaret thrive together. Also reveals she that she has a sense of humour, and the song be carried forward with the glimpse we the eye. It looks simply as though she has fun, and the timing is good all the way. Trines best entry so far.
Lars Bremnes: "Wrong number" (Mathisen)
Lars has chosen a song from the soloplata to Tom, "There is little that is" from 1980. But he has chosen the wrong song? More specific, is this the right track for Lars?
He's probably outside the comfort zone here too, but surprises with to play the saxophone in the mid-range, and are immediately baptized into "Larry Sanborn" (after saksofonstjerna first name is David).
It is amazing that it is possible to make a bad text, say, Empty yourself and laugh, but the problem lies more in the performance. The song is unnecessarily fussy in Lars’ version, and it suits him pretty bad. Saksofonen he can, however, like to take up again.
Petter "Disaster" Kristiansen: "All the fine ladies have an ugly girlfriend" (Mathisen/Fake/Müller)
pete has together with his friend, Staysmann done a little bit about this song from the album to the Tom Mathisen & Herodes falsk with the same title from 1991. the
Petter is obviously inspired by the humorduoen, and operates somewhat in the same street didn. He also has the same relation to the "musikkpolitiet", so this is a greeting to us reviewers. Thank you for the!
he Also has brought in reedists, and the song has a punch. A party atmosphere will be there also, and it is surprisingly streamlined in Katastrofes version. I imagine, however, that he could have made even more out of this.
Maria Haukaas Mittet: "Neighbor" (Eddie Rabbit / Even Stevens / David Malloy / Mathisen / Fake / Teigen)
Prima Vera on the northern! Yes, why not? This is originally a countrysang, and Maria stays a bit in the genre.
She turn loose and go really into for the task, and it is just as if the text is becoming tougher with her dialect. Also, she has an impressive insight and a excellent timing. Here comes the actor up in the Maria also.
It's been a cool song where Maria snakkesynger just as much as she sings. With reedists on the space turns it as just that. And for a finish: "The faens next door!". And it comes from Maria!
Elisabeth Andreassen: "It's a nice day" (Mathisen/Fake/Teigen)
Can a humorsang be taken down to a quiet show that is sung in full earnest? It may be functional, but it is also a bit strange.
"A text with meaning, all of a sudden", says Tom. It is in no way consistent between the text and the melody, and then it becomes something that skurrer. "A fine day to shoot himself"? At the same time, there is an interesting twist to make it so different. With only the piano and violin as accompaniment performing Bettan song about a silly line of text that "I said just start to drill, yes just drill you old Børre, for gold is high in the course of the day" would be important.
Next week is Sol Heilo hedersgjest.
