Sylvia Vrethammar "Stardust & Sunshine" 1975

Sweden had a bunch of really great female singers in the jazz/soul/bossa genre in the 70s - Lill Lindfors, Monica Zetterlund, Alice Babs, Nannie Porres, Sylvia Vrethammar and some others, Sylvia is  arguably the swedish bossa princess since the late sixties. This LP, Stardust & Sunshine from 1975 really shows Syvia's capacity. She do splendid versions of some jazz standards (Sentimental Journey and My Melancholy Baby), groovy and funky versions of pop tunes (Harper Valley PTA and Mrs. Robinson), she also do a great version of Stevie Wonder's You're The Sunshine Of My Life. Sylvia is still performing and are groovy as usual.
