Back in 2003, the Swedish singer Rigmor Gustafsson (pictured) impressed with her deft ability to subvert dinner-jazz cosiness with an understated power and flexibility on I Will Wait for You, but this strong programme is as much a showcase for the rhythmically stunning radio.string.quartet.vienna, which came to prominence doing John McLaughlin covers. The tracklist of swing and pop classics does imply the dinner-jazz factor, but Gustafsson and the band soon sweep that anxiety aside. The opening Still Crazy After All These Years sounds at first as if it's heading for coyness, but it builds from a (slightly overplayed) whimsy to a ferocious intensity over the boiling counterpoint of the strings. Makin' Whoopee, which the singer delivers with a breathless insistence, opens over a choppy strummed-viola pulse and Asja Valcic's typically irresistible cello vamp. The chomping Goodbye for Now suggests a more muscular Madeleine Peyroux; a slow account of I Just Don't Know What to Do With Myself could hardly be more different from Dusty Springfield's; Close to You is semi-spoken in a way that draws the blandness from it; and The Dry Cleaner from Des Moines is a thrilling cacophony of slewing high violin figures over tumultuous cello. The Swedish traditional Ack Värmland du Sköna, delivered solemnly at first, rises to a swooping lost-soul wail over the strings by the close.
