Jessica Pilnäs is Swedish, and so, by descent, was Peggy Lee (née Norma Deloris Egstrom). This set of Peggy Lee songs is billed as a tribute, but it’s by no means an attempted soundalike. Peggy was actually very American, brought up in the swing era. She sounded gentle but tough. Jessica is altogether more – well, Swedish. Her version of Peggy’s big hit, Fever, with folky-sounding marimba in the background, is fragile and slightly ghostly, and that’s the general effect throughout. It’s refreshing to have a new perspective on these familiar, and some less-familiar, songs. That’s what gives this collection its charm. ~Dave Gelly
