The new project is based on Sigvart Dagsland's rich musical catalog. Dagsland has allowed Gustavsen to choose freely among the songs and has given him the freedom to process the material. This, according to Dagsland, has been a very exciting process. "The songs get a new dimension with Tord's arrangement", he says. Tord has provided tunes both more temperamental and lyrical. Dagsland especially accentuate Gustavsen's work with the sakrale melodies, like "Då barnå forsvant" and "En stemme for de stemmeløse". The fact that the material has been given a more sacred character will fit perfectly with the concert as it is set up in Molde Cathedral. There is every reason to believe that this will be a special experience both for MoldeJazz-debutant Dagsland and the large audience that this concert will definitely pull.
