From. Sweden comes Sylvia Vrethammar. She is apparently a familiar figure over there, and has recorded a whole slew of albums. As I listen to her album ‘Vortex” I can tell she is one of those ‘big voices,’ and, in this album, uses that unsparingly. her ‘Round Midnight’ almost screams, which is an interesting take on that song. I wish I could say the album engaged me, but it did not. I felt like she was ‘showing off’ more than singing the songs. And I found myself wanting to skip the songs when they popped up on my Daily Playlist.
