as the world sleeps Dalia Faitelson

“A compositional concept created in the still depth of night as streets empty and dreams are born. This acoustic mix provides a powerful and introspective sound.

I had the great pleasure to use the Serbian Tajj String Quartet. Thommy composed all the string arrangements and lifted the album to a higher level.

This album is a junction in time, where Joni Mitchell encounters Tom Waits, and they conspire to create a kinky jazz salute to Marlene Dietrich.”


“As the World Sleeps”” was nominated for a Danish Jazz Award as “Best Vocal Album of the Year.”
