From ELLE UK feb 2004 "Live at Berns" "The only word that adequately describes the Berns Hotel is sensuel (like the best boutique hotels, you can buy a CD of chill-out tunes recorded there live). What more do you want?" From: BERNS TALK www.berns.se Take the music home with you Great music has always been a part of Berns, and now some of the artists that have performed here have come together once again in the studio. The tuneful results can be heard on the CD, "Live at Berns II" The idea behind the CD was to showcase the many songs and musicians that have made their debut at Berns. Singer Alexandra Engström Johansson was one of those. Alexandra also contributes the CD's only cover song. Irving Berlin's Putting On The Ritz. She performed that rendition at Berns' 140th anniversary party as a tribute to Ella Fitzgerald, who played at Berns in 1969. The rest of the CD consists of original material that was performed for the first time an Berns' stage. Laid back in the lounge Singer/guitarist, Anders Johansson, is responsible for assembling the music for the recording. "Songs like "Lay myself down", "Perfect day" and "Not gonna happen at all" will remind listeners of that casual, relaxed, laid-back vibes that always seem to emanate from the Restaurant and Cocktail bar", says Anders. He has written the music and lyrics and also did the arrangements for "Live at Berns II".
