“Jeanette was awarded a Swedish Grammis for Best Jazz Album of the Year for her latest release Attitude & Orbit Control, co-produced by her and drummer Magnus Öström, and with legendary Robert Wyatt appearing as a guest on five tracks. Jeanette Lindström has the ability to set the imagination of the listener in movement – with her voice, her music as well as with her words. Her sixth solo album serves as hard proof. “Attitude & Orbit Control is Jeanette Lindström’s best album so far, may as well say it right away” wrote Svenska Dagbladet, and fantastic reviews have been raining over this album.”

The song We Would was one of 13 finalists, and the only Swedish one in the Jazz category. The panel of judges consisted of music industry professionals as well as artists such as Tom Waits, McCoy Tyner, John Scofield, Loretta Lynn, Timbaland, Robert Smith (The Cure), Robbie Williams, Youssou N’Dour, Jeff Beck and others. The New York Times called ISC, “the songwriting competition to take note of.”

Attitude & Orbit Control

With the completion of the mastering sessions, the final pieces of a puzzle that has taken close to two and a half years to complete have finally slid into place; A new record label, travels to the UK, co-writing and recording with the legendary Robert Wyatt – who appears as guest on five of the album’s twelve tracks, a whole new band and a fruitful new producer collaboration with Magnus Öström (of e.s.t.) who also plays on the album. The album was recorded in the venerable Atlantis Studios in Stockholm by master sound engineer Janne Hansson. Attitude & Orbit Control was released on the 21st of October 2009 by Playground Music Scandinavia on the Diesel imprint. As on most of her records A&OC comprises mainly original material, one cover, The Flaming Lips’ song All We Have Is Now, is the only exception this time.
