It’s more than 25 years since Swedish singer Maritza Horn released a new recording.
The long wait is finally over! On the 27th of August ”Just Like Greta”, a new full length album with nine well chosen songs culled from the magnificent Van Morrison’s treasure trove, was released. The album is produced by Maritza Horn together with guitarist and arranger Ola Gustafsson. Among the musicians are bass player Jerker Odelholm, drummer Christer Jansson Fluur, violinist Santiago Jimenez, pianist Janne Radesjö and her son Natanael Horn Weitzberg.
Maritza’s first three albums were in all in the English language. After ten years her first album in her native tongue, the Gold selling ”Jämmer och elände” was released to public and critical acclaim. It was followed by three more Swedish albums. The last of these ”Morgon i Georgia” a thematic album about author Fredrika Bremer’s life, rendered her a Swedish Grammy. Maritza Horn has participated on innumerous TV and radio shows, has toured with Abba in Europe and Australia, has recorded in the USA with legendary producer Jerry Ragavoy, the man behind tunes like ”Time Is On My side” Rolling Stones and Janis Joplin’s hit ”Piece of My Heart”.
