Inspired by singers and songwriters like K.D. Lang, Joni Mitchell and Lizz Wright, with the blend of pop, country and acoustic jazz, drummer Roger Johansen (35) surprises by delivering his strongest statement so far in his career. World of Emily is a vocal album which shows a drummer and songwriter on top of his game. In his own special way, Roger has set the poetic world of Emily Dickinson to life and into contemporary jazz with a touch of relaxed pop-ish coolness. 11 unique songs, brilliantly performed by Roger´s own group, whisch includes the talents of Norwegian guitar legend Jon Eberson, with Marit Sandvik/vocals, Atle Nymo/tenorsax, Helge Lien/piano and Sondre Meisfjord ad the bass.
