Harstad Tidene, (6 out of 6 possible scores):

"Elvis has hardly ever been as beautiful interpreted as by Lisa Dillan/it's all about Elvis, and it's all about soft jazz. So tender, touching and beautiful that the crush is about to take a stranglehold ".

Side2.no - (6 out of 6 possible scores):

This is so great, so beautiful, so strong, so personal and so unique that one only can give in, and move into Lisa Dillans Elvis-world/ The versions of "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me" and "You'll Never Walk Alone" is nothing less than amazing – they move in and stays in the heart forever.

Oppland arbeiderblad - (6 out of 6 possible scores):

"Lisa Dillan rates high and wins/Many have tried to turn the old classics, but the vast, vast majority doesen´t reach The King even up to his heels. But Lisa Dillan makes it"

Addresseavisa - (5 out of 6 possible scores):

"Elvis is not alive, and he has not returned either. But he must simply be reincarnated in Lisa Dillan "

Dagbladet - (5 out of 6 possible scores):

"Very beautiful. Like a reqviem over Elvis”

Jazznytt (does not grade reviews)

"Elvis has left the building, but Lisa has entered the room!"

Avisa Nordland - (5 out of 6 possible scores):

"Tumultuous cheering/great experience/hushed, close and intense"

Flaming Star (Elvis Presley Fan Club/Norway):

”...one of the greatest ”Elvis experiences" I have ever had/I have never seen James Burton this playful ever/ warmly recomaneded!"


Vårt Land (does not grade reviews)

"The professor in improvisation from the Norwegian Academy of music, comes more than respectable from her Elvis-stunt. Elvis ' most gripping song, "Love Me Tender", are no less gripping and intense here. Well done! (..) Guitarplayer Asbjørn Lerheim and some of Elvis ' own musicians make tonal and rhythm track that provides the gentle, clear and expressive voice of Lisa Dillan full justice. "

Elvis i jazzinnpakning

Elvis har neppe vært tolket så vakkert som av Lisa Dillan

¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤ ¤

Det handler om Elvis, og det handler om soft jazz. Så sart, rørende og vakkert at forelskelsen er i ferd med å ta kvelertak.

    Jazzvokalist Lisa Dillan fra Bodø synger med hjertet i hånden og gir kjente og mindre kjente melodier fra Elvis Presleys repertoar nytt liv og mening. Man trenger ikke være Elvis-elsker for å nyte. Dette er kunst. Stor.

    "Love Me Tender", "Surrender", "Heartbreak Hotel", "You´ll never walk alone" og 10 andre spor. Melodier behandlet med dyp respekt og i ærbødighet. Gjenkjennelige, ja, men i en egen divisjon.

      Dillans Quite Quiet Project startet så langt tilbake som i 2003, og kun som en idé. Fire år senere fikk hun med seg gitarist Asbjørn Lerheim, og de ble en duo. På albumet er det likevel Dillans Elvis-favoritter som regjerer.

     Et stjernelag av musikere, noen av dem Elvis´mest betrodde musikere og venner gjennom hele 70-tallet (TCB-band). Samlet sett en nydelig produksjon og en unik utgivelse. Det er allikevel vokalisten som framstår som den største stjerna.

    Undertegnede har aldri hatt en eneste Elvis-plate i samlingen. Nå har jeg denne, og jeg trenger ingen andre. Elvis time is anytime.

Dear audience and friends!

I am happy to announce that we now has finished the Quite Quiet Project recording in Nashville, a fantastic trip and session, with 9 fantatsic musicians mostly from Elvis Presleys main Live and studio bands. Glen D. Hardin has written beautiful arrangemets for strings, recorded in Oslo with musicians from the Norwegian Radio Orchestra. 

We have now two upcoming release concerts, and Elvis Bass player on more than 120 of Elvis most successful hits, Norbert Putnam will be there, along with one or two more from Elvis´ inner circle.

Asbjørn and I look very forward to these to special events, and hope to share one of our most special moments as musicians with as many as possible of our friends. As drummer and co-producer Paul Leim said at the end of the recording: 

"Elvis has left the building, but he is still bringing people together" (Paul Leim)
