"Femkant," Norwegian mixed-voice septet (four women, three men) Pust's debut album, was released in September, 2007, and it immediately attracted a lot of positive attention. The Norwegian press hailed it as a "vocal sensation," and called it "vocal charm and voiceplay from another world." The album was nominated for a 2007 Norwegian Grammy Award, and it was also nominated for a CARA Award for best 2007 a cappella jazz album. These 14 a cappella songs include some excellent covers, a delicate "Time After Time," a whimsical "I Won't Grow Up" from Disney's "Peter Pan," a soaring "Innocent," a playful, jazzy "Dat Dere," a poignant, bluesy "Moon Over Bourbon Street" and a powerful, bluenote "Take a Look in the Mirror." All other songs are in Norwegian, such as the heartbreaking "Vaggviselat," haunting "Turlutte 33," playful "Femkantgeneralen" and teasing, scattish "Helene Harefroken." All arrangements are written by or for the group. A very impressive debut, "Femkant" is a breath of fresh jazzy air from Norway!
