Title - Ta’ Mig Med
Artist - Jesper Sivebæk

On Ta’ Mig Med (Take Me Along), guitarist Jesper Sivebæk plays the music of rock musician Kim Larsen on classical guitar.

Kim Larsen – the much-loved Danish rock musician and multi-artist – captured – in music and words – the Danish soul. With 500 recorded songs and 40 albums he was known by Danes of all ages.

Jesper Sivebæk, guitarist, and head of guitar department at The Royal Academy of Music in Copenhagen, had two heroes in his youth: Andrés Segovia and Kim Larsen – and they have followed him ever since.

For more than 10 years Jesper Sivebæk has worked on the pieces on this album.

With his vast experience he uses the possibilities of the guitar to the utmost and follows the classical tradition of making instrumental versions of folk songs – like in Miguel Llobet’s arrangements of Catalan folksongs, in Benjamin Britten’s English and Chinese folksongs arrangements, and in Bela Bartok’s Hungarian folk songs.

Sivebæk is true both to the beauty and the simplicity of Kim Larsen’s songs, and to his instrument – the classical Spanish guitar.

In these arrangements, classical guitar players around the globe now have 12 new pieces to discover and put on their concert programs.

1. Kvinde min (Lady oh lady)
2. Hvis din far gi’r dig lov - (If your dad says okay)
3. Joanna - (Joanna)
4. Masser af success - (Lot’s of success)
5. Der er en sang - (There is a song)
6. Susan Himmelbla - (Susan Himmelbla)
7. Den lige vej - (The narrow road)
8. Om lidt - (In a moment)
9. Flyvere i natten - (Planes in the night)
10. Himlen - (Heaven)
11. Kom igen - (Come again)
12. Som et strejf af en drabe - (Like a touch of a raindrop)

This music for summer evenings and Sunday afternoons opens on the translucent Kvinde min and the gently playful duo of Hvis din far gi’r dig lov and Joanna and backs those with the slightly sterner orchestrations of Masser af success, the beautifully crafted Der er en sang and then comes the organic musings of Susan Himmelbla.

Next up is the ornate gossamer of both Den lige vej and the delightful Om lidt and backs those up seamlessly with the free flowing majesties of Flyvere i natten, the album rounding out on the effervescent Himlen, the structured elegance of Kom igen, closing on the embroidered melodies of Som et strejf af en drabe.
