Legardh is signed to the legendary jazz label, Storyville Records. In 2011 her CD‘Land & Sky was nominated ‘Jazz album of the year’ at the
Danish Music Awards and the Icelandic Music Awards.

In 2013 Jacob Christoffersen received the Special Ben Webster Honorary Prize in recognition for his outstanding achievements on the Danish jazz scene. His most recent album won ‘Album of the Year 2017’ in the Danish magazine Jazz Special.

‘[A] rhythmically astute Danish jazz singer.’ **** (Jazzwise)

‘Christoffersen’s playing is virtuosic, but at the same time completely natural and there is an immediate
clarity about his melodic lines. He simply makes the piano sing!’ (All about Jazz)

‘Love Still Wears a Smile – Legardh’ s fourth album – is a focused, complete and honest album consisting of a selection of rare ballads, that unfolds just beautifully…’ **** (GAFFA)
