About the album
WHEN WE WERE GENTLE is a collection of ten songs, some written by Kira and some in collaboration with her husband, bassist Nicolai Munch-Hansen; a handful of musical poems about life and love. The songs were recorded with musicians whom Kira has worked with on her most recent releases, musicians with the same borderless approach to genres as Kira herself. The dividing lines between jazz, rock and pop fade away in image-evoking music where Oliver Hoiness’ guitar and Simon Toldam’s keyboards are broad but precise brush stro- kes on a musical canvas. Nicolai Munch-Hansen’s upright bass is a deep, rich foundation in interplay with R.J. Miller’s and John Parish’s delicately percussive drumming.
