The thread which unifies all the tracks on 'Stealing Moments' is her strong, crystal clear voice, together with her temperament.

Viktoria Tolstoy's ACT debut album, 'Shining On You' from 2004, can now
be seen as a defining moment, marking the beginning of the continuing
success story of popular jazz voices from Scandinavia. The music was
written by EsbjÃ¶rn Svensson, who also formed the core band together
with Dan Berglund and Magnus ÃstrÃ¶m and was soon to become worldfamous as 'e.s.t.'. The album, produced by Nils Landgren, was also a
gathering of many members of the ACT family of artists - also in its infancy
back then - who joined the session as guests.
Exactly 20 years later, in 'Stealing Moments', Viktoria Tolstoy has once again
taken up the idea of 'the family' making music together. The compositions
are by a whole host of current ACT artists, many of whom had an involvement
in 'Shining on You'. It includes 'Hands Off', originally an instrumental
composition by the late EsbjÃ¶rn Svensson; Svensson's widow Eva has
written a very fine new lyric for it. Long-time friends and companions - Nils
Landgren, Ida Sand, Wolfgang Haffner, CÃ¦cilie Norby, Lars Danielsson,
Iiro Rantala and Jan Lundgren - have all written new music specifically with
Tolstoy and her voice in mind.
'When you sing, the sun rises,' Pat Metheny once told Viktoria Tolstoy.
The thread which unifies all the tracks on 'Stealing Moments' is her
strong, crystal clear voice, together with her temperament, in which lightness and coruscating energy always irresistibly co-exist. Listeners are
going to enjoy this music as much as she does...and she knows it. Or as
she says, subtly re-forming the words of the album title into an implicit
invitation: 'Let me steal a little bit of time to listen.'
