Jazz has always had a certain fascination for the moon. After love, it is one of the more common topics for jazz standards, and for Nils Landgren it's no exception. For some time he has planned a ballad album as a sequel to his highly successful Sentimental Journey, which according to the newspaper Die Welt "stole the hearts of the audience." 

"The moon and the stars are just wonderful to look at — especially with someone special. The moon is closely connected with love," says Landgren, a famed trombonist and singer, showing his romantic side. "I knew that there are so many good songs about the moon to choose from." These songs include jazz standards, such as Henry Mancini's "Moon River" or Herbie Hancock's "Stars in Your Eyes", as well as folk and pop songs like Kris Kristofferson's "Please Don't Tell Me How The Story Ends" or "Moonshadow" by Cat Stevens, and he also includes a South American song by Kurt Weill called "Holofotes" alongside his own compositions. As such, The Moon, the Stars and You has grown into a concept album with a whole spectrum of different moods — meditative, longing, occasionally funky, yet continuously inspired and swinging.
