A rare session by singer Karin Krog – one that also features great work by Polish alto player Zbigniew Namyslowski! The album was recorded at Poland's Jazz Jamboree in 1975 – and side one features Krog singing with backing from Namyslowski's quartet, which includes some great work on Fender Rhodes by Wojciech Karolak. The mixture of Krog's icy vocals and warm keyboards is as strong here as on her best 70s recordings – and the side features 2 original tunes, "When Fortune Smiles" and "Hello Thursday", plus versions of "Who Cares" and "How Long Has This Been Going On". Side two is great too – and features Namyslowski's group on its own, joined by a tenor player, working on a free-flowing modal number called "Der Schmaltztango", which has nice Latiny touches, and runs for over 25 minutes!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
