Great work from the trio of singer Francoise-Franca Cuomo – a singer with a great blend of experimental modes and European inflections – easily one of the freshest jazz vocalists we've heard in years! The instrumentation here is very spare – just bass and piano – both played with evocative shifts in tone and timing, to match Cuomo's inventive style of singing – a blend that, all together, reminds us somewhat of the more experimental spare Sheila Jordan sessions from years back – although there's also some spoken passages here in French, which definitely give the record a different feeling, and an influence from blues that's bubbling underneath. Music includes a fair bit of songs from rootsy sources, turned towards more offbeat phrasing – and titles include "Alabama Blues", "Le Blues", "Viens Baby", "No Images", "Dealer/Harlem", "Speech", "Vietnam Blues", and "Black Brown & White".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Cloud Line Blue
Meantime (Norway), 1978. New Copy
Incredible work from Scandinavian singer Karin Krog! Although Krog began her career as a straight jazz vocalist, she cut a number of records in the 70's that had her pushing into a cool territory that was a lot more progressive, and which had some great Euro-fusion touches – like the sorts ...
