Karin KrogCloud Line Blue ... LP
Polydor (Norway), Mid 70s. Near Mint- ... $49.99
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 you'd find on classic MPS recordings. This session, recorded under the guidance of John Surman, has Krog's icy Scandinavian voice in moody settings of moog and electric keyboards, plus some spacey soprano work by Surman. The album's filled with excellent spacey soundscapes that have Surman soloing nicely on reeds, and which have Krog singing in a style that will bring to mind the radiator song from Eraserhead. Titles include "New Spring", "Alone Song", "Edge Piece", "Empty Streets", "Eyeless In Movement", and "Cloud Line Blue". LP, Vinyl record album
(Original Norwegian pressing. Includes the original Polydor inner sleeve and the insert from the Japanese pressing. Cover has light wear and a small mark from sticker removal.)

Karin KrogDon't Just Sing – An Anthology 1963 to 1999 ... CD
Light In The Attic, 1960s/1970s/1980s/1990s. New Copy ... $5.99 14.98
Wonderful work from one of our favorite singers of all time – an artist with roots in jazz, but one who quickly stepped out into something else entirely – as you'll hear on this beautiful selection of tunes! Karin Krog's been a key figure in the Norwegian jazz scene since the start of the 60s, but she's hardly ever gotten any global exposure (although we've always tried to stock her music whenever we can) – and she's got a sound that's really mindbending, and far-reaching – every bit as powerful and soulful as some of the new generation of jazz singers who worked in the US scene of the 70s – like Dee Dee Bridgewater, Flora Purim, or Ursula Dudziak – but with a sound that's maybe even more revolutionary than all three put together! Karin uses her voice like an instrument, but still pays very careful attention to the words as well – which is crucial, since her lyrics are often her own, or penned by hip collaborators like Steve Kuhn and John Surman. The result is something that's hardly jazz at all – but instead this really cosmic, forward-thinking approach that may well be the 70s equivalent in vocals to Herbie Hancock's work on the keys. No surprise, Karin turns in a wonderful version of "Maiden Voyage" here – and shines on other tunes that include "A Love Supreme", "Just holding On", "Don't Just Sing", "Glissando", "Break Of Day In Molde", "We Could Be Flying", "Raindrops Raindrops", "Lazy Afternoon", and "All I Want". CD also features two never-issued songs – "Images In Glass" and "Tystnaden" – and musicians include John Surman and Dexter Gordon too! CD

Karin KrogWhere You At? ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 2002. New Copy ... $16.99
A beautiful return to form for singer Karin Krog – one of our favorite jazz vocalists ever! The album's got Karin singing to arrangements and backing from pianist Steve Kuhn, a wonderful talent for a set like this, and a songwriter who's contributed some really wonderful tunes to the European jazz vocal canon. Kuhn plays acoustic piano in the trio that accompanies Krog, and the album's got the spare, open, and ethereal feel of some of her best 70s work. The whole thing's really laidback, mellow, and done with that slightly icy touch that we love in Krog's voice – and tunes include "The Meaning Of Love", "It Could Be Hip", "Speak Of Love", "Missing Calada", "Kaleidoscopic Vision", "You Say You Care", "Canto Mai", and "Saharan".

Karin Krog & Dexter GordonSome Other Spring – Blues & Ballads ... LP
Sonet (Sweden), 1970. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
The icy voice of Norwegian singer Karin Krog is a perfect match for Dexter's deep soulful saxophone, and the two of them perform wonderfully together in this rare set of tracks recorded in 1970 with Kenny Drew on piano and Niel Henning Orsted-Peterson on bass. Krog has always been tremendously respectful of the players that she records with, and unlike other jazz vocal recordings, where the soloists take back seat to the singer, her recordings have them coming out front, and really sharing the spotlight – both in solo space, and in the interplay between the singer and musicians. Tracks include "Blue Eyes", "How Insensitive", "Some Other Spring", "Blue Monk", and her "Tribute To Jimmy Scott". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Karin Krog & Archie SheppHi-Fly (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Muzak (Japan), 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A landmark meeting from one of the two greatest talents in jazz on the 70s European scene – vocalist Karin Krog and saxophonist Archie Shepp – both coming together in an extremely evocative session! The work has a very moody feel – as Krog's singing in a spacious tone that allows for plenty of tenor work by Shepp – done in a mode that colors in the spaces between the words, and made all that much better by support from his regular group members Charles Greenlee and Beaver Harris. Shepp was hitting a more traditional tone at this point in his career – but as with his other recordings of the same time, there's still a strongly modernist undercurrent that shines through nicely. Combined with Krog's vocals, the result is a beautiful approach that really opens up jazz standards like "Soul Eyes", "Solitude", and "Hi Fly" – and which is matched perfectly for Shepp's "Steam" and Carla Bley's "Sing Me Softly Of the Blues".

✨✧ Bill Evans, Karin Krog, Archie Shepp, Bobby HutcheLive At The Festival ... CD
Enja/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A very interesting batch of tracks – one tune apiece by each of the artists named in the title, recorded between the years 1970 and 1973 at the Festival Ljublijana, in Yugoslavia. Bill Evans performs a long, and straight reading of Miles Davis' "Nardis" with a trio that includes Eddie Gomez on bass and Tony Oxley on drums; Karin Krog sings a spare version of "Round Midnight", with only the bass of Arild Andersen for accompaniment; and Archie Shepp blows freely on a version of Grachan Moncur III's "Sonny's Back", in a group with Dave Burrell, Don Garrett, and Muhammad Ali. Perhaps the most striking track, though, is "The Creators" by Bobby Hutcherson – played with his group that included Harold Land and Hal Galper, and performed in an 18 minute reading that builds beautifully, into the dancing soul jazz sound that was Hutcherson's best contribution to jazz at the time!

✨✧ Ann BurtonAnn Burton Sings For Lovers & Other Strangers ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1971. Used ... $24.99
One of the coolest, moodiest albums ever recorded by Dutch singer Ann Burton – a set that features some of the more creative arrangements she ever received on record – put together by guitarist Wim Overgaauw, and featuring organ work from both Rob Madna and Rob Franken! Burton's always great, but here she hits some of the more compelling European styles that singers like Karin Krog and Monica Zetterlund were working through in the late 60s – maybe not as openly avant at times, but quite far from the usual singer-with-trio sort of records that she previously cuts. Burton's phrasing is especially great – slow, careful, and with a kind of inventiveness that reminds us of Morgana King at her hippest – and titles include "For No One", "Sweet William", "Got To Get You Into My Life", "For All We Know", "Little Man You've Had A Busy Day", and "Business Goes On As Usual".

Aura UrziceanuOver The Rainbow ... LP
Electrecord (Romania), Mid 70s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $19.99
A really cool record that's a lot hipper than its title! Forget any prejudices you might have about "Over the Rainbow" and its connotations – because Aura's a pretty great singer with a hip European approach, one that recalls mid 70s records by singers like Karin Krog or Alice Babs, a blend of big band grooving and smaller combo work with electric touches. This set features Aura singing a variety of soundtrack tunes, late 60s pop gems, and other jazzier numbers – all wrapped up nicely with a sweet and gentle groove. Titles include "The Touch", "If", "Scarborough Fair", "Once I Met A Day", "Fire In The Morning", "Danny", "Looking Through The Eyes Of Love", and "One Like You". LP, Vinyl record album
(Japanese pressing, on P-Vine!)
