Karin Krog: Don't Just Sing- An Anthology 1963-1999 (CD: Light In The Attic)Karin Krog: Don't Just Sing- An Anthology 1963-1999 (CD: Light In The Attic)
The work of Karin Krog may be unfamiliar to much of the world, but in her native Norway and Scandinavia at large, she’s practically a household name. This says much about the local enthusiasm for post-bop jazz but also about the tyranny of distribution: until 1994, Krog’s albums weren’t available in the USA or UK, meaning three decades of recordings were waiting to be discovered. In theory, until now, she hasn’t had any regularly distributed albums in the US or the UK–this is certainly the first one even marketed/promoted in the States and in England.

Curated with Krog’s own input, this anthology showcases her best recordings from 1963 to 1999, including songs from 1968’s groundbreaking Joy, her 1970 Dexter Gordon collaboration Some Other Spring, her pop-jazz masterwork 1974’s We Could Be Flying, tracks from the Japanese only Different Days, Different Ways which focus on 1970-72 experimental vocal works, and previously unreleased tracks.

Karin Krog: Gershwin With Karin Krog (Vinyl LP: Odin)
A classic Karin Krog album reissued on 180g LP, remastered by Jan Erik Kongshaug in Rainbow Studio. By the time Karin Korg made 'Gershwin with Karin Krog', from late 1973 to mid-1974, she had been making records for ten years. Indeed, her very first session, from November 1963 included two of the musicians to be heard here; pianist Egil Kapstad and drummer Jon Christensen. We also hear tenor saxophonist Bjarne Nerem and ECM bass legend Arild Andersen. This album marks the earliest occasion on which Karin set out to make a complete album devoted to a single composer. Includes liner notes by Alyn Shipton. (Proper Music)

Karin Krog: You Must Believe In Spring (Vinyl LP: Odin)Karin Krog: You Must Believe In Spring (Vinyl LP: Odin)
An underrated gem from Karin Krog's discography, remastered on 180g LP by Jan Erik Kongshaug in Rainbow Studio. These six excellent settings of songs by Michel Legrand were recorded by Karin Korg in May 1974.

The arrangements were the work of trumpeter Palle Mikkelborg. The immediate sense one gets from the album is of both singer and arranger trying out ways in which to escape from the established conventions of jazz vocal albums, and simultaneously aiming to incorporate some of the filmic qualities in Legrand's writing. Includes liner notes by Alyn Shipton. (Proper Music)

Although vocalist Karin Krog and saxophonist John Surman have been appearing in concert as a duo for over three decades, all of the recordings available until now have been studio based. Finally, with this album, comes the opportunity to hear a recording of the duo performing live. With the assistance of Ben Surman's electronic wizardry the duo are able to re-invent a few old favourites from their repertoire and spontaneously explore some completely new territory in front of an enthusiastic audience.

Silje Nergaard: Chain Of Days (CD: Okeh)
Chain Of Days is a “chain” of 11 songs with no genre-boundaries, carefully put together with a focus on melody. There is a touch of folk, pop, jazz, Norwegian folk-music, country and blues, but all of the songs have Silje Nergaard’s recognizable and distinct signature.

Surprisingly enough, this is the first time as a vocalist that Silje Nergaard has experienced a feeling of total release and complete freedom while recording in the studio, on this, now her 15th album! This time Silje invited the band to record together with her live, all standing in the same room:

“They are extremely talented musicians, all with a strong and unique sound. It felt very different when I could feel them and see them when we played together, just the way we do on stage. It felt natural and authentic. It was a fantastic week.” (Okeh Records)

Rigmor Gustafsson: Close To You (CD: ACT)Rigmor Gustafsson: Close To You (CD: ACT)
One of Sweden's most celebrated singers, Rigmor Gustafsson has built up a considerable reputation in her home country and elsewhere in Europe for sensitive renditions of jazz standards as well as originals. On this, her latest release for the ACT label, she is teamed up with innovative Blue Note artist Jacky Terrasson for a set of songs which were made famous by the great Dionne Warwick. Her readings of these famous songs stand out from the pack for both their simplicity and directness, going straight to the heart of the emotions behind them. The backing from Terrasson's trio is equally refined, moving from restrained ballad playing to explosive swing, even moving over to Fender Rhodes electric piano for a few tracks. (Proper Music)

Viktoria Tolstoy: Meet Me At The Movies (CD: ACT)Viktoria Tolstoy: Meet Me At The Movies (CD: ACT)
Three years on from recording 'A Moment Of Now', which placed the singer in the intimate setting of a duo with pianist Jacob Karlzon, Swedish chanteuse Viktoria Tolstoy now directs her attention to music from films. 'Meet Me At The Movies' is an emotional journey through the history of film and of film music. The singer's route takes her from Herman Hupfeld's 'As Time Goes By' from the Michael Curtiz film 'Casablanca' through to Björk's 'New World' from Lars von Trier's 'Dancer In The Dark.' It goes from 'Smile' from Charlie Chaplin's 'Modern Times' to Seal's 'Kiss From A Rose' from 'Batman Forever'. And it also takes in Michael & Lesley Gore's 'Out Here On My Own' from 'Fame' and Sarah McLachlan's 'Angel' from 'City of Angels' starring Nicolas Cage.

This is a selection of songs from films born of a passion. I know every one of the films that these songs come from,' says Tolstoy. 'And just about all of them are among my favourite films. Both 'Bagdad Café' and 'Dancer In The Dark' are at the top of my list - in each case I have a special connection to the music.' That closeness can be heard. She gives each song a personal resonance and its own character. When Viktoria Tolstoy invites you to meet her at the movies, the emotions will run high.... and it will be a pleasure and a privilege to accept. (Harmonia Mundi)
