About the album
This CD documents 3 outstanding European musicians, namely Norwegian singer Karin Krog, Italian trumpeter Enrico Rava and Swiss singer Miriam Klein. Norwegian vocalist Karin Krog masters - beside her beautiful and wide range - a talent for expressionism. On two of the tunes of her contribution to the present live-recording are well suited to demonstrate this fact. Besides that, she is capable of delivering both a well-controlled vibrato as well as strong and melodious interpretations of the remaining two songs. Krog enjoys the reputation as one of the leading vocalists of Europe.
The collaboration between Italian trumpeter Enrico Rava and the Jazz live trio shows the perfect synthesis between traditional instruments and their recently often heard use in the form, representing the seventies very well. One remarks here also the reign of expressionism!
The four interpretations of Swiss vocalist Miriam Klein faintly remember some renditions of jazz vocalist Billie Holiday without depicting Klein as a true copy. She is well aware of the depth and expressive power of the tunes she is presenting and uses both a well-controlled vibrato as well as her beautiful alto timbre to their advantage. All four songs bear the trade mark of an excellent artist.
All this would not have been possible without the understanding and brilliant accompaniment of the Jazz Live Trio.
