Known for her exuberant spirit and contagious optimism, it is only fitting that bassist and vocalist Kristin Korb has recorded a Christmas project to celebrate her 10th CD and first with Storyville Records. “I wanted to assemble a program that creates a feeling of “hygge” and joy without being overly sweet or boring. I carefully selected songs from my childhood, songs reflecting long-standing friendships, and songs that are just fun and wintery. This is a soundtrack for tree trimming, lighting candles, and hanging out with those you love.” On board for this project are Korb’s long-standing trio mates Magnus Hjorth, piano, and Snorre Kirk, drums. As a holiday bonus, the trio is joined by Mathias Heise on harmonica. The sound of Heise’s harmonica fits the voice beautifully and adds and extra sparkle to the entire project.

Morten Haxholm: Vestigium

Vestigium has a focus on swing, energy and interaction. It’s a playground where ideas are shared and processed, until they become uncompromising unique stories.

Morten Haxholm is ready to release his sixth album. An album that once again sees him joining forces with US jazz stars Jonathan Kreisberg (gui) and Ari Hoenig (tr), as he did on his first and second albums – Equilibrium and Quintessence of Dust. This time he is also joined by Frederick Menzie (sax) and Nikolaj Hess (piano).

The repertoire moves from hard-swinging power jazz, melancholic ballads and insistent oddmeter groove tracks – and two carefully chosen standards – making “Vestigium” a balanced and complete modern jazz record. Vestigium means the the spiritual remains/imprint of a person or a feeling. As when you watch a good friend leave on a train, but you have a feeling of them still being around. The song title came about because Haxholm thought the theme had a special ethereal quality. Morten Haxholm is a Danish bass player, with five albums in his own name and several tours with his own bands (and as a sideman) in Denmark (and Europe as well). He has emerged on the music scene as a composer and bass player to be reckoned with.
