Karin Krog - Don't Just Sing : An Anthology 1963-1999 (2LP)
This product is currently sold out.
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 outisde her homeland, meaning three decades of recordings were waiting to be discovered. In theory, until now, she hasn’t had any regularly distributed albums and this is certainly the first one even marketed/promoted internationally. With this anthology of her best recordings from 1963 to 1999–curated with Krog’s own input–we hope to set the record straight.
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.
