Album Description

Known for her hard swinging bass lines and sparkling vocals, Kristin Korb departs from her Great American Songbook tradition and dives deep into the exploration of pop tunes that burst with Korb’s trademark exuberance and inspired arrangements. Korb’s bass grooves swing deep and hard with her long-time co-conspirators Magnus Hjorth on piano and Snorre Kirk on drums. Her intimate and playful vocal lines soften the harder edges of the original versions while maintaining the all the joy. Joining Korb’s trio are Swedish saxophone titan Karl-Martin Almqvist, Danish trombone master Steen Nikolaj Hansen, and Denmark’s young lion on harmonica Mathias Heise. The touches of percussion by Tira Skamby and Aaron Serfaty give an extra sparkle to the project. What If? Is the first half of a double release reflecting two sides of Korb’s artistry. The second half, Why Not? will be digitally released in May 2021. (The physical double disc project will be released simultaneously in May 2021.) It celebrates Korb’s friendships in the jazz family, a few road stories, and lessons learned along the way.
