Korb, Kristin: That Time of Year

Kristin Korb is a fine jazz singer/bassist with quite a nice Christmas album released in 2018 titled That Time of Year. The songs range from older classics to newer material, all impeccably played by this talented quartet which includes the aforementioned Korb (bass and vocals), Magnus Hjorth (piano), Snorre Kirk (drums) and Mathias Heise (harmonica).

Korb’s vocals are crystalline and pure and her bass playing is really quite superb. The disc begins with the sultry “Christmas Will Really Be Christmas” with tasteful piano and harmonica trading solo spots. The classic sounds in Irving Berlin’s “I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm” and Bernard and Smith’s “Winter Wonderland” should warm even the coldest of hearts. More beautifully arranged Christmas standards include lovely renditions of ”Silent Night” and ”We Three Kings”.

That Time of Year is another excellent disc for your Christmas playlist. I really enjoyed it as it made for relaxing holiday listening. And isn’t that what everyone needs over the holidays?

Released on Storyville Records.
