Kristin Korb treasures the jazz tradition. She is known for her collaborations with Ray Brown, Bruce Forman, Jeff Hamilton and more who have all taken note of her incredible sense of swing. On Kristin’s 2013 release What’s Your Story?, she dug deep into her long-standing relationship with classic jazz material and those musical personalities who influenced her. Out of those relationships and experiences, a more developed and diverse musician is emerging and Finding Home.

Love brought the American bassist and singer to Denmark in 2011. Kristin Korb releases her most personal CD yet. Finding Home features Kristin’s stories of love, travel, language lessons and the peace she has found in her marriage and her adopted country. Instead of her “korbinated” arrangements of jazz standards, Kristin has made the bold leap to write all original material to fit her life experiences.

“Kristin Korb er en gave til Danmark. Den unge bassist og sanger flyttede hertil for et par år siden og har allerede markeret sig som en charmerende og ukrukket del af det danske jazzmiljø. Korbs umiddelbarhed, store glæde ved musikken og ikke mindst stensikre performance vinder hende nye venner og fans hver eneste gang hun optræder. Denne CD er et glimrende vidnesbyrd om en kunstner, der med garanti vil glæde os mange år frem. Korbs tekster er temaer hentet fra hendes eget liv. Hun fortæller om hvordan det er at flytte fra hjemlandet USA til det lille land derovre ”in Europe”. Og hun gør det så ligefremt og ærligt, at det aldrig bliver tåkrummende selvudleverende, ganske enkelt fordi hun er ærlig på den voksne måde – der er intet teenagefnidder her. At Kristin Korbs basspil samtidig er stensikkert og magtfuldt – hun har stået i lære hos bl.a. Ray Brown – gør, at vi bør fryde os over at hun har besluttet sig for at forelske sig i en dansk mand og bosætte sig her. Veludført mainstream jazz, hvor man kan fryde sig over en god, akustisk lyd hele CD’en igennem.”  JazzKlubben
