Where You’ll Find Me is an appropriate theme song and phrase to use when talking about bassist/vocalist Kristin Korb. She has, however, stopped long enough to document her most recent musical excursions on this CD. Performing with two great jazz musicians, the incomperable Jeff Hamilton on drums and the always tasteful Mike Wofford on piano, Kristin shows off her acoustic bass playing and vocal style in a set of hard swinging, yet uniquely arranged jazz standards and original compositions.

“Among top-flight bassists who sing while they play, Korb is in an exclusive category with Jim Ferguson and Jay Leonhart. A protégé of Ray Brown, she sang but did not play on her 1996 debut CD on Telarc, Introducing Kristin Korb With the Ray Brown Trio. “With Ray Brown,” she asks, “what would any sane bassist do?” She followed up her master’s degree in bass performance from the University of California San Diego with lessons not only from Brown but also from John Clayton, Ron Carter and Rufus Reid. She polished her singing in studies with vocalist Sue Raney, the most sought-after jazz and popular singing coach in Los Angeles. Korb’s work reflects their teaching and examples—solid swing down the middle, informed note choices in time-keeping and in bass solos, clarity of intonation, flexibility of line and literate interpretation of lyrics in her singing.”
