Known for her exuberant spirit and contagious optimism, it is only fitting that bassist and vocalist Kristin Korb has recorded a Christmas project to celebrate her 10th CD and first with Storyville Records.
 
“I wanted to assemble a program that creates a feeling of “hygge” and joy without being overly sweet or boring. I carefully selected songs from my childhood, songs reflecting long-standing friendships, and songs that are just fun and wintery. This is a soundtrack for tree trimming, lighting candles, and hanging out with those you love.”
 
On board for this project are Korb’s long-standing trio mates Magnus Hjorth, piano, and Snorre Kirk, drums. As a holiday bonus, the trio is joined by Mathias Heise on harmonica. The sound of Heise’s harmonica fits the voice beautifully and adds and extra sparkle to the entire project.
In contrast to Korb’s recent projects, she has included two instrumentals to feature Mathias on the harmonica and the band as a whole. On “We Three Kings”, the bass, harmonica, and piano all take turns at the melody on the journey. “Angels We Have Heard on High” gets a Brazilian makeover, full of festive energy.
 
Korb captures that feeling of “hygge” with enough playful twists to freshen up last year’s playlist. That Time of Year will be a welcome addition to your treasured holiday collection.
