Karin Krog / Steve Kuhn / Steve Swallow / Jon Christensen – We Could Be Flying
Cover: M (sealed)
Space-age, fusion, and jazz-funk. Norwegian jazz singer Karin Krog, American jazz pianist and composer Steve Kuhn, American jazz bassist Steve Swallow, and Norwegian jazz percussionist Jon Christensen joined forces on July 30th and 31st, 1974 at Rosenborg Studios to record this beautiful album. Our favorite is the group's version of Kuhn's composition Meaning of Love, originally released on his self titled album in '71. On the original Kuhn handles the vocals, for this one he sat back with his fingers at the keys as Karin's voice played off a set of swinging drums and a powerful moving bass in the back. Meantime Records provided us with this reissue in 2016.
