Versatile Vocalist

I first heard this lady on Pandora and had to track her down. This album is my favorite in that it demonstrates her straight up jazz talents. Many of her other albums are worthy reworkings of pop hits. Karin has a soft vulnerable voice, very listenable, that also swings and skats like a Harlem sister. Her choice of backup is exemplary with all the chairs filled with great performances and she allows her sidemen to fully show their stuff. On this album are super versions of Cherokee and Joy Spring, two classic jazz masterworks; she and her group nail them both with great singing ,solos and above all fresh arrangements. Closer to her other work is Robert Frost, heretofore unknown to me. The song stands by itself as a masterpiece, presenting the angst and longing of every budding artist. She's also accomplished in French and Brazilian tunes. By the way, I caught her act once and she wasn't half so impressive without her great backup. She's also easy on the eyes.
