There are few bassists who can sing and there are even fewer who can do it well.

Kristin Korb is one of those artists who make you forget that she is playing the bass when you hear her crystalline voice. Influenced by the days when music was romantic and made you want to dance, Kristin and her trio embody that spirit and bring their audiences along for the ride. Love eventually brought the American bassist and vocalist to Denmark in 2011.

In November 2016, Korb releases her eighth CD, Beyond the Moon. Inspired by the storytelling of one of America’s greatest lyricists, Johnny Mercer, Kristin includes several of his biggest hits and then takes a voyage of discovery into unpublished texts that Mercer never made into songs.

Kristin’s performances of all eleven songs thrive on elements that she and Mercer have in common; reverence for melody; phrasing and inflection influenced by the blues; understanding of the relationship of harmonies to tunes and words. In making songs of orphan texts from the Mercer archive, Kristin and Magnus Hjorth, the pianist in her trio, evoke Mercer’s powers of rhythm and rhyme. They and drummer Snorre Kirk comprise a working group in high demand in Europe, where they live, and in their US tours.
