Primary Instrument: Bass, acoustic
What's Your Story? is currently charting on JazzWeek.
”WHAT’S YOUR STORY?”, the 6th album from internationally recognized jazz artist Kristin Korb answers that very question with 12 timeless tunes that celebrate her story as a jazz vocalist and bassist. The album was released on Korb’s own label, Double K Music in the U.S. and Europe on April 2, 2013.A singing double bassist with a deep sense of swing, Korb combines the instrumental influence of Ray Brown and Charles Mingus with the vocal styling of Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald to create a sound all her own. Exhilarating to watch live, she sings and plays as effortlessly as she breathes....
Though many a fine bassist - Jay Leonhart, John Miller and Clipper Anderson among them - occasionally sings, Kristin Korb numbers among the rare few who excel at both. - Christopher Loudon - Jazz Times
This could be a candidate for vocal album of the year. But, then, there’s that bass playing. - Doug Ramsey - Rifftides Kristin Korb What's Your Story review. - Doug Ramsey - Rifftides
