British jazz singer BARB JUNGR releases her brand new long player on 19th February. ‘Shelter From The Storm’ is a ten tracker on which Ms Jungr’s collaborated with American jazz pianist LAURENCE HOBGOOD.
Released on Linn records, the set was recorded at New York’s Sear Sound Studio with engineer Calum Malcolm helping Laurence and Barb produce.
The album offers three original songs alongside covers of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s ‘Bali Hai’, Leonard Cohen’s ‘Sisters Of Mercy’, Sondheim’s ‘Something’s Coming’, Joni Mitchell’s ‘Woodstock’, Bowie’s ‘Life On Mars’ and two from Bob Dylan – ‘All Along The Watchtower’ and ‘Shelter From The Strom’ – from which the album takes its overall title. As always Ms Jungr interprets the songs in her own special way.
Barb and Laurence will be launching the album via an 11 date UK Spring tour which includes four nights at Soho’s Piazza Express. Find full details @ www.barbjungr.co.uk
