‘Feelings’ is the latest album from young Polish jazz bass player KINGA GLYK. Ms G has always been an honest musician… “I can’t sing that well, that’s why I play bass. The bass guitar gives me an unusually powerful voice and its sounds have become my actual language”.
That language is powerful throughout the 12 tracker that is ‘Feelings’ … plenty of bass heavy funk grooves and jazzy workouts with the most intriguing being the brassy, soulful ‘Joy Joy’ with Brett Williams augmenting Glyk’s usual sideman … Pawel Tomaszewski (keys) and Calvin Rodgers (drums). For a bass-led LP, ‘Ballada’ is particularly sweet and tender while the Bobby Sparks’ assisted ‘Classic’ harks back to the great days of soul jazz.
KINGA GLYK; ‘Feelings’ is released on November 1 on Warner Music.
