Northern Crossings Northern Crossings CD (2001)
CD $19.55 Buy It  Details
Olga Konkova albums Although Northern Crossings, Olga Konkova's second Candid date as a leader, was recorded in New Jersey in 1997, all of the players were born in Europe. This CD finds the Russian pianist (who now lives in Oslo, Norway) forming a quartet with two Norwegians (soprano and tenor saxman Ole Mathisen and his brother, bassist Per Mathisen) and Swiss drummer Jojo Mayer. And Candid, the label they recorded Northern Crossings for, is British. While Konkova's first Candid release, Her Point of View, contained a lot of standards, Northern Crossings focuses on songs that were written by Per Mathisen (who is Konkova's husband and the session's co-leader) and Konkova herself. This is a very cerebral post-bop album; Konkova and the Mathisen brothers aren't afraid to be abstract and complex, and they are as uncompromising on the more aggressive material ("On the Move," "Independent Blues") as they are on something as relaxed as the pensive "Olga's Dream." But while Northern Crossings doesn't go out of its way to be accessible, the CD is enjoyable if you can accept Konkova on her own terms. Like a lot of the more intellectual post-bop, Northern Crossings isn't easy to absorb on the first listen. But the more you play it, the more you find to admire. ~ Alex Henderson This CD is the product of many years hard work by pianist Olga Konkova and bassist Per Mathisen. For some time, they wanted to play with Ole, Per's brother, who lives in New York but due to Olga and Per living ...
Her Point of View Her Point of View CD (2001)
CD $19.09 Buy It  Details
Olga Konkova music CDs If you read the list of songs on Her Point of View without actually hearing the album, your reaction might be one of apprehension. Recorded in 1997 and 1998, this CD finds Olga Konkova tackling "Summertime," "Sophisticated Lady," and other warhorses that jazz artists have beaten to death over the years. You might be thinking, "Oh no, not those songs again." But here's the thing: Konkova doesn't play these standards in a conventional, predictable ...

Gershwin: Porgy & Bess Gershwin: Porgy & Bess CD (2001)
CD Check Availability  Details
With this CD, the Norwegian singer/guitarist adds to the half-century-long list of albums that mine the treasure chest of a single work, George Gershwin's opera Porgy and Bess. Is there any other single opera that has been subjected to so many different recorded treatments and homages? Only Carmen -- the work that ironically inspired Gershwin the most -- comes close. Most of the time, this is a fairly conventional jazz treatment of the score's ...
