Barb Jungr - Shelter From The Storm - O's Place Jazz Newsletter
Shelter From the Storm is a collection of songs for troubled times featuring vocalist Barb Jungr. She collaborates with pianist Laurence Hobgood, Michael Olatuja on bass and percussionist Wilson Torres. The musicians help Barb deliver heartfelt expressions of classic covers as well as her original tunes. We enjoyed "Stars Lazy But Shining" and "Hymn To Nina" (for Nina Simone) most in a set that reflects on societal issues, hope and inspiration. Bob Dylan's title track is a good description of the content, a good session.
