Sunday Soundtrack: Karin Krog / Ode to Billy Joe

Today's Sunday Soundtrack is from Norwegian jazz giant Karin Krog. In 1965 she earned the Buddy Prize from the Norwegian Jazz Federation, the most prestigious honors in her genre of the time; one listen to her and you'll understand why. "Ode to Billy Joe" is off Krog's 1971 album, Some other spring, which she recorded with Dextor Gordon a famed tenor saxophonist in his own right. Some other spring was voted record of the year in Japan at the time of it's release. Krog continues to produce music to this day.
