Barb Jungr "Walking In The Sun" SACD
Walking In The Sun heralded a new direction for one of Europe's finest voices.
‘Her voice is truly a thing of wonder, and it nicely ranges over Dylan's Trouble in Mind, the traditional Run On and more.' Daily Express
‘Her most compellingly sung and intensely vital collection to date.' Jazzwise
‘If Randy Newman is the thinking person's pop singer, Barb Jungr occupies a similar niche in this country.' The Sunday Times
‘Jungr has the creativity, skill, and shrewd sense which put her into that select category of artists whom we're eager to hear cover songs.' High Fidelity Review
Drawing on influences from a wide range of musical traditions, including gospel and the blues, the album is Jungr's most accessible release to date. Jungr brings her decidedly creative and imaginative style to Carole King's Way Over Yonder, Jimmy Cliff's Many Rivers to Cross and, of course, her trademark re-workings of Dylan songs: Trouble in Mind and Blind Willie McTell. There is also a new song by Eric Bibb, Heading Home, which sees the legendary guitarist make a guest appearance on the track.
