Smalls Showcase: The Kristina Koller Quintet

It is always a joy to witness an evolving musical talent. Jazz artist Kristina Koller has developed quickly into a highly individual vocalist. Her sound is both timeless and contemporary. As a composer, Kristina melds diverse genres of music into her songs. While she loves singing standards and straight ahead jazz, Kristina also enjoys arranging tunes in unusual ways, knowing that adding to the legacy of jazz is much more important than merely recreating the performances of others. She reinvents classic material while retaining their essence, putting her own winning personality and fresh ideas into the lyrics that she interprets.
Kristina Koller is a very original contemporary jazz vocalist, one that anyone interested in jazz, or for that matter progressive music, needs to hear. Her music connects with new audiences outside of the jazz music circle, melding jazz, funk, R&B & alternative sounds into her arrangements and compositions.
