Listening: Katarina’s New Album

Katarina Henryson, founding member of The Real Group, has a strong, flexible, and distinctive voice. She has performed solos ranging from jazz to pop to rock as part of the group, and worked for years as a studio singer on pop and soul recordings.

Her husband, Svante Henryson, is a world-class cellist known for playing with musicians across a wide range, from Anne Sofie Von Otter to Elvis Costello to Yngwie Malmsteen.

With busy touring schedules, it’s taken a long time for them to get an album of material together – but their brand new record, High, Low or In Between is a marvelous, intimate collection of cello/voice duets that was worth waiting for.

Their repertoire ranges from the Beatles to Mingus, from Bill Evans to Prince, along with lots of beautiful originals and several cello improvisations.

You can buy the album for only $7.50 here. It’s worth a lot more than that.
