Not My Moon (Music Thoughts: Beyond The Moon, Kristin Korb)

kristinkorb_beyondthemoon_dbIs it a good or bad sign that I didn’t recognize that ‘Beyond The Moon’ is a Johnny mercer tribute album? I don’t know, but what I do know is that I have tried – in vain – to like this new album by Kristin Korb. I have been listening to it for a couple of months now on my iPod,  and I let tracks play randomly on shuffle with other albums, but nothing has stuck to me. For some reason, my iPod keeps on choosing ‘Jeepers Creepers,’ and while I do appreciate its jazzy arrangement, I find my mind wandering a couple of seconds into it. As a matter of fact, there’s just something in me that got bored with the record, and I know it’s not the musicians’ fault (all stellar)  I just can’t appreciate the meandering jazz arrangement of ‘Midnight Sun’ for the original ‘Beyond The Moon’ with its discordant, non-melodic stance. I have a lot of respect for Ms. Korb, I just don’t connect with her music.
