My Kind Of World

Wonderful 1960s Big Band recording full of sweet and catchy female vocal Bossa Nova, Swing and Jazz tunes. Gitte Hænning-Johansson a singer and actress from Denmark and since the earlier 1960s ever a household name also in the German Schlager-Game. But surprisingly she recorded this album with The Kenny Clarke-Francy Boland Big Band where she sung only Jazz and only in English. It was her long time dream to produce a Jazz album and with MY KIND OF WORLD she demonstrate that she is more than a Schlager-Star, a great Jazz vocalist. The fantastic vocals by Gitte are backed by some of the most talented European Jazz musicians like Åke Persson, Benny Bailey, Dusko Goykovich, Jimmy Woode, Sahib Shihab, Sal Nistico … and many more.

I remember the times when some crazy sellers was asking 400,- DM on record fairs for the first press from 1969 on HÖR ZU records with the red pullover cover photography. That’s long ago but also today I must say that I like this later MFP issue with this lovely RECORD-HEAD cover artwork more.
