Gitte Hænning ‎– Gitte & The Band ‎– My Kind Of World (1969)


HÖR ZU ‎– Columbia ‎– SHZE 280

Original first pressing from 1969 on HÖR ZU Records with the iconic red pullover cover photo. Used, but still in EXCELLENT condition. Amazing condition for an album from 1969, the surface of the vinyl has some minimal marks, micro scratches, and signs of wear. But plays well, really EXCELLENT sound! Just between the tunes, you can hear the vintage vinyl noises. The cover looks great and contains an original HÖRZU inner sleeve. The cover image is generic and has nothing to do with the actual offering.

Gitte Hænning ‎– Gitte & The Band
My Kind Of World

HÖR ZU ‎– Columbia ‎– SHZE 280

Wonderful big band recording from the late 1960s full of bossa nova, swing and jazz melodies carried by the sweet vocals of singer Gitte Hænning-Johansson. Originally from Denmark and has also been a household name in the German beat music scene since the early 1960s. Surprisingly, she recorded this album with the Kenny Clarke-Francy Boland Big Band. It was her long dream to produce a jazz album and with MY KIND OF WORLD she proves that she is more than just a pop star, a great jazz singer. Gitte’s fantastic vocals are supported by some of the most talented European jazz musicians such as Åke Persson, Benny Bailey, Dusko Goykovich, Jimmy Woode, Sahib Shihab and Sal Nistico.
