ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Heartfelt vocals, beautiful melodies, and fresh arrangements shine on this Christmas EP by Jazz vocalist Erin Krebs and her partner, guitarist Jeff Johnston.
All is Calm is comprised of two original songs and five traditional carols presented simply and beautifully. Erin's inspiration for releasing this album comes from traditions of singing and playing these carols while she was growing up. The texture could seem limited but, somehow, it does not sound that way. The duo's re-harmonizations add fullness, and Erin's addition of flute solos on three of the songs offer a different tone color. As a Jazz vocalist, Erin is accustomed to improvising on the melody; throughout the album she does just enough to make things interesting, but not so much as to take away from the already wonderful melodies.
On this album, you'll hear ballads, a Jazz waltz, Latin grooves, and even a song that switches between 5/4 and 3/4 time. In addition, the album includes a brand new original song "All Year Long". The melody for this song started as a melody Erin started to sing to her baby niece Evelyn, with lyrics inspired by the need for peace "not just here, not just now, but forevermore" during a time that, for many, feels divisive. "All is Calm" ends on a high note with a soulful version of the well-known and uplifting spiritual "Go Tell it on the Mountain".
To take traditional and well-loved carols and make them your own is no easy task, but Erin and Jeff make it happen with their sincerity, musicianship, and chemistry as a duo. After a listen, you will feel somehow lighter, with a sense of peace and calm.
