Albums of the Year 2016 Andy Robson, Jazzwise 

4 stars 'Barb Jungr is the alchemist among jazz singers. She takes dubious songs, and turns them into gold. And she takes songs we already knew were gold, and makes them interestingly different… She is truly a marvel, who should not be missed.' The Telegraph

4 stars 'Vocalist Barb Jungr pulls off quite a coup on her ninth album for Linn...this fine album possesses a special poignancy.' Jazzwise

'The Dylan and Cohen covers are, as one has come to expect from Jungr, quite superb...But perhaps the biggest surprise on Shelter is the quality of Jungr's own compositions.' Kind of Jazz 

Barb Jungr's profoundly original arrangements of contemporary American songs have seen her recognised as one of the most important interpreters of the works of Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen. This brand new album includes Dylan, Cohen and a host of songs by other acclaimed contemporary writers. Shelter From The Storm also includes three brand new songs written by Jungr and pianist Laurence Hobgood, well-known for his GRAMMY Award-winning hard-core jazz and partnership with Kurt Elling.

Of his first major collaboration since Elling, Hobgood stated 'I'm not just thrilled to be collaborating with Barb Jungr; I'm energized, inspired, and downright giddy at having matched with a "musician's singer" - a superb vocalist whose musical intelligence is its own formidable, evolved force with which to reckon.' Together Jungr and Hobgood are an exciting tour de force, skilfully supported by Michael Olatuja (bass) and Wilson Torres (percussion).

These 'songs of hope' are a much-needed antidote to today's 'troubled times'; an uplifting message superbly realised by a superb singer.

Boycotting Trends
'Jungr brilliantly hot-wires us to the present moment by turning the clock back, finding relevant content in older material...'

O's Place Jazz Newsletter
'The musicians help Barb deliver heartfelt expressions of classic covers as well as her original tunes. We enjoyed "Stars Lazy But Shining" and "Hymn To Nina" (for Nina Simone) most in a set that reflects on societal issues, hope and inspiration.'
more >>

Jazz Times
'What matters is the exquisite quality of the work – their union of Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower" with Gabriel's "In Your Eyes" is a particular standout – its immense value heightened by three superb Jungr-Hobgood originals, including an astute nod to Nina Simone.'

AXS
'Her voice rises up from the depths of despair to indeed provide hope for troubled times...Jungr, a critically acclaimed, fearless powerhouse of a vocalist, wears her heart on her sleeve come what may.'

The Huffington Post
'Jungr is so supernal at what she does that she transcends any sort of easy categorizing and rises to a uniquely higher plane. Part of the explanation is her ability to delve into songs and find things in them even their manufacturers hadn't realized were there.'

Jazz Views
'The overall standard set on this album, is extremely high but as with all Barb Jungr recordings, there is always one track that takes the bar even higher. On this occasion it is the Joni Mitchell classic rock anthem "Woodstock" where the restrained vocal delivery is no less than spine chilling with piano, bass and drums fully catching the mood and reflection of the era.'

BBC Radio Scotland ‘The Jazz House’
