Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Over the years, Björk's music has been reworked by the likes of Jason Moran, Greg Osby, Dave Douglas, Gretchen Parlato, The Bad Plus, and many more. Karl Latham has been a Björk fan for many years, and when her album Volta was released it triggered in him an urgent desire not just to cover the songs, but to create new compositions as a kind of "commentary." After much planning, Latham gathered his team and went into Barbershop Studios in Spring 2013 with sound engineer Jeremy Gillespie, where they created a truly fascinating portrait of a singer, and her music.
