Thanks to the European success of “Normal”, Karo Glazer had a chance to develop her talent on the biggest jazz scenes of Europe and that created the basics for the “Crossings Project”.
From the beginning she was cordially supported by Lars Danielsson and Krzysztof Ścierański. The later friendship with Klaus Doldinger and Mike Stern turned out to be
the most influential and let Karo create an album on a world scale.
Karo decided to find a new, unique sound that would define her personal idea of contemporary jazz in the company of her nearest – friends and in the same time fantastic musicians. “Crossings Project” stands for mutual inspiring and constant dialogue where every musician is an essential part and an individual voice. Crossings is a constant process, a common search for new values.
As the artist herself says, each of the invited guests was for her at some stage of her life a source of great inspiration and they influenced the way she composes, what she sings and who she is as a person.
In the contemporary music, what is most engrossing is created on the borders and that is why “Crossings Project” is so much colourful and multifaceted and talks to the listeners in so many, different ways.
The idea of Crossings appeals to the most basic assumptions of jazz – the music of freedom which by definition knows no bounds and whose very essence is to find an individual
language used by an artist to express their emotions.
