Off the Beaten Track(s)
The German Singer Nina Hagen (1955) is famous mostly for her groundbraking productions in the genre of pop music. But she also has great affinity with jazz, and this production from 2003 with the Leipzig Big Band, during which she tries her hand at some well known songs of the jazz repertoire, is an example of this.
