It's a version of 'You Go To My Head,' with some easy funk piano flourishes. Koller's soulful voice reaches for new ways to update tradition. Sometimes if it's not broken....
The song 'You Go To My Head' is the opener for the album 'Perception'. Written by J.F. Coots & H. Gillespie, the unique arrangement by Kristina Koller mixes jazz with R&B and funk sounds and sets the tone for the rest of the album. In 'Perception' the singer offers a 12-tune recital containing four originals songs and eight re-imagined gems on the eternal subject of love & relationships. Teaming an array of classics with her own confessional and emotionally honest lyrics, 'Perception' packs a hefty emotional punch. With the help of her talented and tightly-knit trio, which features Fima Chupakhin on piano, Chris Talio on bass and Joe Spinelli on drums, Koller presents a snapshot of the self-development she has experienced as a singer, songwriter and arranger. For Koller, adding to the legacy of jazz is much more important than recreating the performances of others. She actively points her creative compass in the right direction, by reinventing classics, while still retaining their essence.
