Susan Wong - Just A Little Bossa Nova CD Review

This is definitely an album you wanna listen to relax or when ur at a bar or cafe or at the beach. Susan Wong covers 13 songs and turned them into jazz tracks. The song selection is very good, cos she sings all the songs that are famous a few decades ago which still sound nice (evergreen songs). However, not all the songs are presented very well but overall the CD is definitely a must buy for Jazz fan, she has a very pleasant voice and the music arrangements are perfect though some covers are not as nice as the original ones, for example Beatles' And I Love her wasn't played very well, it sounds ok but a little weird. However, most of the songs are sang very well and the best songs on the record are the cover of Bee Gees' Emotion, Billy Joel's Just The Way You Are, John Lennon's Imagine, Frank Sinatra's Somewhere Beyond The Sea and All The Way and George Michael's Kissing a Fool. This album is definitely worth buying. I can't find her profile although I searched thru Google.. She looks young and pretty however her voice sounds rather older, and I feel that she sounds a little French, the way she pronounce some words.

I'll rate the album 4/5
