Hong Kong jazz fixture Palor is making her mark on the album world with this release of warm and flowing jazz tunes, fit for many an easy evening. Palor’s voice swims around the instruments and the album has a nice warm live feel as the music offers bounce and life.
The choice of tunes roams between standards (“Fly Me To The Moon” and “Girl From Ipanema?) to new compositions by album producer Dan Lavelle.
“Because I Do? is even one of the finest tracks heard on a local release in a long time.
The jazz and soul mix in Polar’s mouth come out around the cozy sounds to form an utterly compelling addition to Hong Kong’s growing jazz canon.
