Four years after her latest album success album “Lento”, Youn Sun Nah is back with “She Moves On”, her new album to be released on May 19th, 2017.
Outstanding improviser with a fabulous vocal technique, Korean singer is now among the leading figures of the contemporary vocal jazz scene. Youn Sun Nah’s universe is based on a minimalist aesthetic, a search of pureness and intimacy from where the fire of her powerful and full-bodied voice can spring out at any time.
With She Moves On, Youn Sun Nah once again delivers a colourist work, filled with charm and poetry. This time the choice repertoire is inspired by American Folk, Jazz and Singer/Songwrites – featuring a wide range of emotions, both for her own compositions and for an iconoclastic exploration of the repertoires of Jimi Hendrix, Joni Mitchell or Paul Simon.
The album has been recorded in New York, in close collaboration with producer and avant-garde pianist Jamie Saft, featuring Marc Ribot on guitar (Tom Waits, Elvis Costello) and Brad Jones (double bass) & Dan Rieser (drums).
