If you have heard of the name Susan Wong you’ll know how good her vocals are when it comes to listening to her Smooth Jazz music collection. Hailing from Hong Kong, Susan Wong also known as 黃翠珊, released a few albums since the early 2000s and all I can say is her songs are good for the ears and I rated this the best female vocals & Jazz music for audiophiles. Below is a music video for you to get started.
Some of her cover songs are extraordinary because she can sing and transform a Pop song to a Smooth Jazz version of ‘Bille Jean’, ‘How Deep Is Your Love’, ‘Cry Me A River’ and many more. Most of her songs are Smooth Jazz & Bossa Nova Jazz.
Susan released her first ‘Close To You’ album in 2002, which consist of 11 songs like Killing Me Softly, Fly Me To The Moon, Close to You, Love Will Keep Us Alive and etc. I’ll just dive straight into editor’s pick for 4 of my favorite Susan Wong’s album below.
