After a period of introspection, personal as well as artistic, Korean musician Youn Sun Nah returns to her first loves as a “jazz singer” by coming out with a new album, soberly titled Elles. During this period, she travelled to the US for the duration of a collaboration with Jamie Saft, focused on a repertoire of pop-rock songs in English (She Moves On), and then definitively affirmed her talents as a songwriter with the release of a record composed entirely of her own pieces for the first time in her career (Waking World). This new album takes the intimate duo format which suits her so well, as she is accompanied on the piano - as well as on the Wurlitzer keyboard and Fender Rhodes - by American Jon Cowherd (member of the Brian Blade Fellowship since 1998 and sought-after partner of singers like Cassanfra Wilson and Lizz Wright). With the vocal expertise we know to expect from her, Youn Sun Nah interprets the abounding seductiveness of an eclectic repertoire consisting of great jazz, pop, and chanson classics made famous by iconic female artists. Passing masterfully from Björk (“Cocoon”) to Édith Piaf (“La Foule”), from Grace Jones (“Libertango”) to Nina Simone (“Feeling Good”), from Grace Slick of Jefferson Airplane (“White Rabbit”) to Roberta Flack (“Killing Me Softly”), the singer yet again her imbues very personal interpretations, magnificently orchestrated by Cowherd’s various keyboards, with an emotional intensity that is so unique. It is paradoxically supported by a sort of expressive modesty founded on a greatly precise sense of phrasing, and uses the subtle art of vibrato to allow the unfathomable depths of these songs that we thought we knew by heart to surface. © Stéphane Ollivier/Qobuz
