¶  "With her universal yet individual style Youn Sun Nah gives traditional vocal jazz a new flavour, while unconventionally and effortlessly exploring new exciting spaces. She is one of the most outstanding representatives of vocal jazz that includes the whole spectrum of contemporary music."

¶  It's been three days since the release of Youn Sun NAH's 8th studio album, 'Lento'. And in the span of time, it has reached the No.1 spot of Amazon France's jazz album list alongside iTunes France's Jazz Chart. As of now, the album is available in Europe and South Korea whilst the release in Germany via ACT Music is slated for March 22nd along with North America.
¶  The latest album contains 11 tracks, 6 of which were written by Youn Sun NAH herself. You'll find that having covered Metallica's Enter Sandman in her previous album, 'Same Girl', this round she has taken on Nine Inch Nail's Hurt as well as famous country tune, Ghost Riders In The Sky. There's also a special track available only on the South Korea release entitled  초우 by composer Park Chun-seok.
¶  If you'd like to preview the album, you can visit this particular German site, Spiegel Online as they are currently offering an internet stream to listen to the album. The stream will end on the day of the album release in Germany.
¶  For vinyl fans, you'll be excited to learn that ACT Music is also releasing 'Lento' in 180gr Doppel-Vinyl-LP version.
¶  “A miracle“, “a great piece of art“, “enchanting” “a worldclass
singer” – just some of the overwhelmingly positive
responses from the press to these albums. Within two years
Nah had received her fourth “Korean Music Award”, the
BMW World Jazz Award and the ECHO Jazz Award for
best international female singer whilst in France, her second
home, “Same Girl” was the best selling jazz album of the
year in 2011, Nah received the “Prix Mimi Perrin du Jazz
Vocal“ as female vocalist of the year, the leading magazine
“Jazzman“ awarded her with “Choc de l'annee 2012” as
artist of the year and she was granted the title of nobility
“Chevalier de l‘Ordre des Arts et des Lettres” by the culture
secretary, putting her in the prominent company of such
stars as David Bowie, Dee Dee Bridgewater and Dustin
¶  What is the secret of her remarkable success? Her new
album “Lento” gives an explanation by combining Youn Sun
Nah’s unique qualities. One of them is the blending of
different cultural and musical sources, in a respectful yet
unconventional manner. Besides jazz and related styles, she
draws on chanson, pop and folk music, and in addition to
compositions by herself and her band members, there is the
extremely light version of the Korean folk song “Arirang” as
well as “Hurt” by the alternative rock band Nine Inch Nails,
and Stan Jones’ “Ghost Riders In The Sky”, a classic
country song made famous by Johnny Cash.
¶  For the first time Nah also calls upon European classical
music: Alexander Skrjabin’s Prelude op. 16 Nr. 4 in E minor
with its tempo indication ”Lento” was a source of inspiration
for the album’s title, and it also sets up an intimate,
atmospheric and harmonious musical world. Youn Sun Nah
unfolds her expressive power especially in the peaceful and
slow-paced moments – on the fragile chanson “Full Circle”,
with heartbreaking grievance on “Lament” or artistic unison
singing on “Momento Magico”.
¶  Korean jazz vocalist Youn-Sun Nah continues to wow music fans across the globe with the release of her seventh album, [Same Girl]!
¶  Premier German jazz label, ACT released Youn-Sun Nah's sixth studio album [Voyage] in 2008. The release gained high praises from the media and music critics all over Europe. The Voyage project has toured over 19 countries and 50 cities. The new studio album [Same Girl] will surely surpass that success.
¶  In [Same Girl], Youn-Sun Nah continues to explore the many facets of music. The album showcases a diverse selection of songs reinterpreted with her own unique style. ¶  The songs range from 'Enter Sandman' by Rock legends Metallica to the beautiful French chanson 'La Chanson d'Hélène', Korean traditional tune 'Kangwondo Arirang' to her new original composition 'Uncertain Weather'. Collaborating with world famous jazz artists Ulf Wakenius, Lars Danielsson and many others, the combination resulted in another amazing music offering.

¶  Michel Contat from French Media Company Telerama exclaims, “Delicious is the word that comes to mind when you listen to Youn Sun Nah. But the young Korean is also moving, radiant, sometimes funny, always sensual, a spicy creature of the night. Her voice is ideally in tune, with trills in the upper register that cleave you to the core." Her collaboration with Ulf Wakenius at this point of Nah’s musical journey presents a unique performance filled to the brim with emotions and impressive musical talent; one that many have experienced and yearn for more. "We often imagine that jazz can only come from the US or from Europe, and in that case, mainly from France. Well, you can throw out all those received ideas: the greatest jazz singer of today is Korean. Her name is Youn Sun NAH. Those fortunate enough to have seen her on stage know to what dizzying heights she can lead them,” proclaims Renaud Czarnes of Les Echos (France).
