Change is Not for Quang Dung

Before releasing his new album, Khi, Quang Dung told the press that he would incorporate jazz into his repertoire for a change. Much as I like to see a singer gets out of his comfort zone, change is not for him. He’s a pop singer, not interpreter. (When was the last time he reinvented a standard?) He can’t swing or ride fast beats because he doesn’t have much rhythmic flexibility. So if you’re expecting something jazzy in Quang Dung, forget about it. If you wonder if he could make you dance, forget about it. But if you still want to hear him croons slow, romantic ballads, he still got them.
