Khoi Minh – Bo Suu Tap 09
Bo Suu Tap 09 is a collection of standards covered by journalist-turned-singer Khoi Minh. Although he has a masculine, harmless voice, he lacks the swag, range and interpretive imagination to make the timeless tunes his own. His rendition of Trinh Cong Son’s “Chieu Mot Minh Qua Pho” is a disastrous, particularly when he tries to give it a jazzy feel. On the duet of Thanh Tung’s “Em va Toi,” Ha Tran smokes his ass like a piece of dried steak with her luscious vocals. Even Do Bao’s and Cuong Nguyen’s productions couldn’t supply wind to his deserted flow. Dude, don’t quit your day job.
