Shades Of Love (Andayoma) | 3/5

SINGAPORE — The Paris-born, Singapore-based jazz singer Andayoma — real name Guylene Harris and Andayoma is an amalgamation of her daughters’ names — has been making a name for herself in the live circuit here. This album, a follow-up from her previous Palette Of Colours, comprises a couple of covers of jazz favourites and original tunes. It’s also notable for featuring a few of the most recognisable musicians on the circuit here, including Joshua Wan (of the Steve McQueens), Eric Bonheur, Mario Serio and Pablo Calzado. The most notable track is, by far, is I’ll Love You Till I Love You No More. Its lyrics are simple but when delivered in Andayoma’s distinctive style, give the tune some heft. Since a fair amount of the songs are in French or French Guianese Creole, it might work a little better if you understood the languages, but if you just let the music take a hold of you, you’ll find that you’re in fine hands indeed.
