With all that terrible haze outside, there’s good reason to stay home and cuddle up with your favourite book while listening to Lisa Ono’s relaxing voice.
The Japanese-Brazilian bossa nova singer puts her spin on a wide range of oldies in her latest release, My Favorite Songs.
Her cover of Whatever Will Be, Will Be (Que Sera, Sera), made popular by Doris Day, is warm and assuring, sung with both the innocence of a child and the wisdom of a motherly figure.
Ono continues to sooth the soul on her renditions of jazz standard Summertime and B.J. Thomas’ Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head.
Elvis Presley’s Jailhouse Rock is quite a surprising addition – and it actually works, breaking the monotony and adding a new dimension to the album.
