In Korean, it’s called han—an elusive but poignant feeling, the bittersweet longing mixed with shades of pleasant melancholy. A similar emotion pervades lusophone music as saudade, and ducks in and out of the blues. That feeling first hit Korean-born, Paris-honed singer Youn Sun Nah as a young woman, when she listened to Brel and Brassens, and the great chanson singers. Years later, she perfected her precise, delicate, utterly dedicated approach to transmitting that enigmatic yearning. She moved to
France to pursue her love of jazz and discovered a circle of like-minded top European jazz players to buoy her efforts.
On her latest album, Lento (ACT Music, 2014) and now on her first West Coast tour, Nah and guitarist Ulf Wakenius (who long played with the late great Oscar Peterson) explore Nah’s ongoing fascination with jazz, pop, Korean folk, Western classical, and even metal and industrial music (Nah has covered songs by Metallica and Nine Inch Nails, among others).
