The World of SUSAN WONG

"Just a Little Bossa Nova" shows that the World of Susan Wong has expanded.
Previous albums were catalogs of mainstream movie themes, jazz standards and harmless pop ("Desperado" or "Killing Me Softly").
Let's say "Eva Cassidy, East."
On this 2005 album, the safe and tasteful singer rocks gently with the expected beats ("Girl from Ipanema" and a slightly more exotic take on "Beyond the Sea"), and tries an interesting twist by adding bongo and maracas to John Lennon's "Imagine." You don't have to imagine that exotic Wong song, or the rest of this hard to find album. Just download via RS.

That righteous album Of Wong Bossa Nova
Update: This one timed out from lack of interest. "Won't somebody sing one of them somebody done somebody Wong wrong songs..."
