Chan, Bang Wen Fu , Tan Kah Yong and Peng Chi Sheng. Dr Liang's new contemporary Chinese poems will also be showcased in the album.
Well I am a big fan of local productions, and of course he is my "si siong" in school, so that makes it two reasons to get this.
However it was rather disappointing...
Technically the recording is good, but its more Jimmy Chan than Liang Wern Fook...
It is a jazzed up version of some of his famous hits. And it reminds me of those music played in restaurants, and shows no real new breakthrough.
I listened to most of the album already, and there are many familar hits to hum too, but its nothing new.
Recommended for those nostalgic people and those who just prefer instrumentals.
I have no financial interest or other interests in any of the items / events I write about.
