Jacintha is a Singaporean jazz singer/torch singer and stage actress who has been well-known in parts of the Asia-Pacific region since the ’80s and has been increasing her exposure in North America since the late ’90s. Jacintha has never been the type of jazz artist who goes out of her way to be abstract, difficult, or complicated; her work has been quite accessible and easy to absorb, drawing on direct or indirect influences that have included Julie London and Shirley Horn as well as Brazilian star Astrud Gilberto.

Inspired mainly by Ms. London’s 1st Liberty album, Julie Is Her Name & its spare guitar & acoustic bass formats, Jacintha & arranger/pianist Bill Cunliffe (recently nominated for a Jazz Arranging Grammy) have come up with a spectacular new record. Using the guitar & bass combo as a basic springboard, the album has taken some of the songs most closely associated with Ms. London (e.g. Cry Me A River, & some not so familiar like Light My Fire), & transformed them into the kind of material that Jacintha handles best. Intimate, sexy, seductive.
