Crime Zone – Connie Han

Album: Crime Zone

Artist: Connie Han

Genre: World/Jazz

Sub-Genres: Jazz Blues

Label: Mack Avenue II, LLC

Non-Airable Tracks: NONE


This is my first time fully listening to a world/jazz album and I’m wondering to myself why I have not listened to more of this genre. “Another Kind of Right” is very upbeat and zestful whereas “Crime Zone” sounds mysterious, like a soundtrack that comes from Pink Panther. “By the Grace of God” sounds like a continuation of the ladder, and “Southern Rebellion” and “A Shade of Jade” is more fast-paced and sounds mysterious. In contrast,

“Member This” sounds like something played in romantic comedy film inside a bar when a man and a woman meet for the first time and feel an instant connection. “Is That So?” gives a sassy vibe with the prominent sound of the saxophone whereas “Extended Stay” gives a satisfying finale and asks listeners to stay longer to listen once more. I think Connie Han did an excellent job portraying the emotions solely through the use of instruments, and I am so excited to play the songs when I am having a fancy dinner with friends!

Sounds Like: Amy Cervini,

Recommended Tracks: 

  1. Track 4: “Pretty Woman” – queue on a date over fine wine and cheese

  2. Track 6: “Grüvy” – rosy, slow yet mellow
