Hanjin Tan

Here's one of those rare multi-disciplinary musicians who is at that stage in his career where you know he's brilliant but you can't quite put a finger on what he's exactly about just yet. He sings straight from the heart but if you listen closely, there lies some immaculate technique and maturity under all that unchecked emotion. He's dabbled in a myriad of genres from rock to chinese pop music and now he's put out a back-to-basics jazz album. You just can't help but wonder what he's gonna do next.

Hanjin is a “Jack of all trades”, and there are only a few in Asia. He is an award-winning record producer and songwriter, a trend-setting arranger and mixer, as well as an acclaimed singer. An absolute show-stealer....

“Standout tracks include a jive-worthy version of “Honeysuckle Rose” and ”That Old Black Magic,” in which Candelaria's bass grounds Tan's larger- than-life channeling of the already larger-than-life Sammy Davis Jr. Exuberant and unexpected, this album reveals a little-known side to a town that clearly knows how to swing,” reviewed by TIME MAGAZINE (April 6, 2009 Issue).

“Hanjin is a technically accomplished vocalist. He has been compared to Michael Buble, but these small group recordings are far removed from the Canadian singer's big-band performances, and his phrasing in the upper area of his register is closer to Aaron Neville's,” reviewed by Robin Lynam on South China Morning Post (March 15, 2009).

“Hanjin excels at departing from written melodies, and while that's not always everybody's cup of tea, he always does it with loads of character and good taste.” Business Times (April 24, 2009)
