All That Jazz Persian, Minoo Javan

"On this album[All That Jazz but . . . in Persian], Minoo Javan sings soulful American Jazz classics in the soft and romantic Persian language. It was produced by the incomparable Les McCann, an American Jazz icon, who also appears as a guest artist on this recording..Mioo Javan comments on her new album: 
All That Jazz but . . . in Persian (YARE DIRIN), my new release, is a project that has been on my mind for many years, since American Jazz has penetrated my soul in much the same way that Persian music has been embedded in my archetype. After singing countless Persian folk songs and other forms of Persian music, followed by learning and performing Western Classical music and subsequently performing the music of Broadway and Cabaret on various stages in different parts of the world, I found myself still fascinated with an old hunger to somehow interpret the richly textured American Jazz idiom through a Persian lens.."
