5.0 out of 5 stars Sumi Jo The Collection, 29 Dec. 2011
By 
This review is from: The Collection (Audio CD)
This album is drawn from many of Ms Jo,s previous works. It is a very good start for anyone new to her wonderful voice, containing as it does works spanning centuries of musical evolution.

Listen to "Marble Halls" a couple of times and I guarantee you will rediscover the lost art of whistling, a glorious tune that simply will not leave your mind.

Sumi Jo is one of very few classically trained (true singers) who can successfully sing contemporary works using her "pop voice" It is a true revelation to hear apparently mediocre songs come to life under the influence of her artistry.

Sumi Jo simply the best!

It's strange - how I felt exactly as the reviewer.
I found Sumi Jo by virtue of "Marble Halls" - which was a tune I loved & whistled interminably (according to my wife), which I didn't know particularly accurately & suddenly decided one day to see how it was really sung. So I tried Joan Sutherland which was pretty nice (if not pretty) & then I stumbled on Sumi Jo singing it & my whole existence changed!
I still can't decide whether I prefer her classical rendition or the "pop version"; either way she's an awesome singer, beauty, personality & to quote another fan, one has not lived one's life until one's heard Sumi Jo - the greatest!

So glad you have "discovered" Sumi. I have been lucky enough to adore her for over 2 decades now and have even received a hug and kisses on the cheeks <3. That aside her voice is too me the best ever. True occasionally another performs one particular piece better but she is the "complete package" Also she has a very kind heart and is a most generous lady too.
