"Having won Best Female Singer twice at the Golden Melody Awards, and starred in numerous acclaimed films and the Asian leg of Broadway musical Rent, Karen Mok is no doubt among the most prominent entertainers in Asia. In 2013, the versatile Hong Kong singer-actress is finally realizing her dream of making a jazz album. Made with the international market in mind, and counting such notable jazz musicians as Bugge Wesseltoft and Watanabe Sadao in the production crew, Somewhere I Belong is Karen’s most ambitious album yet, creating a brand of ""Oriental jazz"" that combines Western jazz sounds with unique Chinese styles.
The album’s eclectic selection includes 1930s jazz standards like My Funny Valentine, Cole Porter’s Love for Sale and George Gershwin’s The Man I Love, as well as reworked modern pop/rock hits like Sting’s Moon Over Bourbon Street and Chris Isaak’s Wicked Games. Ever the innovative artist, Karen plays the Chinese instrument guzheng herself in her stylish rendition of The Beatles’ While My Guitar Gently Weeps. She also gives Zhou Xuan’s classic Mandarin number ""Shanghai Nights"" a jazzy edge, and includes a brand new nostalgic song she composed called Qing Guo Qing Cheng.
暌違兩年,金曲歌后莫文蔚婚後推出首張雙語(國語、英語)爵士專輯《Somewhere I Belong》,巧妙融合東西方的音樂元素,打造屬於東方的爵士音樂,她還大秀學習多年的古箏和百老匯舞台劇的功架。
Karen重新演繹二、三年代美國爵士流行金曲包括Cole Porter的「Love For Sale」、George Gershwin的「The Man I Love」、百老匯名曲「My Funny Valentine」,也以爵士樂曲式翻唱了搖滾詩人Sting的「Moon Over Bourbon Street」、Chris Isaak的「Wicked Games」和英國電子樂團Portishead的「Sour Time」,又把The Beatles的經典名曲「While My Guitar Gently Weeps」的配樂以古箏取代吉他彈奏。國語歌方面,她則挑戰中國金嗓歌后周璇的傳世金曲,以東方的爵士韻味唱出「夜上海」,並創作一首復古歌曲「傾國傾城」。 "
