The new sounds of jazz
Jazz has been slow to go mainstream in the pop-influenced music industry. The development of jazz encounters even greater obstacles in Hong Kong due to the musical tastes of local listeners. Though many Hong Kong singers, like Jacky Cheung and William So, have attempted to explore jazz, none of them seriously turned the groovy music into their own style. Well aware of the public's traditional views on jazz as old-fashioned music, Bianca Wu has made substantial headway in reinvigorating the jazz genre and introducing it to the Cantopop scene. In her 16th album Moments, the Canto-jazz pioneer finds a fresh approach to jazz by incorporating different musical sounds.

"Sapphire Bowl" (Track 1) is inspired by Song Dynasty poet Xin Qiji's poem about a romantic encounter during the Lantern Festival. The song captures the poem's sentiments through poetic lyrics and traditional Chinese music elements that beautifully harmonize with the jazzy tune, which features soothing synths, trumpet, electric guitar and drums. Bianca's fearlessness to set out on her musical adventure is vividly depicted in the cool jazz and R&B fusion "Black and White" (Track 4), which compares piano keys to the ups and downs of life. The songstress assertively sings about her musical journey in the funky jam, which is accompanied by a pulsing electric guitar and propulsive percussive beats.

Besides jazz, Moments also includes pop ballad. "Self-Travel" (Track 6) has a soft and tranquil melody on piano and cello that aesthetically expresses the great sorrow of breakup. Rather than singing in a sobbing tone, Bianca keeps her singing calm to create a lonely mood for the song. The narrator's intense pain can also be felt through Keith Chan's heartrending lyrics: "Look at the sunset and leave my pain / Let the snowflakes melt my tears." The theme of loneliness continues in "Wishing Tree" (Track 9). The singer quietly croons about the misery of those whose worries are always ignored, even though they're willing to lend their ears to other people's wishes. The protagonist's agony is fully expressed in the emotional twist at the end of the song.

Bianca Wu aggressively incorporates lots of genres into her music with a clear musical direction: discovering the new sounds of jazz. She opens up a new path through various jazz fusions that show her strong determination to promote and preserve the culturally valuable music. The addition of pop ballad may weaken the album's jazzy tone, but the singer's choice reflects her flexible attitude towards music.
