Two kinds of jazz singers in Japan


Japanese jazz vocalist Mutsuko Kawamoto said in one of her tweets below on August 17, 2017.

"You are not required to have a particular voice quality to be a jazz vocalist, but you have to be cut out for one. And I want to emphasize that there are two kinds of jazz singers in Japan: one is jazz vocalists and another, which is unique to Japan, is those who sing like jazz. They are close but not the same."

Well, I will not go to listen to the songs played by those who sing like jazz.
