Review: Jovovic is a jazz singer from Serbia, who sings in different styles without accent. Her solo debut contains a mix of Balkan traditions with R&B, jazz and poetry. Jelena wrote 6 of the 10 tracks, and arranged the arrangements for the remaining 4. Her vocal magic is supported by a rather extensive group of talented players.
