O’s Notes: San Francisco-based vocalist Bill Kwan enlisted the support of New York musicians for his fifth album No Ordinary Love. This is an interesting take on the music of Sade. Her style is often appreciated but seldom successfully covered. Bill Kwan puts his soft, pop vocals on top of the R&B-based originals in an intriguing and rather different approach. Highlights are two lesser-known tracks, “The Moon and the Sky” and “The Big Unknown”.
