My visits to Shanghai inevitably focus on my latest compositions, in this case the “Suite Shanghai Nights” collection. I wrote this specifically with saxophonist Wilson Chen in mind. His superb work on the Shakespeare Sonnet Song Cycle is still ringing in my ears, and I wanted to take things a step further. Here are the videos, recorded from the April 4 performance. Wang Bai Ling, soprano; Wilson Chen, sax; EJ Parker, bass; Chris Trczinski, drums, Burnett Thompson, composer & pianist.
