“Suite Shanghai Nights” at JZ Club

Filed under: music, travel, China Tour 12 — burnett @ 7:05 am

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.
