Coming up at JZ: the Expo Suite, JZ Sweet Suite, Planets…

Global Times Article, “Jazz Strikes a Chord with Chinese Notes”

This Sunday, April 11, I’ll be hosting the stage at JZ club with my old friends EJ Parker on bass, Chris Trzcinski on drums.  We will be joined by Alec Haavik, the astounding and unpredictable reed player, violinist Peng Fei, Pipa player Lin Di and hopefully Wilson Chen on alto sax.  On the menu for the evening is the much anticipated Expo Suite.   The ink is not yet dry on this piece, so the fact that it may not even be completed by Sunday increases the excitement.

Lin Di has been a vital contributor to the group Cold Fairyland.  CF is a Chinese traditional/rock fusion band.  Listen to Black Wing  at the Myspace site. Lin Di and I will do the Liu Tianhua piece Zhu Ying Yao Hong, Mercury from my own Planets, Exhale from the  mysterious Expo Suite,  and Fly Away, an old composition from the “early Burnett” period.  

Sunday, April 11.  JZ Club.  46 Fu Xing xi Lu, Shanghai.  10:30 p.m. Admission is Free.
