About the Album

The vibraphone has been the hip instrument in jazz for the past few years and one reason is the work of Chien Chien Lu. After a self-released debut in 2020, Lu joins the Giant Step Arts roster with Built In System (Live from New York), recorded at Hunter College's Ida K. Lang Hall as part of Giant Step Arts' Open Recording Session/Concert series. Built In System (Live from New York) is a triply stirring showcase for Lu: as a composer of all eight tracks, as a player of unique influences and gifts, and as an assured bandleader of a group of highly regarded veterans.
