New CD

Jason Kao Hwang-Sang Won Park Local Lingo Label Name & Number: Euonymus Records Street Date: October 1, 2007

The Asian influence is present in many pieces, but this is new modern music played at a high level. Scott Heller, AURAL-INNOVATIONS.COM Both these men are great soloists and love to push themselves into unexpected situations... this duo blended ancient (sounding) songs with more modern improvisations and created something quite different. Bruce Gallanter, DOWNTOWN MUSIC GALLERY Invention is in constant evolution, from the high notes of the violin to the percussive taps on the strings of the ajeng, to the injection of the melody and its swift evaporation. Local Lingo is seductive and captivating. Jerry D'Souza, ALL ABOUT JAZZ

This new conversation is one stripped bare to the essence of the others, where the two musical voices embody fully and personally what the above arrays of markers only suggested, by comparison. Mike Heffley, SIGNAL TO NOISE
