Jason Kao Hwang & Burning Bridge: Blood

Read "Blood" reviewed by John Sharpe

As the follow-up to his Burning Bridge octet's eponymous debut (Innova, 2012), violinist Jason Kao Hwang has created another ambitious and wide-ranging work.

Getting To Know Ras Moshe

Read "Getting To Know Ras Moshe" reviewed by Dom Minasi
