CD Review:

"Gao Hong, a virtuoso pipa player, presents a series of

cross-cultural pieces on “Flying Dragon”, blending

traditional Chinese music with Indian, Japanese and

American jazz. The first track, “Morning,” is actually

nothing short of spectacular... The title cut is a solo...

Here, the structure, first melancholy then triumphant,

achieves a fine balance... “Cutting Grain Song” finds

her with shakuhachi master Yoshio Kurahashi, performing

a traditional Japanese tune. Again, a beautiful number... "
