Wong Fei-Hong Meets Little Strudel
An urbane, groovy mix of avant-jazz and world musics, from Kung Fu movies to cha cha. Featuring 'The Wong Fei-Hong Theme' and a tribute to Hong Kong martial arts actor Hung Yan-Yan. With Michael Attias (saxophones), Sam Bardfeld (violin), John Hebert (bass), Kevin Norton (drums and vibraphone) and Edward Ratliff (compositions, trumpet, cornet, trombone, euphonium, accordion). 'This ensemble achieves a wonderfully large sound for a quintet, in the manner of the grand old Mingus groups where the whole was always greater than the sum of the parts.... A great disc.' Robert Spencer, Cadence.
