about

Award-winning composer and multi-instrumentalist Zac Zinger makes his debut with twelve original tracks combining jazz fusion and Japanese traditional music. He does so by introducing the shakuhachi, a primitive five-holed Japanese bamboo flute, to the jazz fusion quartet. A collection of his best compositions for small jazz ensemble over 10 years, each piece is through-composed with meticulous detail, and together display Zinger’s decade-long evolution as a jazz musician gathering influence from his immersion in American and Japanese cultures.

Zinger is joined by some of New York’s best progressive jazz musicians in his rhythm section, with Sharik Hasan on piano, Adam Neely on electric bass, and Luke Markham on drum set. Pianist Kana Dehara is a featured special guest on three of the tracks, including the neo-classical shakuhachi/piano duet, “An American in Tokyo.” And for his tribute to the people and culture of Taiwan, Zinger enlisted the services of Taiwanese musicians Min-Chin Kuo on guzheng (traditional Chinese zither), Chia-kun Chen on erhu (traditional Chinese violin), and renowned vocalist Yu-Wei Hsieh.
