O’s Notes: Korean pianist, composer, band director and co-producer Hyeseon Hong blends her native folk songs with Western classical music and presents it in a jazzy big band format. Soloists include co-producer Matt Panayides (g), Rich Perry (tenor sax) and Ben Kong (alto & soprano sax). We enjoyed “Boat Song” featuring vocalist Subin Park; “Love Song” with trumpet melodies from Ingrid Jensen and the playful spirit of “Trash Digging Queen”.“EE-YA-GI“means“stories“and Hong presents some pretty good ones!
