O’s Notes: Japanese composer and producer Alan Chan leads a large jazz ensemble for Shrimp Tale. There are eight well-developed compositions that harness the power of the band without overwhelming the listener. Each song has a distinct theme that makes this an exciting performance to enjoy, especially “Monte Alban” and “Solita” both featuring narrative by Lauren Marks. They touch spots around the world including Japan, Miami, China, Taiwan, Mexico and Los Angeles. Hats off to Alan for a job well done!
