윤.. - Yoon A-Jeang

The album cover is highly misleading, because the Korean zither is hardly if ever heard on the album. The album is composed jazz with some Korean traditional folk elements, most often in a relaxed, most secure almost feminine way of composing. The most unique part is the cello improvisation on the traditional Korean 'arirang' melody, which interpreted in a couple ways. In the first track it turned into traditional jazz and cello improvisation melodic-wise and with jazz rhythm. From then it turns into a relaxed cello / acoustic guitar / piano / double bass mood play. Some jazz/pop moody improvised singing is added on the next track. This is followed by the title track, jazz-tango.

-Afterwards I realised the original sound of the "cello" might be bowed Korean zither after all.-
