    ProducerNguyen Le

    Nguyn L: Nguyn L (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, electronics); Paul McCandless (bass clarinet, oboe, English horn, sopranino saxophone, soprano saxophone, tenor saxophone); Art Lande (piano); Jamey Haddad (drums, percussion).
    Guitarist Nguyn Le explores a wide span of modern styles throughout Walking on the Tiger's Tail. Some of the up-tempo pieces are essentially fusion while other selections look towards the folk-jazz of Oregon (helped out by the many horns of Paul McCandless), world music and post-bop jazz. The bassless quartet finds each of the musicians assuming the role of the bass at one time or another, and so effectively that one rarely notices its absence. Le's passionate guitar solos, the mixture of stylists and styles, and the inventive originals (which include some impressionistic ballads) make the music completely unclassifiable as anything but stimulating 21st century creative jazz. ~ Scott Yanow

    JazzTimes (p.96) - "His brand of world jazz - fashioned from gentle arpeggios, sudden changes in tone and bright melodies - is its own genre."
