"Dance" is the second album by Chinese Pipa virtuoso Jiang Ting. More accessible than her solo debut on MA ("Voice of the Pipa" - M061A), the album includes some of the most famous music in contemporary Chinese culture, including a unique duet arrangement of "The Olive Tree", the 1970's movie theme known to virtually every modern Chinese. In this recording Jiang Ting also makes her singing debut, the lyrics as follows:

Don't ask where I come from, my hometown is far away

Why do you room, roam so far?

For the little birds flying In the sky

For the softly flowing streams In the mountains

For the broad grasslands

I roam, roam so far

And for the olive tree,

The olive tree in my dreams

Don't ask where I come from, my hometown is far away

Why do you roam, roam so far?

For the olive tree in my dreams

As with Jiang Ting's first recording, "Dance" was recorded in the same Italian church situated on a mountain in the countryside near the medieval town of Lucca. However, unlike her first album, which was recorded at 96 kHz, this new release was recorded at 176.4 kHz with 24 bit resolution technology. For this new recording as well, she acquired a new Pipa which is richer in harmonics.

Finally, but just as important, is the guest appearance by Jia Pengfang, the famous Er Hu/Chinese violin player who lives & concertizes in Japan.

Todd Garfinkle MA producer/engineer
