Jon Jang Sextet – Butterfly Lovers (1995)

Butterfly Lovers composed by  Chen Gang and He Zhan Hao is the last track on the album Two Flowers on a Stem by Jon Jang Sextet.

Pianist/composer Jon Jang has long created music that combines advanced jazz with aspects of his Chinese heritage. For this superb disc of inside/outside music, Jang utilizes a sextet also featuring the remarkable flutist James Newton, David Murray on tenor and bass clarinet, bassist Santi Debriano, drummer Billy Hart, and Chen Jiebing on a haunting cello-like instrument called the erhu. Strong passionate melodies give way to straight-ahead jamming, free sections, and other themes. [source]
