Album Notes
ULTRA WORLD X-TET combines jazz, world, experimental and contemporary concert styles in a pioneering mix of music and culture.
It’s a joyful, intelligent, soulful and elegant fusion of East and West for the 21st Century. The band instrumentation includes saxophone, bamboo flutes, multiple guzhengs (23 string Chinese zither), bass, and percussion. The Guzheng and Chinese Bamboo flutes bring a rich history of over 2000 years to the overall sound which is modern and adventurous. The X-tet's unique sound casts an electrifying spell.

Beautiful CD
What an original sound. Really fine musicians, the Sax, Flute, Guzheng and Psychedelic guitar...wonderful! Exotic mix of fiery improv with peaceful, ambient sections to balance it. Takes you to a different world. Highly recommended.

Played this at my dinner party the other night. It was a hit!! It's simply wonderful, upbeat music! Even better live! If only I could afford to have them play in my living room =)

It's so different it's hard to describe. The best I can do is:
Beautiful and utterly unique!

Fire and Ice, this stuff is Great
Takes you from chill ambient vistas to high energy smokin' solos. The musicians have major chops. Beautiful melodies. Real unusual sound. Excellent CD!
