Track 10, ZJJ 4 Seasons - a traditional folk song - features local singer Yang Guanghua.

Wonderful World Fusion music by accomplished multi-instrumentalist
The soothing tones and inviting melodies of multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Moyer’s fine CD, "Mangoes, Musical Shorts, Vol. 1," adds up to a thoroughly enjoyable World Fusion listening experience. Making the intricate fretwork on various instruments sound effortless, Moyer’s skills are front and center, both as a musician and as a composer. The peaceful, lulling track, "Bedtime Stories," utilizes the aforementioned string instruments to their maximum potential; the melody is that of a familiar lullaby, but unique twists are added that make this rendition truly singular. "Worker's Theme Song," with its expressive percussion, adds a rhythmic element to the album, while the Brazilian feel of “El Chino Guapo” showcases yet a different side of Moyer’s musical reach. For World Music that's exciting and different, but not daunting, Jeremy Moyer’s "Mangoes, Musical Shorts, Vol. 1" is a great choice.
