Notes:

This album has been recorded at my home in Beijing between the month of June 2010 and December 2010.

I composed, wrote, arranged, and recorded everything myself,  except for the songs “Walking in Beijing”, “Mad Horses”, “Take the A train”,  “Summertime” and “Huan Xisha”.

Special thanks to Ubul Tursten (percussions), Guixian (Bass) and Mathieu wahiche (Guitar) who all play on the song “Walking in Beijing” recorded by “Doufu” at 2 Kolegas in July 2010.

Special thanks to Ubul Tursten who plays the percussions on “Mad horses”.

“Take the A train” was composed by Duke Ellington at the beginning of the 20th century.

“Summertime” was composed by George Gershwin at the beginning of the 20th century.

“Huan Xisha” ‘s words are from a poem By Shu Yan  (Song Dynasty).

The album mastering was done by Martin Rawlins in his studio in Beijing.

Cover by Sébastien Mahon.
