East Meets West

Popular Vietnamese tune combined with sophisticated jazz rhythms: Peter Zak’s quartet plays Trinh Cong Son’s “Nghe Nhung Tan Phai.” The track is from Peter’s Purple Refrain.

Renowned classical melody get rejuvenated with blazing Cuban beats: The Klazzbrothers and the Cuba Percussion give Beethoven’s “Fur Elise” a fascinating makeover, and I thought ring tones have killed this song. The track is from Classic Meets Cuba.
