Jon Jang & the Pan Asian Arkestra - Never Give Up! (1989)





















This is a pretty rare CD. It was always out-of print when I tried to order it from Asian Improv. I actually button-holed Jon Jang, the owner of the label, at a concert in DC to ask him when it would re-released. He had no idea. I later found a copy at a local used CD store. It was worth the wait.

Piano: Jon Jang
Bass: Mark Izu
drums: Anthony Brown,Susan Hayase
Trumpet: John Worley, Jr.
Trombone: Jeff Cressman
Reeds: Melecio Magdaluyo, Francis Wong, Fred Ho, Jim Norton
