爵士台灣映象 Impressions of Taiwan
Press Articles The very mention of Jazz immediately evokes the impression of western music. But in fact, 
Jazz can be very Taiwanese as well. Musician Hsieh Chi-pin and Chang Kai-ya found 
inspirations from everyday life and incorporated landscape, culture and other characteristics 
of life in Taiwan into their musical composition, which created a much unique style of  jazz music. 

With a twist of Latin flavor and a taste of Jazzy style, the snappy beat takes you on a ride through 
the "Green Tunnel".

Traveling on even land is nothing, just let the melody take you high on Yang Ming Shan, and also find the joyous Taiwanese folk tune "The Sky is Black". The higher up the mountain, the higher is the mood, and even the violin can't stop hopping with rhythm.

This song titled "The Grandparents at Two-Hundred-and-Thirty" is one of the original tunes by musicians Hsieh Chi-pin and Chang Kai-Ya. Through the jumping rhythm, the carefree nature of the grandparents chatting away while waiting for the bus to Yang Ming Shan is vividly presented. These newlyweds who had just tied the knot back in February even used many Jazz chords to document many of Taiwan's pastoral scenes, which also forms a localized new sound that may be appropriately called Taiwan's New Jazz.
