Synopsis

Product Description
Edge of Heaven features instrumental and vocal renditions of songs made famous by two Chinese film and pop music stars of the last century, Chow Hsuan and Bai Kwong. The music is a fascinating Shanghai-based hybrid of Western pop and swing music, Tin Pan Alley stylings and Broadway influences crossed with traditional Chinese music, arranged in Lucas own acoustic blues-based guitar style, while incorporating fresh vocal interpretations by the Singapore TV star Celest Chong and European art-singer Gisburg. For fans of world music, Asian culture, and great guitar-playing...as well as beautiful music, period.
