Hong Kong 360

Mark Hooper is the host of Hong Kong 360, a Radio Lantau interview-based talk show featuring voices of Hong Kong opinion leaders. The show is a platform to discuss and spotlight Hong Kong politics, arts, culture and current events, with those interesting people/characters participating in Hong Kong’s vibrant city scene.

Hong Kong 360 - Episode 45 - Jazz Fusion

This week we continue a theme started last week when we spoke with Clarence Chang, founder of Jazz World Live Series here in Hong Kong. On the show last week we discussed some great music, and I thought we’d close out Season 2 of Hong Kong 360 w/ Mark Hooper playing the music that I love and that we discussed --jazz fusion. Jazz fusion really had its heyday in the 1970s and 1980s, and some great bands emerged from those days: Return to Forever with Chich Corea, Weather Report, The Mahavishnu Orchestra, Herbie Hancock and many others. Today…we’ll listen to some of this iconic music….

Playlist:

“Song To The Pharoah Kings” – Return to Forever featuring Chick Corea

“Nubian Sandance” – Weather Report

“Spank-A-Lee” – Herbie Hancock

“Red Baron” – Billy Cobham

“What It Is” – Miles Davis

“Snake Oil” – Tony Williams Lifetime
