about

Extravagant in its stylistic range, “Wong Fei-Hong Meets Little Strudel” is a groove-heavy mash-up of avant-jazz and world musics. Kung Fu soundtracks and Middle European strains collide and refract in its cinematic musical kaleidoscope. Particular features include “The Wong Fei-Hong Theme” and a tribute to Hong Kong martial arts actor Hung Yan-Yan.

This ensemble achieves a wonderfully large sound for a quintet, in the manner of the grand old Mingus groups where the whole was always greater than the sum of the parts.... A great disc.
—Robert Spencer, Cadence

...composer-brassmeister-accordionist Ratliff has fashioned a little quintet that sustains its tenderness and agility while still blowing like Vesuvius. Factor in the gypsy strain that arrives via the Far East and you've got singularity, too.
—Jim Macnie, Village Voice
