In 2017, I had a truly meaningful ten-day trip to Taiwan as part of my fellowship with the Asian Cultural Council (ACC). I knew nothing of the country or the culture before visiting, but I left inspired by the extraordinary kindness of each and every person I met. Strangers walking me to my destination when I got lost, opening their homes for me to stay, showing me the wonders of the Taipei night market… I never felt anything but welcome in every place I went. Couple that with a stunning countryside, mystical temples, and exquisite cuisine, and you have a tiny island oasis that’s unlike any place in the world.

This piece is dedicated to the people I met in Taiwan. It’s recorded on a dizi I bought there, and though I’m no expert on it, I think that’s perfectly appropriate to represent the experience of a foreigner trying to understand and fit into a new culture. I’m thrilled that three of the musicians I met during my visit who inspired the tune were able to record on it, literally embodying the inspiration for the piece. Special thanks to Min-chin Kuo (郭岷勤), Yu-wei Hsieh (謝宇威), and Chia-kun Chen (陳家崑) for playing on this, and to Chi-wei Ho (何其偉) and Yao-Hsing Li (李曜行) for recording the audio and video in Taipei.

Additional special thanks to all those I met in Taiwan who showed me the best in humanity: Charlotte Fleming, Rita Chang and the ACC Taipei, Vincent Lin (林長志), Melody Lee (軒念), Guo Wenming (郭文明), Pan I-tung (潘宜彤), Jen Chung (任重), Ching-Tung Liao (廖錦棟), Tsai Chia-fen (蔡佳芬), Kao Chen-Ning (高辰寧), Chao-Hsien Tu (杜昭賢), Wan-Jung Wu (吳婉榕), Yang Yu-wen (楊有文) from Ten Drum Village, Ying-Chen Lin (林映辰), Charles Tang (唐瑋廷), Charlie Silva, Sean Sinclair, Jessica Luk, and all of the affable strangers who went out of their way to accommodate a lost-looking American. This song is for you.

Written, arranged, mixed and produced by Zac Zinger.

John Leslie “Wes” Montgomery (March 6, 1923 – June 15, 1968) was an American jazz guitarist. He is widely considered one of the major jazz guitarists, emerging after such seminal figures as Django Reinhardt and Charlie Christian and influencing countless others. Montgomery was known for an unusual technique of plucking the strings with the side of his thumb which granted him a distinctive sound.

He often worked with organist Jimmy Smith, and with his brothers Buddy (piano and vibes) and Monk (bass guitar). His recordings up to 1965 were generally oriented towards hard bop, soul jazz and post bop, while circa 1965 he began recording more pop-oriented instrumental albums that featured less improvisation but found mainstream success. His later-career guitar style is a major influence on fusion and smooth jazz.
