Burger, Rob: City Of Strangers (Tzadik)
Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"Robert Burger has worked with Laurie Anderson, Rufus Wainwright, Lucinda Williams, Iron & Wine, and was a founding member of chamber music collective Tin Hat Trio. His first Tzadik CD, Lost Photograph, was released in 2002 to great acclaim. Performing on a multitude of instruments, and complemented by some of the greatest names in new music, Robert presents City Of Strangers, a deep and eclectic collection of film cues that reveals, once again, the boundless and potent gifts of an important contributor."-Tzadik

"Eyvindur (Eyvind) Kang (born 23 June 1971 in Corvallis, Oregon, United States) is a composer and violist. He was raised in Canada and the United States, and has since lived and worked in countries ranging from Italy to Iceland.

A recurring theme in his solo work is the "NADE", the meaning of which Kang is not willing to disclose. Referring titles include "Theme from the first NADE", "5th NADE/Invisible Man", "Theme from the sixth NADE" (all three from the debut album 7 NADEs, 1996); "Jewel of the NADE", "Mystic NADE" (both from Theater of Mineral NADEs, 1998) and "Harbour of the NADE" (Virginal Co-ordinates, 2003). His preferred instrument is the viola.

In 2014 Kang visited Vossajazz in western Norway, for a gig with Bill Frisell's trio Beautiful Dreamers, including with drummer Rudy Royston, for the opening concert. During the concert Norwegian trumpeter Arve Henriksen joined in for a tune."
