The elusive and eluding Hong Kong pianist Albert Hunt has just released his eagerly awaited third album, Hong Kong Gardens. The album is intended to be a modern musical interpretation of traditional classical music, influenced by modern classical music such as Beethoven, Mozart, Elton John, Handel, Haydn, Vivaldi, J. S. Bach, Brahms, and Richard Wagner. Albert Hunt says the songs on the album, which features him alongside the Hong Kong band, have been written specifically for his Chinese audience. The music has also been inspired by the works of composers such as John Coltrane, Howard Roberts, and Thomas Moran. The album also features traditional Chinese songs, including one entitled “Zhou Zong”, which was written by Feng Shui. The piano pieces are also influenced by traditional Chinese music and martial arts.
The album’s first single, titled “We Are The Champions”, is an excellent example of Hong Kong grit. It begins with a hard hitting bass drum sample and rapidly speeds up into a high-pitched electronic sound reminiscent of a number from the soundtrack of the movie 300, set during the war. Following the break, there’s a heavy bassline reminiscent of the early albums from Depeyroux and King Kong. The song is full of energy, with the keyboards repeatedly striking those high notes and the fast paced drumming driving the song.
Following a short intro about how the band started out, the second section takes us back in time to their first performance, in the studio. Playing the songs from the album (including the cover of the original “We Are The Champions”) catches Hunt at his most precise piano moments, as he is able to showcase his amazing talent with the guitar, voice and drums. There’s no doubt that Stevenson has come a long way since his beginnings in the band mentioned above, as he is now ready to fulfill his destiny on stage.
