Views from Chicheng Precipice. Dennis Rea's adventurous guitar playing blends jazz, rock, experimental, and world music into a unique vocabulary, marked by haunting lyricism, enigmatic textures, agile improvisation, and the raw dynamism of rock. Over the years Dennis has led or been a key contributor to such innovative groups as Moraine, LAND, Iron Kim Style, Zhongyu, Stackpole, Savant, Earthstar, and Identity Crisis.

Views from Chicheng Precipice is a world fusion music live album recording by DENNIS REA released in 2010 on CD, LP/Vinyl and/or cassette. Firstly, Dennis Rea is a member of Moraine and the rest of the quintet all play on this album (plus some other guests), and then in the digipak there are details on each song and where they have been adapted from. This is quite different to anything else I have ever heard, as while Moraine are renowned for their avant-garde jazz this is a different beast altogether. In short, this is music that takes traditional Chinese music as a starting point and goes from there in both structured and improvised forms.

Views from Chicheng Precipice is Rea’s homage to the music of East Asia, a collection of uniquely personalized interpretations of traditional pieces and original Asian-inspired works, performed by some of the Pacific Northwest’s most renowned instrumentalists, including trombone avatar Stuart Dempster and koto master Elizabeth Falconer. Blending striking arrangements of ancient and contemporary themes with sonic experimentation and expansive improvisation, Views from Chicheng Precipice is at once boldly unorthodox in its choice of instrumentation and treatment of traditional musical material,.
