Review of the album “Wind of lunacy”
In this album, which falls under the category experimental jazz, Li Tieqiao fully explores the potential which lies with in the saxophone (including with and without the mouthpiece), as well as a number of effect boxes, and he successfully pushes all of them to their outermost limits. If the first track “Wind of Lunacy” is like a suicide note or a perhaps like a war signal, a call for an attach, then the last track on the album, “Ping Pong”, is like a fantasy montage. Li Tieqiao uses his saxophone to simulate scratch noise effects and other effects used by ferocious electronic musicians such as Oval. Later on he turns this track into a blissful and intelligent expression. It is not only Li Tieqiao who have been taken by surprise by this crazy Ping Pong Kingdom, the Italian artist Armin Linke have recently been thinking about making a video concerning Ping Pong. In this video a ping pong champion is like a like a fast turning machine, an hypnotic instrument trapped in this ping pong country, And this saxophonist can also call himself a ping pong player, crazy and gracious. He throws himself into the ocean of noise, and this album becomes a ship in the huge ocean of noise. —-Zhang Shaozhuo “The Bund Magazine”

Tieqiao Li's new CD 《 Lunatic of wind 》Will be come at Aug of 2008.
About this CD, He said:
This album is the result of two-years of pondering. The music registers my two-year sojourn in Scandinavia, becoming fixed after many performances in Europe and China. For me it is the regeneration of an oriental thinking which has now become pervasive in the world.
"Lunatic of wind " describes my feelings after I came back to China in September 2007- all the craziness is carried out in harmony.
"Black Woods" is my softest curse on the numerous crimes we have committed against nature.
"The Sound of Rain in Sickness" is my memory of the South in poor heath: childhood, sickbed, monotonous pitter-patter on the leaves…… It's a song for my mother who died young.
"Yuan Ming Yuan" - where I used to live - remembers some romantic and crazy times in my youth..
"Ping-pong" doesn't need explanation: everybody knows I'm Chinese.
Freedom has become the cheapest placebo in our time, when everybody is professing to pursue freedom. Here, I embrace all the friends who have gone crazy for freedom with this album "Lunatic of wind ".
