Jazz pianist Helen Sung has performed with the Mingus Big Band, recorded and toured with Meg Okura and the Pan Asian Chamber Jazz Ensemble. And now, she's releasing, Anthem For A New Day, her sixth album as a bandleader in her own right -- and one that continues her path of melding her refined classical background with dynamic jazz arrangements. Sung has called this record a "leap forward," and the outcome of years of experimenting and honing her ideas, she says she's finally come to her musical identity. 

Hear Helen Sung and her band perform selections from the stellar new album in the Soundcheck studio.
