"What Kind of Love?" ~ Mavis Pan

Dear Friends,

As spring approaches, I am happy to introduce to you the third single “What Kind of Love?” from my new album Set For Love.

This music not only fulfills my childhood dream to be a singer-songwriter
, it also puts the compositional craft that I obtained later in my adulthood in use. During the years of pursuing my master degree in composition, I have studied the string quartet repertoire of Schubert, Ravel and Bartok. With David’s unconventional and poetic lyrics, it is more like setting German lieder in a modern jazz ballad setting, yet with string quartet embellishment.

This lyrical ballad was composed right after a break up about two years ago. Disillusioned by the dream of possibly building a nest with someone, I found myself particularly intrigued by David’s lyrics: “What kind of love can flag a falcon flying high and lure it down to share a nest?” Although this music was birthed in a very painful moment, I have learned that pain is as sacred as joy. Pain is what a woman has left to prove to the world that she has loved. It is the receipt she can hold to prove that she has paid the price of love, regardless of how imperfect her love is.


No matter what kind of turns life has thrown at you, a brutal winter will always be followed by a glorious spring. I am happy to announce that the CD release concert of Set for Love will be held on Saturday, June 1, 2019, at 7:30 pm at Lincoln Center Bruno Walter Auditorium, in live concert with fifteen NYC-based jazz artists. The entrance fee includes a “Set for Love” CD ($20 value) and guests are invited to the after-party at Indie Food & Wine located at 144 W 65th Street. The event following will be a great opportunity to network with top musicians and engineers/producers, and Mavis and David will be happy to sign your CD. Online tickets are available at  Seating is limited, so reserve your tickets early and I would love to see you there.
