Are you tired of typical Cantopop music, and are you looking for a change? But is it possible to combine Chinese music and jazz music? And how can dance collaborate with jazz?
Presented by the Fringe Club as part of the new “Jazz-Go-Central, Jazz-Go-Fringe” project – Phase II, Jazz + is a series of cross-over performances between jazz and other genres that will happen every month from October 2018 to May 2019.
Touring jazz guitarist Chi-ho Choi hosts the Jazz+ show in April, and joining him will be some of his jazz musician friends. Chi-ho is bringing his re-arrangements of some of the greatest hits of the 80’s and 90’s, ranging from Metallica to Brian McKnight to Jamiroquai. Come and experience these familiar melodies in a whole new way.
Chi-ho Choi (guitar), Haza Chan (vocals), Seynah K. Avlessi (drums), Saiwai Liang (bass), Sit Wai-nok (trumpet), Wesley Cheng (saxophone), Ken Chow (saxophone)
