The Asian Jazz AllStars Power Quartet
Singapore, Hongkong, Philippines, Thailand
Big names of the Asian jazz circle get together to perform an eclectic selection of old and new standards.
The band comprises of :-
- Jeremy Monteiro – Singapore’s own ‘King of Swing’ jazz pianist. www.jeremymonteiro.com
- Eugene Pao, Asia’s top jazz guitarist from Hong Kong and the first Hong Kong jazz artist to sign with an international label. www.myspace.com/eugenepao
- Tots Tolentino, saxophone extraordinaire from Philippines;
- Hong Chanutr Techatana-nan, one of the most innovative and exciting drummers to emerge in the Asian jazz scene, from Thailand. http://www.myspace.com/hongdrums
When you put four of Asia’s top jazzmen on the same stage you can expect nothing less than an extraordinary power-packed performance.
The Asian Jazz All-Stars Power Quartet is the coming together of Jeremy Monteiro, one of Asia’s most prolific jazz keyboardist & composers from Singapore; Eugene Pao, arguably Asia’s top jazz guitarist from Hong Kong; Tots Tolentino, one of Asia’s most virtuosic saxophonists from the Phillipines; and Chanutr Techatana-nan (aka Hong) from Thailand, one of the most innovative and exciting drummers to emerge in the Asian jazz scene in recent years.
Eugene’s stratospheric guitar lines & power riffs; Jeremy’s synthesis of bluesy organ licks coupled with Ravel-esque harmonies; Tots’ kaleidoscopic sound shapes & melodic tapestries; plus Hong’s groovy swing juxtaposed with his innovative polyrhythmic embellishments will stimulate you intellectually and warm your hearts at the same time.
They will play an eclectic selection of old and new standards, well spiced with their own original compositions.
