Expect a selection of well-loved jazz standards and originals including the US Jazzweek top 50 hit “Mount Olive,” and an English version of the French tune by Charles Trenet, “I Wish You Love,” performed by the Jazz Association Singapore Orchestra (JASSO) Ensemble led by Jeremy Monteiro, Singapore’s King of Swing and Executive Director & Music Director of the Jazz Association (Singapore), with Louis Soliano, the Godfather of Singapore jazz.
Samy Thiébault Quartet, led by the renowned French saxophonist Samy Thiébault, will showcase Thiébault’s latest release, Awé!, a synthesis of influences from Caribbean stories, Indian inspirations and a forever-renewed Coltranian spirituality.
Join the musicians as they spread good vibes and transform the park into an open dance floor and a melodious picnic ground under the stars!
