The orchestra (conducted and led by Julian Chan) will feature both upcoming young musicians in the scene and some of Malaysia’s most established musicians. Together, they will be performing various big band works, ranging from swinging classics of the Duke Ellington Orchestra and Count Basie Orchestra, as well as modern latin jazz arrangements from Michael Mossman and several others.
The Julian Chan Quintet will present small group jazz works from various eras in jazz in the classic two-horns and rhythm section format. The Quintet will also feature two special guests – Malaysia’s godfather of jazz, Michael Veerapen on piano; as well as Malaysia’s real queen of jazz voice, Junji Delfino on vocals.
An Evening Of Jazz will be a fun-filled night of large and small ensemble jazz music brought to you by the Julian Chan Jazz Orchestra, in collaboration with the Damansara Performing Arts Centre.
