    Jezrael Lucero, Piano – The Philippines

     

    Perfect pitch is just one of the many remarkable things about Lucero. According to his dad – who passed away a few years back – the musician was singing Sinatra’s Strangers in the Night at the age of 13 months; he was playing classical concertos on the piano at two; and he’s been gigging at hotels and appearing on TV shows since he was four. As well as being a tremendously gifted jazz pianist, whose fingers can prance like praying mantises or scramble like frenzied locusts on a keyboard, he’s a singer, arranger, drummer, bass-player, and guitarist; plus he’ll kick your assin NBA Live on the PlayStation.

    One more thing – he has been utterly blind since his premature birth on May 1, 1985.

    But he doesn’t see that as a handicap. “No!” he replies immediately at the suggestion. “No, never.”
    “I would think blindness, it will help you develop your inner strength, which is the most important thing in your life as you grow up.”

    Lucero calls it a gift, but it’s one that didn’t come easy. His father – “a real bad-assed teacher” – subjected the musician to smacks and cigarette burns from a young age as he honed his skill. “Most of the time he turned himself into a master, not a father,” says Lucero.

    Despite some resentment, however, Lucero says he owes his success to his dad and God. “As you grow old, you understand that everything your father did for you is so you can be tough and live in this real world. It’s not a world of happiness and pleasure all the time.” Even when speaking of difficult subjects, the smile never fades from his face.

    These days in Hong Kong, which has been his home for three years, Lucero dazzles Sunday afternoon guests in the lobby at the Four Seasons in Central, before heading over to the Martini Bar at Tsim Sha Tsui’s Royal Garden Hotel. He can often be found jamming at Peel Fresco after hours on Sundays, and he’s currently working on a project rearranging music from Duke Ellington with hip-hop beats.

    “Disability is a disability if you think of it,” he says with characteristic defiance, adding that he doesn’t like the ‘I cannot do it’ attitude. “I really like adventure. I like to do things that everybody doesn’t think I can.”

     

    Born to a musical family in India, Anthony Fernandes started a professional career at anearly age of 14. Moved to L.A, California in 1991 to study at the then Prestigious "DickGrove School Of Music". Moved to HK and teamed up with Asia's premiere guitaristEugene Pao at HK "Jazz Club" where he backed up numerous International renown artists.Besides, he has worked and recorded with over 100 Cantopop and Mandopop artist andrecorded over 800 albums till date.

    由意大利鋼琴手及台灣歌手余宛芸,去年在台相遇後的共同理念而催生,望能把兩地的民俗及傳統樂曲,以當代爵士樂的手法重新編寫,成為一些脱穎而出雅俗共賞的音樂。

     

    The project was formed in 2014 after Pasquale Stafano’s meeting Naomi Yu in Taipei.  The group’s materials are inspired mainly by the seductive Chinese and Italian folklore and traditional music.

     

    Pasquale Stafano在意大利福查(Foggia)音樂學院修讀鋼琴,因對爵士樂的響往而再進修爵士樂專修課程,師承芝加哥鋼琴手Brandon McCune。經常在國內外參加比賽而屢次獲獎。

     

    Pasquale Stafano, pianist, composer and arranger was awarded the Piano Academic Degree at "U. Giordano" Music Conservatory of Foggia (Italy) in 1994 and the Jazz Academic Degree at “U. Giordano” Music Conservatory in 2000. Following his passion for jazz music, he attended the "Specialization Jazz Course” “CPM” Siena Jazz” held by the pianist Mauro Grossi and "Pescara Jazz Master Class” held by the pianist and composer Brandon McCune, teacher of Columbia Jazz College of Chicago in 1999.  He participated at several national and international competitions, of contemporary and jazz music, achieving first prizes. He collaborated and collaborates currently with important and famous jazz musicians like: Javier Girotto, Gabriele Mirabassi, Fabrizio Bosso, Max Ionata, Gustavo Toker, Michele Rabbia, Daniel Humair, and others.

     

    Beyond his jazz studies, he has a passion for the south America music, in particular for the argentinian tango music and founded the trio "Nuevo Tango Ensamble" in 1999. With this project he performs all around the world in prestigious theaters, Festivals and Jazz Clubs in Rome, Turin, Paris, Vienna, Warsaw, Seoul and Taipei and many others.    

     

    He has released CDs like "Astor's Mood", "A night in Vienna for Astor Piazzolla", “D’impulso” and others recording with Gabriele Mirabassi, Javier Girotto and others.  In December 2014 he arranged two composition and recorded it with Nuevo Tango Ensamble for Korean Movie “Chronicle of a blood merchant”.   He participated in several national and international competitions, of contemporary, chamber music and jazz music, achieving first prizes every time.  He is also a lecturer in piano jazz and classical, composition and arrangement in several Public and Private High Schools.

     

    在台北出生的余芸自幼便在教堂聖詩班內歌唱繼而愛上了福音樂曲。但自幼年時在電影插曲中接觸了爵士樂後便追隨至今。雖然在大學時是修讀語言系,但由於對音樂的熱衷令她不停地搜尋各類型爵士樂來聆聽,及在27歲時成為了職業歌手。

     

    Born in Taipei, Naomi sang in church choir where she was immersed in gospel music. After hearing jazz in the movie soundtracks, she began to develop an appreciation for it at an early age. She studied Applied English at Southern Taiwan University of Technology in Taiwan and studied French at CIDEF of UCO (Université Catholique de l'Ouest) in France. Her curiosity and love for music led her to explore the abundance of Jazz recordings and she started singing professionally at age 27. Since then she has been performing at many functions and events, and currently participates in various projects, with many talented musicians in Taiwan and from aboard.

    由格林美奬得主Poncho Sanchez和五個格林美奬得主Terence Blanchard破天荒首次合作的項目,Cubano Be Cubano Bop,是個企圖重寫歷史的大膽嘗試。在Poncho Sanchez 的拉丁爵士大樂隊伴隨下,兩位爵士樂壇上的重量級大師,將會重塑1947年Be Bop創發者之一的Dizzy Gillespie和古巴敲擊手Chano Pozo的歷史性一刻,拉丁爵士樂的降世經典。節目内的樂曲均全為重新編寫,亦將會成為劃時代的拉丁爵士金曲,大家齊來見證。

     

    Terence Blanchard八十年代出道,先在Lionel Hampton大樂隊中進修,其後加入了Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers,大學堂練成正身。雖為Hard Bop道上的大將,但其濃厚的非洲根源風格令他在同輩小號手中鶴立雞羣,成多爵士音樂史上重要的殿堂人物。曾编寫及灌錄的電影配樂超過半百以上,為金像導演Spike Lee的御用配樂師。二千年開始當上Thelonius Monk Institude of Jazz的藝術總監。多次成為格林美樂提名及先後五次奪奬。

     

    Poncho  Sanchez在1951年出生,以敲擊剛加鼓和演唱Salsa樂曲音譽全球。在其偶像Cal Tjader大力推薦下和Concord唱片公司簽约,先後共發行了廾張作品,二千年憑作品《Latin Soul》赢得格林美「最佳拉丁爵士樂大奬」。2005作品《Do It》更跨界地與金牌放克組合Tower of Power,及南非小號大師Hugh Masekela等合作,被譽為美國當代最出色的敲擊樂手,絕非跨奬之事。

    Rusconi 於2006年在蘇黎世的Jazznojazz爵士音樂節上演奏其第二張大碟《Stop & Go》中的作品而一鳴驚人; 即被譽為是年歐洲爵士音樂節中的重大「新發現」。

     

    Rusconi 擅長鋼琴,以節拍優雅、攝人的琴音而受到捧戴。他們年輕、清新、有風格、有創意,是渴求革命的爵士樂民的救世主。

     

    新大碟《It's a Sonic Youth》中的音樂,是受到獨立搖滾樂隊Sonic Youth所啓示而創作,可說是一個大膽越界而成功的例子。Rusconi被歐洲傳媒般譽為EST(Esbjörn Svensson Trio)的接班人。去年來港演出後極受好評,回歐洲後在德國捲了個Echo Music Award大奬後,今年再重返香港國際爵士音樂節,萬勿錯過。

    “simakDialog has real energy and chops and should go very far. Their music proved simakDialog to already be an exceptional group.” - Gary Gomes, All About Jazz

     

    Keyboardist/composer Riza Arshad formed simakDialog in 1993. simakDialog is crossover of a melting pod between western jazz/rock/psychedelia and Javanese/Indonesian exotic rhythm riffs.  Arshad's keyboards and writing are phenomenal: frequently reminding listeners of some towering progressive jazz pillars, such as Weather Report, Pat Metheny Group and early incarnations of Chick Corea's Return To Forever.  That said, what distinguishes simakDialog from mere fusion jazz groups is the presence of Indonesian percussionist Endang Ramdan playing traditional Indonesian instruments and the group’s seamless integration of traditional classical Indonesian forms to fusion jazz. 

    The band has performed extensively in Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Nepal and Germany.

     

    simakDialog 由身兼作曲及樂隊領班的 Riza 在 1993 年組成。在多民族多元化的國度內,創作的塑材自然離不了歷史悠久,印尼獨有的傳統'甘馬蘭'音樂。從強烈宗教味道的遠古廟宇音樂,到上世紀的搖滾及迷幻,simakDialog 的音樂就把西方的古典/爵士/搖滾,和爪哇/印尼風情瑰異的節奏及短句融匯一爐,別樹一幟。出版了四張唱片,分別以最佳爵士樂唱片和最佳爵士樂唱片監制兩大獎。2007 年,唱片 Patahan 在 Moonjune 唱片公司旗下於世界各地發行,得到樂評人大力推崇。
