The KL Music Festival (1 - 5 July)

Hey all,

Sorry for the lack of updates of late. But here's one nice big show you wouldn't want to miss:


I won't write much about it, all you have to do is click on the picture to go to the website that has that information (courtesy of All Dat Jazz!).

But I'll be playing in this festival that will be held at Istana Budaya, with the David Gomes Sextet.

For the first time, you'll be hearing David Gomes' music... yes, ORIGINAL music! Get ready for some explosive Malaysian-made jazz from KL's foremost premier pianist (and vocalist as well)!! He'll be backed by some of Malaysia's veteran musicians and a few young upstarts in the music industry:

The David Gomes Sextet are:

David Gomes - piano
Julian Chan - alto saxophone
Thomas Theseira - tenor saxophone
Eddie Wen - trumpet/flugelhorn
Charles Wong - drums
Vincent Ong - double bass
