In his return to No Black Tie, Jeremy Monteiro assembles a very special trio of musicians he often plays with separately.
On bass is Rudi Engel who has played Jeremy’s last 8 album projects which were recorded in Germany. Rudi has also appeared with Jeremy on numerous live shows in Germany and Switzerland, most notably at the oldest jazz club in Germany, the Jazzkeller in Frankfurt. Rudi is also a member of the Ernie Watts Quartet.
On drums is one of the fastest rising jazz stars in our region, the young and talented drummer Aaron James Lee. In January, Aaron travelled with Jeremy and the Jazz Association Singapore Orchestra (JASSO) to play at the Jazz Education Network Conference to perform as the President’s choice at the 2019 JEN Conference.
The trio is helmed by one of the top jazz pianists in Asia, Jeremy Monteiro who is in his 43rd year as a professional musician. He has performed with a wide range of jazz musicians from James Moody to Simon & Garfunkel.
Together they will play a selection of jazz standards and original compositions.
