GREG LYONS BRAND NEW QUINTET
This new group reunites British saxophone guru Greg Lyons with a long-term collaborator and sideman in the form of the legendary Malaysian bassist Andy Peterson. Adriane Palikat on drums, who spent a good part of her youth under the musical direction of Greg, brings a solid assurance with plenty of contemporary nuance to the group’s sound. Ee Jeng Hin is already a well-known keyboardist and composer having grown in some fine KL ensembles over the past decade, while guitarist Hor Chee Seng is rapidly making a name for himself as a sophisticated soloist, and a representative of the latest trends in electric jazz guitar.
This performance will mark the debut of this group on the Kuala Lumpur stage. They will showcase a largely original repertoire representing some of the more familiar as well as recent compositions, with a peppering of tasty offerings from the global jazz scene. As always with Lyons’ performances, it’s an event aimed to uplift the spirit. Expect to be presented with some great tunes, with lively and impassioned delivery by some fiercely musical characters. Not to be missed!
