Esplanade Presents Jazz in July+Double Bill: Tim Stocker Quartet & The Wei! Experiment
28 Jul 2019, 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Join the Tim Stocker Quartet and The Wei! Experiment as they co-feature in their first-ever double bill.
The Tim Stocker Quartet, featuring Andrew Lim, Chok Kerong and Soh Wen Ming, offers the rare opportunity of experiencing a baritone saxophone as a lead instrument, as Stocker brings the horn out from the depths. They present a set of original music taken off Stocker’s album The View From Here, recorded in New York City in 2015, a commentary of his experiences growing up amongst the natural beauty, wide open spaces and dangerous wildlife of Australia.
The Wei! Experiment is the brainchild Weixiang, one of the lions of the Singapore jazz scene. This performances sees him presenting, together with Andrew Lim, Aaron Lee, Ben Poh and Sean Hong, the two-movement jazz suite Wei! Siang? Composed specially for this double bill performance. The suite takes melodic and harmonic cues from the nursery rhyme 《两个小娃娃正在打电话》, which is interpreted in interesting and often humorous ways.
