Jeremy Monteiro: The Art Of Trio

Jazz veteran Jeremy Monteiro will play a show together with fellow Singaporean musicians, drummer Soh Wen Ming and bassist Ben Poh. The eclectic repertoire will include jazz standards, samba, blues and original music.

Monteiro has played in many configurations throughout his career - from solo gigs to performances with orchestras - but he has said that his favourite format is always the jazz trio.

Earlier this year, his trio album, Live At No Black Tie, released together with Jay Anderson and Lewis Nash, spent 10 weeks in the Top 50 of the United States JazzWeek charts.
