Jazz focused on improvisation, and based on the swing characteristics of the Shuffle rhythm. Because of its nature, the essence of jazz-soul has penetrated every corner of the world. The jazz scene in Malaysia has been thriving over the past few decades. Even though different lifestyles, cultures and the environment may separate us, the spirit of jazz has always been to communicate, understand and respect each other. This set of jazz ancestry from American jazz mixed with Malaysian characteristics will be a spectacular creation.
The main contributor to the concert is Malaysia’s very own well-known international jazz pianist –Tay Cher Siang. In June 2017, during his participation in the WVU Piano Festival in West Virginia, Tay met Dr. Jared Sims, who made a profound impression on him. After his second performance, Tay was very impressed with Dr. Jared Sim’s skills, his voice and strong musical traits. Won’t you regret it if you see the beauty of the world all alone and not share it with anyone? At that moment, he decided to invite Dr. Jared Sims to Malaysia.
With the knowledge that Dr. Jared Sims will be attending the Saxophone Symposium in Bangkok, Tay invited him to perform in Malaysia. As far as he is concerned, jazz is based on communication and spontaneity, so it is more difficult to find and schedule suitable locations and dates than to arrange tracks.
“WVC featuring Jared Sims – A Jazz Concert” performed by WVC Malaysian Jazz Ensemble, a leading Malaysian Jazz group and co-presented by Dr Jared Sims, a world renowned jazz saxophonist from the United States, will be held on 17th and 18th January 2018 at Damansara Performing Arts Centre (DPAC).
