SHOWTIME PRODUCTIONS & EFG BANK PROUDLY PRESENT

VERVE Music Group Recording Artists Jeremy Monteiro & Alberto Marsico - The Jazz-Blues Brothers
Also featuring Guest Vocalist Rani Singam

This Band brings together one of the best known Asia-based international jazz pianists Jeremy Monteiro and one of the most bluesey and soulful Hammond-style organist in Europe and beyond Alberto Marsico. It features stellar musicians Eugene Pao, arguably Asia's finest guitarists, the very soulful saxophonist Shawn Letts and the great jazz/soul drummer Shawn Kelley. 

The show will feature funky, swinging, bluesey tunes from their upcoming album "Jeremy Monteiro & Alberto Marsico - The Jazz Blues Brothers".

Jeremy Monteiro (Pianist, Co-Leader) comes from Singapore and is one of the best-known jazz pianists in South-East Asia. He has played with many jazz greats like James Moody and Toots Thielemans and continues to perform regularly with two-time Grammy Award winning saxophonist Ernie Watts who he has collaborated with since 1987. 

A highlight of his career was when he was asked to play keyboards for Simon & Garfunkel for their concert in Singapore in 1992 in front of an audience of 7,000 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

In 1988, he performed a landmark concert with his band Monteiro, Young & Holt on the mainstage of the Montreux Jazz Festival on a show that included Chick Corea, The Yellow Jackets, Crowded House and Mongo Santa Maria. Montreux Jazz Founder Claude Nobs hailed the concert as “one of the best shows of the first 22 years of Montreux”.

================================================

Alberto Marsico (Organist, Co-Leader) hails from Turin in Italy is one of the most sought after jazz and blues organists in Europe. Legendary Hammond organists Jack McDuff, once told Alberto after recording his composition Jack-Pot, “Alberto, you’ve got Hammond blood!”

Joey DeFrancesco, recognized as the most well-known jazz organists today has this to say about Alberto, The gentleman that you are listening to here on this particular recording is one of my very favorite organists.
Alberto Marsico is a fantastic jazz organist, but here (on the album Soundsville – Blues For Alice In Wonderland) you hear him in another element, a rockish, bluesy kind of stuff, which I love a lot, and I've never heard anybody do it better than Alberto.”

The legendary American bassist Jimmy Woody had this to say about Alberto, “As if he invented the genre, Alberto Marsico, with Jack Mc Duff's and Jimmy Smith's intimations, reminds us how the blues should be played and digested...”

Most recently, Alberto has played on and co-produced the album “Purple” by famed Italian trumpeter Fabrizio Bosso. The album appears on the Verve imprint.

================================================== 

Also in the band are, Eugene Pao who is arguably Asia’s top, jazz, blues and rock guitarists who has performed with everyone from Jimmy Witherspoon to Michael Brecker; Shawn Letts on Saxophone a prolific composer himself and elder brother of Purlitzer Prize and Tony-Award winning actor/writer Tracy Letts; and Bangkok-based American drummer Shawn Kelley who has performed with the likes of Ernie Watts, James Moody and Toots Thielemans. 

The show will also feature guest vocalist Rani Singam, one of Singapore's most prominent and soulful jazz singers.

The repertoire will be from their upcoming new CD, "The Jazz-Blues Brothers" which is a funky, soulful, bluesey Jazz album.
