Presented by the Fringe Club as one of the programmes of the “Jazz-Go-Central, Jazz-Go-Fringe” project, Jazz Workshop is the training programme of the Jazz Youth Internship Scheme Phase II. The workshop will be opened to the public as well.
This second workshop in the series will be hosted by Hong Kong Jazz Grandmaster Ted Lo. As a working musician and student for over four decades, Ted has learned that music can be played and expressed from the heart, very much like a spoken language. He’ll share insights he has gained throughout his career pursuing music and practising jazz improvisation. Also, Ted and bassist Wong Tak-chung will give a live demonstration of jazz improvisation.
After graduating from the Berklee College of Music, Ted Lo began his musical journey as a freelance pianist in the Boston area during the 1970s. In 1979 he moved to New York City, where his career included stints as a member of “Herbie Mann and The Family of Mann” and the Ron Carter Quartet. By the end of the 80s he had performed and recorded with an impressive list of jazz artists, including Astrid Gilberto, Dave Valentine, Joe Lovano, and Airto Moreira & Flora Purim.
Lo returned to his homeland, Hong Kong, in 1996 to pursue a diverse career as a musician, composer, music director, arranger and producer. He has worked with many local artists including George Lam, Eason Chan, Jacky Cheung and Justin Lo, and continues to work with local musicians such as Eugene Pao, contributing to the promotion of jazz in Asia.
