Free Jazz CD Concerts feature European sounds this weekend

*********************************************************



The public is invited to enjoy two Jazz CD Concerts this Saturday (July 12) at Kwai Tsing Theater Auditorium and Sunday (July 13) at Tsuen Wan Town Hall Exhibition Gallery. Both concerts take place from 3pm to 5pm and admission is free.

Organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, the "Come Rain Come Shine" Jazz CD Concerts aim at promoting appreciation of jazz music by playing a selection of the best Euro-Jazz from Scandinavia, France, Italy, Poland and elsewhere.

It is safe to say that American jazz is still the most popular form of this kind of music in Hong Kong. But concert appearances in recent years by stars such as Tango Orkestret of Denmark, Ulf Wakenius of Sweden, Laura Fygi of Holland and Silje Nergaard of Norway have stirred strong local interest in European jazz. Whether you're already a confirmed lover of jazz or just hoping to gain some insight into the music, these gatherings are not to be missed.

Your host and guide for both concerts will be Mr Clarence Chang, a music producer with over 20 years of experience and a strong passion for jazz.

He will explain what makes Euro-Jazz unique and illustrate his comments with selections from CDs.

Among the music to be heard will be Enrico Rava's "La Dolce Vita", Louis Winsberg's "Camino", Ulf Wakenius's "Enchanted Moment", and Lars Moller's "Colours".

For enquiries, call 2149 5872 or 2414 0144.
