The Bds Jazztet

During the course of a stint at the Four Seasons Hotel between 1994 to 2001 and at the height of our popularity at the Sunday jAZZ Brunch (which we pioneered) we decided to record and release and album of the music we performed as well as some of my originals.
The recording included guests Wendy Low on flute, Faried Ali on Guitar, as well as our regular rhythm section made up of Sanip Ismail on Drums, Victor Gaskin (USA) on Double Bass and of course myself on Piano. We recorded 7 songs from some of our favourite jazz composers like Miles Davis, Thelonius Monk, John Coltrane, Antonio C. Jobim and the like plus a few of my original songs. The release saw it garner a good following with a great review in the SG Straits Times by notable jazz afficionado and well respected writer Whang Shang Yin. Although we did not record another album with the same personnel we continued to record with a variety of musicians on other projects afterwards.
