| |
Hi Huneybees,

I'm back to share the second part of  the Day 3 of the inaugural Singapore International Jazz Festival 2014 (Sing Jazz 2014)!

@8:55PM: James Morrison
Many people who are unfamiliar with Jazz might have mistaken the identity of the multi-instrumental Australian jazz musician from the more popular British pop star James Morrison, who share the same name.

I was amazed by how good James Morrison is with the trumpet!
Widely known for his trumpet playing, James (Lloyd) Morrison, also played many instruments such as saxophones, clarinet, flugelhorn, tromboneeuphonium, tuba, double bass, guitar and piano
James Morrison gave the audience a truly brilliant exhibition of classic instrumental jazz at its best!

The multi-instrumental playing Australian showed the audience how good he was in playing and switching between instruments; this time with a trombone

@10:30PM: India Arie
Probably the most recognizable name in the Day 3 of Sing Jazz 2014, India Arie is a Grammy Award-winning American singer-songwriter, musician, and record producer. She has sold over 3.3 million records in the US and 10 million worldwide according to Wikipedia.

India Arie praised the audience for giving her the overwhelming support and hence energy for her performance

Wearing her mother-made white dress, India Arie not only displayed such a strong vocal performance of soul jazz but her confidence as well when she threw her head dress away during a number.

A demonstration of confidence without the head dress!

Overall the evening has been a excellent mixed of Jazz performance and certainly a great introduction to someone, like me, who has little exposure to Jazz music before.
