Jasmine Jazz is an unusual interplay between traditional Chinese and jazz instruments, featuring the Vancouver Chinese Music Ensemble and some of Vancouver’s finest jazz artists led by Juno-nominated bassist and composer, Jodi Proznick. As a special treat, TEALEAVES will offer tastings of the highest quality jasmine teas, scented using the Imperial Scenting Method, before and during the concert. The natural aroma of jasmine blossoms, with the musical blend of jazz and Chinese instruments will create a sweet summer night!
Jasmine Jazz brings Chinese instrumentalists Jirong Huang (erhu), Sarah Yusha Tan (guzheng) and Zhongxi Wu (suona) together with Jodi Proznick (bass), Bill Coon (guitar) and James Danderfer (clarinet/sax) for a unique musical experience. Jazz will be interpreted through traditional Chinese instruments; traditional and contemporary Chinese music will be given a new life through jazz.
Jasmine Jazz is presented by Vancouver Chinese Instrumental Music Society and Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden
