[LCSD Edutainment Channel] Jazz Composers' Lab is online!

An online jazz programme, "Jazz Composers’ Lab", featuring jazz guitarist, composer and producer Alan Kwan, has been launched. In eight episodes, Alan has invited four local jazz musicians, namely Lui Ngao-yuen, Sharon Lui, Victor Chu and Ted Lo, to share their original compositions. Kwan will also introduce different jazz styles and approaches to appreciating music. Episode 1: Milky WayWhen Miles Davis, renowned American jazz trumpeter, formed The Second Great Quintet, he made extensive use of non-functional harmony in his compositions, reducing the need for orderly frameworks and allowing his personal style to shine through. The works of local jazz double bassist and composer Lui Ngao-yuen also share similar elements. His "Milky Way" was conceptualised from his experience with the starry sky.Host/ Guitar: Alan KwanGuest/ Double Bass: Lui Ngao YuenSaxophone: Scott MurphyDrums: Dean Li
