Programme to be announced
The Costa Modern Jazz Group is a non-profit arts association established in 2010, whose aim is to promote jazz music in the territory and provide opportunities for local musicians. Since its founding, the group has performed in local festivals and events and has taken part in various music activities in the region.
The Macau Youth Symphonic Band – Jazz Band was founded in 1996 by the Macau Band Directors’ Association to provide training and experience to local young musicians and students. The band has performed in several local events and in Mainland China and Taiwan.
The Bridge is a veteran Macao jazz group founded in the mid-80s by jazz lovers and musicians of various nationalities, to develop an appreciation for this genre in Macao. Starting out as the resident band at the Macao Jazz Club, the Bridge have been bringing local stages to life ever since.
Fried Neuronium is the most recent project by Zé Eduardo, one of the most prominent names in Portuguese jazz since his founding of the Hot Club Jazz School in 1979. Zé Eduardo is responsible for spreading and promoting jazz all over Portugal, through his creation and direction of several schools and orchestras and his active participation in music associations. Fried Neuronium's original music explores the individual capacities of every member, resulting in a fresh and unpredictable blend of moods, grooves and musical paths that range from the mainstream to the adventurous.
In this concert, local jazz bands are first on stage, followed by the Portuguese band Fried Neuronium, led by the group’s founder, jazz legend Zé Eduardo. Then, bringing the evening to a rousing close is a first-ever joint performance by all the groups, in big band format.
