JAZZNOTE Radio Channel Posted on my Blog!!!

Hi Guys,

I have just posted up JAZZNOTE RADIO Station on my blog. The green radio channel can be found under the column "JAZZNOTE Radio Channel (Presented by JAZZNOTE RECORDS - Singapore & Asia's Jazz Record Label)". Basically its a internet radio channel of the music label "JAZZNOTE RECORDS" by our renowed Singaporean jazz pianist "Jeremy Monteiro".

If u guys don't know about him, then check out his website. Seriously I have deep respect for this man as a music mentor and figure in our local and international music scene when our team had the chance to interview him. He's such a big-hearted man who does his best to help the local upcoming rising musicians and promote local as well as Asian musicians. For example, he helped our local Singaporean young jazz pianist Kerong to get a NAC scholarship to study at Manhattan School of Music in United States.

Give yourself a chance to listen to the channel even if u don't listen to jazz. U will find yourself enchanted into listening to lovely smooth tunes on the channel. If u guys face difficulties in listening to the radio channel, do let me know.

Collaborations are most welcomed for those who are interested in promoting and introducing good Singapore and Asia music to me. Well I do hope to work out some ideas where investors can make profit and provide some income/revenue for musicians at the same time. Just drop an email or add me on facebook.

Here's the music record label for those who are interested to know more: JAZZNOTE RECORDS

KinestAsia Music Event - 18 Sept 09 - 27 Sept 09

"TimbreMusic" Presents KinestAsia Music Event this year in light of Singapore GPSeason. For more details, check out the link below.


I am happy that my friend's band "Gugun and The Blues Shelter" from Indonesia is coming back once again to play in Singapore on 18 Sept 09. In fact it was a surprise for me when Bowie the drummer still remembered and contacted me. Guess that I will be showing them as a host around in Singapore.

Well they changed part of their band's name from "Blues Bug" to "Blues Shelter" as advice from their agent due to some similar band name from Greece when they were on their international music tour. Man I met them back in Singapore Blues Festival 08 and they rocks!!! Pretty cool guys to hang out with. Check out my review on the Singapore Blues Festival 08 here!!!

Below is a video of "Gugun and The Blues Shelter" doing a cover on a song "Superstition" by Stevie Wonder.
