Thus I will be producing a series of piano recordings by our local talents in 2010. So far I've approached several pianists in Malaysia. They all showed tremendous interest in this project, and first recording session is scheduled in the first week of 2010! What a great way to start a new decade!
Secondly, I've been working with Chui Ling on this project called JZ 8, for Pop Pop Music. We cover some memorable Chinese pop songs in jazz style. I am happy to announce that we are at the last leg of the recording, and it should be scheduled to be released in Feb 2010. This project has been going on for almost a year, due to both our hectic schedules. Chui Ling is the most sought after back-up vocalist in the international scene, thus she has to fly all over the world to sing back up for many big names in the music scene. The studio that we are recording in wasn't ready and was way past the due date. But finally, we are about to complete the meat of the whole project. Can't wait to hold the CD in my hand!
Thirdly, I became a part of this vocal quartet plus piano trio group called Caipifruta (after a song that I wrote, recorded in our WVC TRiO + 1 album EVELEN). We are still pretty much in the beginning of a relationship, but I am looking forward to write more for this group, as it is another challenge to my ability as a composer and arranger. Gambate!
I'll be damn busy, that's for sure. I guess I need to be busy.
