Here’s a jazz rendition of 贺新年 (he xin nian/ Welcome The New Year) by Jeremy Monteiro. It may also come as a welcome relief to some of us who have heard one too many traditional CNY tunes!

Jazz is restless. It won’t stay put and it never will
-Trombonist J.J. Johnson
Organised and financed by Orbis Festival Productions Pte Ltd, supported by two world-class partners from the leisure and entertainment industries, the Marina Bay Sands and Java Jazz, the inaugural Singapore International Jazz Festival, ‘SING JAZZ’, will be held over 4 four days from 5 – 8 March 2015.Drawn to what is being seen increasingly as a global hub of art and culture, Singapore’s SING JAZZ 2015 will feature some of the biggest names in world jazz as well as emerging talents – international, regional and, of course, Singaporean.Although a ‘jazz festival’ at its core, SING JAZZ 2015 embraces the capricious, ‘restless’ nature of jazz and its influence across other genres of music. As such, the Festival should appeal to music lovers of all kinds and of all generations. One thing is for sure, its wonderful artists and stunning Marina Bay Sands venues are guaranteed to establish SING JAZZ as a landmark addition to Singapore’s cultural calendar.There is an important social and development element to SING JAZZ, part of the proceeds from the Festival will go towards supporting the Foundation for Arts and Social Enterprise in providing funding to help nurture and promote nascent local jazz talent through a Jazz Academy. Such artists will, in turn, be expected to help nurture the younger generation of musicians in a creative ‘circle of help’.
