Mellow Motif is a familiar name in the Asian jazz scene as they have represented Thailand at many major festivals in the region. And now the members of this vocal jazz and bossa nova group are all set to give what they are billing as the most heart-warming concert of the year, just after Valentine's Day.
Thailand’s very own Mellow Motif are holding a Valentine-friendly romantic concert at Siam Paragon next month.
Scheduled for Feb 17 at Siam Paragon's Siam Pavalai Royal Grand Theatre, the "Mellow Motif Plays Jazz for Lovers" will present new arrangements of timeless love songs from the Great American Songbook. Local jazz lovers in Bangkok are in for a treat because the concert will also feature a great line-up of guest musicians from overseas including Yuki Makita, a jazz pianist with a sweet touch and personality from Tokyo; Richard Jackson, an American jazz vocalist with a deep and soulful voice; and the man who is possibly Thailand's most loved saxophone player _ Koh Mr Saxman.
Together with their guests, Mellow Motif will perform all-new renditions of love songs from great US composers such as Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers, Harold Arlen and George Gershwin.
Since the release of their highly successful self-titled debut album in 2009, Mellow Motif has been actively performing in many countries and steadily gaining popularity on the regional jazz scene. Performing inspirational, light-hearted arrangements of jazz standards and Brazilian music as well as original compositions, the group has captured the hearts of both jazz aficionados and mainstream listeners at home and abroad.
The band currently comprises Natasha on vocals, Eugene on piano, O+ on acoustic bass, Hong on drums, Andrew on flugelhorn/trumpet and Ngaw on guitar.
The concert begins at 7pm on Feb 17. Tickets cost 800, 1,000, 1,500 and 1,800 baht and can be purchased from Thai Ticket Major booths (tel 02-262-3456 or visit the website www.thaiticketmajor.com).
