Jesse Cook LIVE in Singapore

Source: Publicity Ink

Jesse Cook, a virtuoso guitarist whose expressive rumba flamenco arrangements fuse the world’s cultures and traditions into a signature musical style, will perform live in Singapore from 12 - 15 October 2003 at Bar and Billiard Room, Raffles Hotel from 8.00pm.

His unique brand of music, coupled with fiery performances and his eagerness to embrace a variety of different musical cultures has mesmerised audiences.

Four albums into his successful and accomplished recording career, Cook’s passion for guitar shows no sign of waning with his latest eclectic album, Nomad, an apt title for his latest album which was created in exotic locations around the world.

In 1995, his rumba flamenco compositions were featured on the TV Guide Channel, introducing them to nearly three million Canadian Viewers and generating an overwhelming demand for the music that culminated in his first album, TEMPEST.
The album was independently released in Canada to great public and critical acclaim. Snapped up for a international record deal with Narada, TEMPEST was released in the U.S where it debuted on Billboard's World Music at no.14 and remained on the chart for almost a year. Fans and reviewers continued to be blown away by his Jesse's live shows, and he was proclaimed one of the four-standout artists of the 1996 Montreal Jazz Festival lineup.

Jesse's music has been featured on screens around the world in the popular HBO series Sex And The City, as well as in the 2000 Sydney and 1996 Nagano Olympic Games.

He has twice toured with Irish superstars The Chieftains (inviting praise from both the New York Times and The Washington Post), and collaborated with a variety of artists including vocal prodigy Charlotte Church, jazz diva Holly Cole, cellist Ofra Harnoy, accordian legend Stanley "Buckwheat" Dural Jnr and veteran bass player Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel, Paul Simon, John Lennon). 

Tickets are available at $59 with one complimentary Tiger Beer per person. Standard Chartered Credit card members are entitled to tickets at $39 each. Please call M2 hotline number 6725 9923/24 or email concerts@m2us.co
