The lineup for this performance consists entirely of the finest jazz musicians currently residing in Shanghai. Lawrence Ku, the captain and guitarist of China's renowned fusion band “The Red Groove Project”, joins Alec as an old friend who has been part of Alec's popular band, Friction Five, for many years. Their reunion promises to bring about even more novel collisions and frictions. Sunny Yang, an enthusiastic and creative self-expressionist, is the ideal keyboardist for this ensemble. Young drummer Yu Guojun fearlessly explores the combination of rhythm and energy. Hailing from Ghana in West Africa, the exceptional electric bassist Francis Akwasi Amuako-Manu brings a unique cultural background, injecting fresh elements into Alec's music. Advance Tickets are 180rmb; on-site tickets are 220rmb. 8 pm.
