Jazz quartet will play two for ChristmasJazz pianist Ronn Branton and his crew are planning to spice up the Christmas holidays with some jazz.
Since 2001 Branton has been performing jazz at Christmas. This year the performance will be held tomorrow and on Christmas Eve at the Ewha 100th Memorial Hall in downtown Seoul. Each day there will be two performances, at 4 and 8 p.m.
Klae, a long time partner of Branton, will be playing the saxophone while Tomoaki Yamaguchi and Cho Seong-deuk will be on drums and bass ― it will be their first performance with the jazz pianist. Branton and Klae have been performing together for two decades.
Branton and his crew will be playing traditional Christmas songs such as “Jingle Bells,” and “Winter Wonderland,” as well as carols such as “We Three Kings of Orient Are.” Branton learned piano under the popular pianist Santiago Rodriguez at the University of Maryland and began performing in the Washington D.C. area.
Klae also studied saxophone with Branton at the University of Maryland and has performed mostly at clubs in New York and at jazz festivals. Cho is a member of the Urban Pops Orchestra and has performed at famous jazz clubs in Seoul including Once in a Bluemoon.
