Eugene Pao - Strike a Chord

Description

STRIKE A CHORD

Those who speak “jazz” are familiar with Hong Kong’s guitar hero Eugene Pao, who has been a trailblazer for jazz in the city since the mid-1980s. He has toured the world to place Hong Kong on the global jazz map.

On 7 January 2014 from 9:00 pm to 11:00 pm, Pao will mesmerise the audience with his guitar wizardry at Salon de Ning, the lounge named after Shanghai’s most celebrated socialite and bonne vivante of the 1930s. Pao’s father shares the same origins as Madame Ning. One of Pao’s earliest childhood memories was waking up to his father’s musical improvisations on the violin to accompany classical records.

Exposed to a wide spectrum of musical genres while growing up, Pao developed a passion for jazz. The complexity of its harmonies and endless possibilities for chord improvisations fascinated Pao and drove him to create engaging pieces that deliver powerful stories.

A combination of a private lounge and an elegant bar, Salon de Ning blends East and West with its soft furnishings and interesting accents from the past. The club welcomes the change of season with a fresh line-up of soul, jazz and rhythm and blues performances.

To book your seats for an evening of live performances by Hong Kong’s jazz authority and his band at Salon de Ning, please call +852 2696 6705 or e-mail salondeningphk@peninsula.com.

樂動心絃

在樂迷心目中,香港爵士樂結他手包以正的名字如雷貫耳,後者自八十年代中期起在香港積極推動爵士樂,並曾於世界各地巡迴演出,令香港在國際爵士樂版圖佔一席位。

半 島酒店邀請到包以正於2014年1月7日晚上9時至晚上11時於玲瓏酒廊獻藝,相信其結他弦韻定可迷倒顧曲周郎。玲瓏酒廊以三十年代上海名媛玲瓏女士的動 人逸事為設計主題;包以正的父親也是來自上海,同樣鍾情於音樂。包以正記得兒時其父最愛一邊聽古典音樂唱片一邊即興拉起小提琴來,自己也常被父親的琴音吵 醒。

包以正成長期間接觸到不同類型的音樂,但偏偏對爵士樂情有獨鍾。爵士樂結構複雜而和諧,和弦變化萬千,講求即興演奏,這些特色令包以正為之著迷,並啟發他創作出充滿感染力的樂章。

玲瓏酒廊集私人會所與優雅酒吧的氣氛於一身,設計裝潢糅合東西方文化及韻味,精緻陳設與昔日懷舊味道擺設營造動人格調。玲瓏酒廊每季現場表演推陳出新,呈獻悅耳的騷靈、爵士樂及節奏藍調等娛賓。
