The Ah-Q Jazz Arkestra plays at various venues around town.
The Ah-Q Jazz Arkestra performs an eclectic mix of straight-ahead, modern, funk and Latin jazz compositions, including many Ah-Q originals. Mixing different styles and influences and “stretching” in creative improvisation to “dance on the edge” is the band’s trademark.
The Ah-Q Jazz Arkestra features: on vocals, the multi-cultural and multi-talented Nathalie Craan; on drums, Scott Silverman, one of China’s tastiest jazz drummers; on upright and electric bass, the versatile Da Zhong; on keyboards, the multi-talented composer scholar David Moser; and on guitar, Canadian jazz educator David Beckstead. The Ah-Q horn section features the powerful sounds of Kenny Liu Xiaoguang, one of China’s most exciting jazz improvisationalists, on flute and tenor sax, and long-time Beijing jazz stalwart Matt Roberts on trombone.
The band was formed in 2003, with an original line-up including saxophonist Atsushi Ouchi and drummer Andy Collier, both of whom now play jazz in New York. The group has featured some of Beijing’s finest jazz musicians over the years, including bassist Adam Huang (the mastermind of the Ninegates Jazz Festival), drummer Xiao Dou and trumpeter Wen Zhiyong.
