In a career spanning thirty years, Singaporean pianist Jeremy Monteiro has done it all. He's played with everyone from Michael Brecker to Charlie Haden, from James Moody to Toots Thielemans and from Cassandra Wilson to Simon and Garfunkel. He has performed all over the world and his performance at the 1988 Montreux Jazz Festival alongside bassist Eldee Young and drummer Red Holt was described by festival director Claude Nobbs as, an unforgettable set which will remain a classic concert of the first twenty-two years of Montreux."
AAJ's Far East contributor Ian Patterson caught up with Monteiro recently, who warmly and articulately demonstrates the vibrancy and global nature of jazz.
