I have been to Hong Kong a few times now and also to Mainland China for the first time in November of 2012. Jazz is going strong over there, the people appreciate our music and are hungry for it. And I am hungry for gigs! So that should work. Hong Kong is the link between China and the West, will lots a charming British details. Shanghai is the New York of the East and has a very vibrant jazz scene. And this here is the Opera House in Guangzhou. Brand new with the chairs still in plastic foil. We played there in November and I hope to come back soon.
