WVC TRiO +1 @ JazzGarden

Drawing inspiration from the many facets of modern life, influenced by Malaysian and other Asian cultures, the music of WVC TRiO +1 cuts across many musical genres and defies any kind of classification. Tunes such as “The Art of the Wind Up Alarm Clock”, “Found and Lost”, “Standing in the Rain on Euclid Avenue” tries to examine and express the human condition in modern life, using the artform known as "jazz" as its stylistic musical vehicle.
Formed in 2006 as a trio, WVC TRiO +1 completed its quartet line up with the addition of saxophonist Julian Chan. The group has toured extensively in the region, heralding back the spirit being "on the road" of touring jazz bands of old. Through these regional tours, WVC TRiO +1 has brought its music to many corners of Malaysia, Singapore, China, Taiwan, Thailand, and Macao. In one of these tours, the quartet managed to travel extensively over 18 cities within a month, using different means of transportation, playing in many different types of venues.
WVC TRiO +1 has three instrumental albums - “WVC TRiO” (2008), “ELEVEN” (2009), “In the Dark, I See Her” (2011) - that explored different musical genres (while maintaining the spirit of jazz as its core) and combinations in its line-up. Most of the tunes recorded are original tunes written by the band members. In addition, the band also experiments with transforming unlikely pop tunes, Chinese classics, and many mainstream music into new jazz re-arrangements, in the spirit of the great jazz musicians of old.
WVC TRiO +1 has been invited to appear in many festivals in the region such as Taichung Jazz Festival, Kota Kinabalu Jazz Festival, Phuket International Jazz Festival, Tianjin International Jazz Fest, Macao International Jazz Week, Tianjin May Music Festival and many others. In addition, the band has played extensively in the Malaysian local jazz clubs, from No Black Tie, Alexis, Nero Fico, (the now defunct) Venue, and many others.

The present incarnation of the WVC Trio + 1 consists of bandleader/composer/arranger/music director/pianist Tay Cher Siang, bassist AJ, drummer KJ Wong and saxophonist Julian Chan. The band remains one of the most active units in the Malaysian performance circuit and is one of the most sought after bands in Malaysia for Hi-Fi recordings and live performances.

从现代城市生活中汲取养分,缝隙间透露的是马来西亚和亚洲的文化,不过却是以爵士音乐来表态,WVC TRiO +1 自从成立以来难以以单一种类的风格来界定。爵士音乐是出发点,可是涉猎的乐风随心所欲,可能是看要说的故事而定吧。像”The Art of the Wind Up Alarm Clock” “闹钟的哲学”,你会听到的是上了发条的古老闹钟滴答滴答的响,而底蕴是Drums ‘n’ Bass 的急躁;而”Found & Lost”“ 寻而复失”的情绪是黑暗的忧郁的,有什么比找到了又失去了更令人伤感?”Standing in the Rain on Euclid Avenue” “冒雨在尤基理德街”,鼓刷子的雨滴声和焦躁不安的和弦交织。WVC TRiO +1 的曲目都在说着各个不同的故事,可能发生在你我身上的故事,以爵士乐多变的节奏,弦律,和和声来呈现。
自从2006年以三重奏的身份出击,马来西亚爵士乐团WVC TRiO +1 一直致力于创造属于他们的音乐语汇,再将他们的音乐带到世界各角落。从2007年开始就进行一年一度的巡回,至今他们已经走过了中国各大城市(北京,天津,上海,苏州,无锡,长沙,广州,深圳,佛山)以及台北,台中,澳门,曼谷,新加坡,匹兹堡,纽约和摩根城。他们也秉持着最原始的巡演精神,以一辆货车出发,进行一年一度的马来西亚巡演,往往将音乐带到令人意想不到的小镇城乡。
WVC TRiO +1 至今已经推出了三张专辑:2008年的WVC TRiO, 2009 年的 Evelen, 以及 2011 年的In the Dark, I See Her. 专辑中大多曲子都是团友们的创作,以爵士乐为基调,各种现代音乐的乐风构建不同的故事。另外,传统爵士乐的精神,将流行曲子;百老汇名曲;电影名曲等等改编为爵士乐演奏的动作,也是WVC TRiO +1 喜欢的。是以他们已经改编了现代人熟知的曲子:甜蜜蜜,我愿意,菊花台,童话,Don’t Know Why。因为爵士乐的精神是一个不断重新自我更新,与时并进。
至今WVC TRiO +1 已经参与了本区域几项重要的爵士音乐节。Taichung Jazz Festival (2010), Kota Kinabalu Jazz Festival (2010), Phuket International Jazz Festival (2011), Tianjin International Jazz Festival (2012), Macao International Jazz Week (2012), Tianjin May Music Festival (2013), Taichung Jazz Festival (2013)。此外,此乐团也是马来西亚和亚洲主要的爵士乐团,时常为本土和来访的歌手艺人伴奏演出,另外也参与许多专辑的录音和制作。
