THURSDAY TRACK PICK - "The March Bounce" by Chok Kerong

Publish date:

This week's track pick comes all the way from Singapore. Jazz organist Chok Kerong studied law before switching gears and heading to New York for graduate studies at the Manhattan School of Music.

On his latest release Tales They Told Me, Chok uses the classic organ trio format to demonstrate a formidable command of his instrument. We hear shades of Larry Goldings, Carla Bley and Jimmy McGriff in his playing, but most of all, we hear an artist with a strong sense of swing and a sound of his own.
