Vincent Hsu & Harlem Inc. Harlem Legacy: Back to St. Nick’s Pub.
An homage to St. Nick’s Pub, one of the oldest continuous operating jazz clubs in Harlem, and the home of many historic, late night Jam sessions.
Award-winning bassist and composer Vincent Hsu played at St. Nick’s for many years and he has curated an upbeat programme “Harlem Legacy: Back to St. Nick's Pub” delivered by a stellar octet featuring hard bop, funk, Latin, and Hsu’s originals.
Taiwanese musician Vincent Hsu is an internationally travelled artist whose musical styles cross between jazz and Afro-Cuban music, leaving his own musical mark through his original compositions that embrace the context of Taiwan’s own soundscape. His albums have won the Global Music and Golden Indie Music Awards. He also has a deep passion for jazz education and outreach, including hosting the Golden Bell award-winning radio show “Jazz Supreme.”
The concert was recorded at Taiwan’s National Music Hall in Taipei.
