Jazz in July takes you on an exploration of jazz that reaches deep into its roots to discover new horizons. Throughout the month of July, enjoy intimate jazz music at the Café 21 Living Room (Concourse) and lively, upbeat jazz tunes at the Music Station (Outdoor Theatre). Be dazzled by the soulful improvisations, swinging rhythms and the infectious grooves of Singapore jazz artists.

Comprising Corey Manders on saxophone, Mark Boatman on drums and Aynsley Green on organ, the trio has been involved in the Singapore and international jazz scene for many years.

Corey Manders in his early years studied with multiple jazz luminaries, including Julian Priester (The Sun Ra Arkestra), Pat Labarbera (The Elvin Jones Band), and Bob Mover (Chet Baker and the Charles Mingus Orchestra). After completing a degree in Music at York University of Toronto, Corey performed internationally in jazz festivals and clubs. Several of his compositions are included in feature films and television shows.

Aynsley Green is a versatile keyboardist and musical director who has recorded with The Rasmus, DGTLNATIVE, and Sezairi Sezali, and has opened for The Rolling Stones and Taylor Swift. As a jazz pianist and organist, he has worked with international jazz and R&B artists.

Mark Boatman is a seasoned professional with more than 40 years of drumming experience. Throughout the ’80s and ’90s, Mark performed with several bands in the Dallas, USA area where he honed his drumming skills in the areas of pop, rock, blues, country, jazz and funk. He moved on to playing with Chicago-style blues bands as well as jazz groups, performing at various music venues.
