"...lyrical, funky, and aggressively inventive but tastefully restrained whenever the music calls for a soft touch." - Business Times

"Even though he rates as one of Singapore's most exciting young jazz keyboardists, it's taken Chok Kerong nine years to come up [with] his debut album. But what an album it is...Get this and you'll realise that you're really in good musical company indeed." – Today

A performer and composer whose work exhibits a keen intellect combined with emotional depth, Chok Kerong is making a significant impact as a pianist and Hammond organist. His first album Good Company, has been described as “a terrific debut” (New Straits Times), “no-nonsense jazz pulled like taffy from the sticky pot of 1960's classic jazz celebrity" ( and “a release permeated with texture and a rich sonic color palette”(

For this Late Nite performance, Kerong will perform in the piano and organ trio formats together with kindred spirits Andrew Lim (guitar), Soh Wen Ming (drums) and Christy Smith (bass), presenting a mix of original music and re-imagined standards.
