NTBM (Not-To-Be-Missed) At The Brink
October 8 @ 8:00 pm - 11:30 pm£8
NTBM (Not-To-Be-Missed) is an original international jazz collective led by Tjoe Man Cheung, a Hong Kong native guitarist and composer, and formed by emerging musicians from around the world. The group aspires to compose original jazz and perform globally.
Tjoe unites Eastern and Western musicians on the stage to facilitate cultural exchange. The fusion of cultures result in interesting improvisation and experimental music conversation on the stage, which indeed epitomises the essence of jazz. From Asia to Europe, NTBM brings groovy urban jazz music that creates by string instrument, brass instrument and percussion presented by dynamic line-ups.
This exciting project began in London in early 2016. NTBM has initiated a couple of surprising line-ups and performed in gigs from the likes of Sofar Sounds London and Jazz In The Present Tense. With its growing recognition, NTBM has made its way to Hong Kong and China in Autumn 2016.
In 2017, NTBM has globally released their debut LP and orange in September 2017. The launch party was held in Shouson Theatre, Hong Kong Arts Centre.
The release was followed by a series of tours in Osaka, Kanazawa, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Beijing and Kuala Lumpur.
