Az Samad goes solo

August 22, 2012

The local jazz musician will be playing songs that he wrote over the past eleven years as well as covers of the Beatles, Nirvana and P Ramlee.


PETALING JAYA: Local jazz musician Az Samad will be performing a solo guitar medley at Kuala Lumpur’s No Black Tie on Monday next week.

According to Az, the Aug 27 performance will feature two 45-minute sets where he will play songs that he wrote over the past 11 years.

“These include songs I don’t get to play that often, or at all, because of the typical one-set limitation,” he said.

While most of the songs will be his own work, the Az Samad Trio frontman said that he will play a few covers including that of the Beatles, Nirvana and P Ramlee.

The sets will include nylon and steel string guitar solos, with the promise of an electric guitar solo.

Starting at 9.30pm, the show will go on for about 90 minutes, with a 15-minute intermission in between.

There will be a RM30 cover charge. For more information and reservations, contact No Black Tie after 5pm at 03-21423737, or check out its website at www.noblacktie.com.my.
