On Friday, August 12, Flushing Town Hall will present the Yuhan Su Jazz Quintet, which will perform a new series of compositions inspired by Chinese Mythology Kua Fu, a giant who decided to chase and catch the Sun.
The Yuhan Su Quintet is a distinctive contemporary jazz ensemble featuring Yuhan Su (vibraphone), Chris Cheek (tenor/saxophone), Glenn Zaleski (piano), Marty Kennedy (bass), and Nathan Ellman-Bell (drums).
A native of Taiwan, New York based-vibraphonist Su has been living in the United States since moving to Boston in 2008 to study at Berklee College of Music. Since then, she has had performances along the East Coast and joined acclaimed saxophonist Greg Osby's label, Inner Circle Music.
Su's debut release as leader, Flying Alone (Inner Circle Music, 2013), has been released to widespread approval. In the April edition of DownBeat, Brad Farberman wrote of Su's
"intelligence, sensitivity and a haunting sense of tenderness."
Flying Alone has received numerous music awards and nominations, including ‘Best Jazz Album of the Year’, ‘Best New Artist’, ’ Best Jazz Single’ from the 2013 Golden Indie Music Award and ‘Best Performance Album of the year’, ’Best Composer Award’ from 2013 Golden Melody Award in Taiwan, and “Best Release of 2013” by All about Jazz.
In Fall 2015, Yuhan has released her second album A Room of One’s Own through Inner Circle Music (USA) and AsiaMuse (Taiwan). You can learn more at http://innercirclemusic.net/artists/yuhan-su/.
