Christmas is just around the corner and well-known Malaysian jazz stalwarts David Gomes & Junji Delfino are all set to send you in the holiday mood with their first-ever Christmas jazz album, aptly entitled, It’s Christmas Time Again.
Produced under their own label, Catalyst Records, this maiden album is a collection of twelve tunes, of which five are their very own original compositions.
David Gomes & Junji Delfino are very much established names in the Kuala Lumpur & Singapore jazz scene.
David is not only a versatile pianist but he is a talented singer, a gifted composer & arranger, and a dedicated bandleader to all of the jazz outfits he heads, whether they be as small as a Trio to as big as a 13-piece Ochestra. His is an established name in prestigious jazz festivals locally and internationally.
David’s main squeeze, wife of 17 years, Junji, is equally captivating as a vocalist. A true jazz performer, a cut above the rest, she possesses a vocal style that many find mesmerizing. Her voice control, impeccable diction & phrasing and self-assured flair on the stage coupled with her flawless command of the microphone as an instrument rather than a method of amplification makes for a truly gripping sound experience.
