Michael Veerapen Trio & Rachel Guerzo
Michael Veerapen’s name is synonymous with Malaysian music, particularly in the field of Jazz where he is widely acknowledged to be the driving force behind the jazz scene in Malaysia.
His career began in the mid ‘70’s where he made a name for himself as an up and coming pianist having worked with some of the more popular bands like Windjammer, the Delta Band and the legendary Jazz Fusion band, Vintage. Michael’s studies at the prestigious Berklee College of Music proved to be a major factor towards making his illustrious career; as a renowned Jazz Pianist, as a Composer, a Musical Director. His jazz club “All That Jazz” was an institution in and of itself, earning an international reputation for being one of the best and most significant Jazz Clubs in the Asia region.
Michael’s list of accomplishments have earned him the prestigious Brand Laureate Icon Award for being an iconic figure in the field of Professional Music in Malaysia having set a standard of excellence that has become synonymous with him and also become the benchmark for younger musicians to emulate.
Welcoming him back at Alexis, Michael will be joined by Rachel Guerzo. Born into Malaysia’s most influential music family - The Solianos and granddaughter of legendary Alfonso Soliano, Rachel has emerged as one of the most exciting and innovative jazz musicians in her own right; honing her art and cementing her reputation by playing to discerning live audiences over the past two decades.
A fluid pianist with a rich and sultry voice to match, a charming personality with a great sense of humour, Rachel is a naturally gifted entertainer in a class of her own.
Rachel’s unique ability to breathe new arrangements to popular jazz standards, R&B and chart topping tunes is her winning trademark. She has worked with some of the best musicians in the region, including Jeremy Monteiro, Michael Veerapen, Pascoal Mirelles, Steve Thornton, Valtinho Anastascio and Lewis Pragasam.
Having recently produced the album “Alfonso25”, a resume that includes a sell out performance at Dewan Filharmonik Petronas (DFP); 2 solo albums that have garnered local and international buzz, Rachel continues to strengthen her portfolio and remain relevant to the regional jazz circuit.
