Impromptu: Jazz Pianist Patrick Lui on the 'Kung Fu' of ImprovisationHKU MUSE

Presented by

In its original etymology, 'kung fu' refers to any skill acquired through extensive learning and dedicated practice. It is also where martial arts and jazz converge, in which both exhibit the pursuit of mastery and meaningful exchanges. In the second 'Impromptu' series, Hong Kong jazz pianist and composer Patrick Lui and his band will captivate the audience with a Bruce Lee films inspired jazz suite. Joining Patrick are two extraordinary practitioners, Hollywood martial arts consultant and Silat master Evan Tai and Ving Tsun master Jerry Yeung. Together they will share the mantras from their respective disciplines, showcasing the 'kung fu' of jazz and martial arts: discipline and improvisation, rhythm and timing, styles and forms, as well as flow and harmony.
