Brass, Reeds, and Percussion (January 5, 2019)

One of the big movie hits of 2018 was Crazy Rich Asians, based on the novel of the same name by Kevin Kwan. Kwan indicates the novel and movie are roughly based on his experiences growing up in Singapore and are designed to introduce North Americans to modern Asia. The movie features recordings by Jasmine Chen, a mainland Chinese singer and pianist who graduated from Leeds College in Britain. One of the songs in the movie is “I Want You to Be My Baby,” by American composer Jon Hendricks, sometimes called the poet laureate of jazz and the James Joyce of jive. Today’s edition of Brass, Reeds, and Percussion opens with “I Want You To Be My Baby” from Crazy Rich Asians.
