Fresh from playing the Haeundae Jazz Festival in Busan, Korea and in preparation for their slot at Urbanscapes 2018 later this month, the Frankie Sixes brings a night classic swing jazz tunes from the 1940s-50s. Be prepared to move your feet!

The Frankie Sixes is a new swing jazz band with some familiar faces from the Malaysian
music scene.

The band, a side project of singer-songwriter Reza Salleh, started out playing for lindy hop dancers, a kind of swing dance from the 1940-50s. Reza is an AIM award-winning singer- songwriter and a regular face in the independent music scene. His debut album “Realize” topped radio charts the year of its release and has led him to performances in Korea, Japan, Thailand, Australia, Indonesia and Singapore. He’s performed at the 18th annual Sunset Live Festival, Asia Music Found Showcase and the Nakasu Jazz Festival in Japan, as well as being invited to the Jazz & Wine music series and the Daegu Folk Festival in Korea. On local shores he’s appeared most major music festivals and has had his own showcase at Dewan Filharmonik Petronas. Reza is the main vocal of the band.

On keys is Ee Jeng, one of the most well knows jazz musicians in the Malaysian jazz scene. In addition to playing most local jazz festivals in the country, internationally he’s played for the likes of Randy Bernsen, Laura Fygi and Indro Hardjodikoro, among many others. He’s normally seen leading the 8-year-old Ee Jeng Trio doing a repertoire of jazz originals or leading Funkatorie, a soul and funk act.

On double bass is Che Wan, who has played for some of the top jazz practitioners in the Malaysian music industry including Michael Verappan, David Gomes, Patrick Tebrack, Junji Delfino and many more. Outside of jazz he has sessioned for the likes of Yuna, Guba and Tony Eusoff.

On drums we have KJ, trained musically in the esteemed Musicians Institute in Hollywood, California. Together with Malaysian Jazz Ensemble WVC, KJ has drummed in many parts of the world such as China, Taiwan, Macau, Thailand, Canada, The United States and even the Caribbean Islands.
