Deren Zheng, witness for the Jazz history of Shanghai

Post by PENG, YAJUAN on Thu Oct 23, 2014 10:33 am

There is Lujiazui Financial City Culture Festival this week, and today's theme is Jazz music.

I was so lucky to enjoy a show by Mr. Deren Zheng and a group of young musicians from Shanghai Light Music Orchestra while taking a walk in the Lujiazui Central Greenland after lunch.

Overall, the show was good but not amazing. The Bass was so so, but the saxophonist was good, except that his so-call improvisation was below expectation.

The interesting thing was about the conductor, Mr.Deren Zheng, a ninty-two years' old man. Mr. Zheng was fully dedicated to Jazz since the 1940s and later became a teacher at Shanghai Conservatory Of Music.

His experience was legendary, and might give us young people some inspiration.
