Biography

When people think of Singapore - the small island, city-state in Southeast Asia - images of a well-ordered, literate, socially disciplined, technologically advanced, multicultural entrepot easily come to mind. Musically, the country is known for its brilliant classically trained prodigies. Now there's another great musical talent coming from that part of the world - jazz organist, composer, and bandleader Kerong Chok. He's a graduate of the distinguished Manhattan School of Music and has played with a number of jazz stars including Frank Wess, Steve Wilson, and John Riley.
