After a European tour in November of 2014 and a visit to Paris where Jeremy and Eugene performed for a private concert with the Asian Jazz All-Stars Power Quartet, Jeremy and Eugene were enchanted by the sights, sounds, cuisine and the people of Paris. They discussed recording an album of songs mostly by one of the most well loved French composers, Michel Legrand. Legrand is not only known as a composer of beautiful songs and movie scores but is also a formidable jazz pianist with many recordings. In June of 2015, Jeremy and Eugene recorded their album "To Paris With Love" in Europe that will be released before the middle of September 2015. This concert at the newly refurbished Victoria Concert Hall will feature tunes from the album including such Legrand classics as "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life?", "The Summer Knows" and the pop classic "How Do You Keep The Music Playing?" The album and the concert will also feature classic standards that are strongly associated with Michel Legrand such as "Autumn Leaves" and "La Vie En Rose" as well as a Legrand inspired compostion entitled De Paris à Segré (From Paris to Segré) composed by Monteiro and Pao and inspired by their travel from Paris to the town of Segré in France where they have also performed. The concert features a show of both virtuosity and sensitivity by Monteiro and Pao who will play in a duo format for most of the concert with guest appearances by vocalists Robert Fernando and Rani Singam. The Concert will also feature the Oxley String Quartet led by Seah Huan Yuh.
