Dedicated to Esplanade's jazz mentorship programme, Bright Young Things, Jazz Edge invites past participants to share the stage with fellow young jazz musicians and showcase their diverse jazz styles, influenced by a variety of music genres including hip hop. Young jazz artists from bands such as Afterglow and Butter Chiclets perform a blend of vocal, contemporary and classic jazz. Formed by alumni of Esplanade’s Bright Young Things class of 2013, Butter Chiclets includes three vocalists (Adia Tay Yan Tze, Beth Yap Peng, Chloe Low), two keyboardists (Ryan Ang Jia Yong, Chong Xiu Min), two drummers (Yap Ting Wei, Rafaee Mahmood), one bassist (Xanthus Ching) and one guitarist (Andy Chong). With its members already being seasoned performers, the 9-strong ensemble now graces the Esplanade stage for the third time, performing their repertoire of swing, bossanova, soul, and contemporary jazz.
