Outside of Peel Fresco's Sunday sessions, and the Saturday Night Jazz Orchestra's monthly gigs at the Fringe Club, Hong Kong has few dependable jazz events that feature local and international talents. The Hong Kong International Jazz Festival is counted on year after year to remedy this deficiency. This year's edition is no exception, and, now in it's ninth edition, the event is bringing a slew of great vocalists to the forefront.
