Show your jazz hands as Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay showcases toe-tappin’, finger-snappin’ musical bliss during Jazz in July. Explore the wonderful world of jazz with a series of ticketed concerts featuring a crew of virtuosi from the jazz canon. Let the heavyweight champs and emerging cutting-edge bands introduce you to a range of sub-genres from the traditional big band, swing, and ragtime to the current contemporary and fusion.

Both leads of the bands – Shai Maestro and Tierney Sutton – are also conducting masterclasses for jazz enthusiasts. Let your hips move to the groove of Afro-Cuban jazz superstars Alfredo Rodriguez and Pedrito Martinez. Discover a musical crossover with two brothers collectively known as Kyoto Jazz Massive as they are joined by musicians from various Japanese bands including Root Soul's Ikeda Kenichi and A Hundred Birds' Kazutake Takeuchi, among others. Don't miss a double bill featuring the Tim Stocker Quartet and The Wei! Experiment, led by two key players in the Singapore jazz scene Tim Stocker and Tan Weixiang respectively.
