Piano and vocal duo performing soul, pop and jazz

FCCJ's Saturday Night Live entertainment just doesn't get any better than this. Philip Woo has been one of the music industry's leading keyboardists since the 1970s. He is also a producer, bandleader, producer and composer. He had long stints playing with jazz-funk pioneer Roy Ayers and then with Maze Featuring Frankie Beverly. He also toured and/or recorded with a who's who of top pop and jazz performers, including Patti Labelle, Roberta Flack, Grover Washington Jr., Whitney Houston and Cyndi Lauper. He has been based in Japan since 1998.

Philip will be joined by the vibrant young vocalist Ashton Moore. A Detroit native, Ashton has been winning recognition, scholarships and awards since his high school days. He was a semifinalist in the 2010 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition, considered the most prestigious jazz competition in the world. Ashton has performed with such jazz greats as Jon Hendricks, Wessell “Warmdaddy” Anderson, Cyrus Chestnut and Christian McBride.
Serious music fans won't want to miss this opportunity to hear one of the great veteran pianists team up with an up-and-coming vocalist.
