About Chok Kerong
“…lyrical, funky, and aggressively inventive but tastefully restrained whenever the music calls for a soft touch.” – Business Times
A performer and composer whose work exhibits a keen intellect combined with emotional depth, Chok Kerong is making a significant impact as a pianist and Hammond organist. He has performed in many parts of the world, including the USA, India, Thailand and Malaysia. His first album of all-original music, “Good Company”, has been described as “a terrific debut” (New Straits Times), “a release permeated with texture and a rich sonic color palette” (criticaljazz.com), and “no-nonsense jazz pulled like taffy from the sticky pot of 1960’s classic jazz celebrity” (lajazz.com). Kerong is also active as a composer and arranger. He has written and arranged music for Singaporean artists such as Rani Singam and the T’ang Quartet.
