The Frankie Sixes
The Frankie Sixes is a new swing jazz band with some familiar faces from the Malaysian music scene. A rising talent in the local jazz scene, the band has been making waves this past year with appearances at the Iskandar Puteri Jazz Festival, Urbanscapes, the Haeundae Jazz Festival in Busan, Korea and also at Busan's oldest jazz club, Monk.
The band, a side project of singer-songwriter Reza Salleh, started out playing for lindy hop dancers, a kind of swing dance from the 1940-50s. Reza is an AIM award-winning singer-songwriter and a regular face in the independent music scene. His debut album “Realize” topped radio charts the year of its release and has led him to performances in Korea, Japan, Thailand, Australia, Indonesia and Singapore. Reza is the main vocal of the band.
On keys is Ee Jeng, one of the most well knows jazz musicians in the Malaysian jazz scene. In addition to playing most local jazz festivals in the country, internationally he’s played for the likes of Randy Bernsen, Laura Fygi and Indro Hardjodikoro, among many others. He’s normally seen leading the 8-year-old Ee Jeng Trio doing a repertoire of jazz originals or leading Funkatorie, a soul and funk act.
On double bass is Che Wan, who has played for some of the top jazz practitioners in the Malaysian music industry including Michael Verappan, David Gomes, Patrick Tebrack, Junji Delfino and many more. Outside of jazz he has sessioned for the likes of Yuna, Guba and Tony Eusoff.
On drums we have KJ, trained musically in the esteemed Musicians Institute in Hollywood, California. Together with Malaysian Jazz Ensemble WVC, KJ has drummed in many parts of the world such as China, Taiwan, Macau, Thailand, Canada, The United States and even the Caribbean Islands.
Expect to hear the likes of Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong and a lil’ bit of Nat “King” Cole thrown in for good measure. Be prepared to move your feet!
