AN AMERICAN CAT IN THE LION CITY
A documentary chronicling the life and work of the American jazz guitarist, Greg Chako, and his journey to and around Asia, fraught with personal tribulations as well as triumphs. We hear about Greg’s experiences through his own quiet narrative, which is framed within telling scenes of Singapore.
This is the 10-minute version of the documentary. It is a short gaze, a palimpsest, into the life and work of the American jazz guitarist, Greg Chako. In the film we experience swinging acoustic jazz of a very high calibre indeed, the jazz that Greg and his various bands have played in Asia for over six years.
