Stephane Belmondo Trio

Love for Chet: A tribute to one of jazz’s greatest influencers.

First Initiative Foundation (FIF) was pleased to sponsor this Le French May performance by Stephane Belmondo, who performed in a trio with Jesse Van Ruller on guitar and Thomas Bramerie on double-bass. The trio performed an album in loving memory of Chet Baker, the legendary jazz trumpeter who had once attended a show by Stephane Belmondo. This important tribute, performed immaculately by the trio, brought the energy and soul of Baker’s music back to Hong Kong audiences.

FIF was also pleased to sponsor two more jazz performances by Paul Lay and the Geraldine Laurent Quartet, in addition to a jazz masterclass.
