"When I listen to Rosey Chan, she makes my soul smile" – Quincy Jones
With a technique termed "flawless" by Jones, pianist and composer Rosey Chan toggles deftly between wildly disparate musical genres. Her album, One, produced by Sting, is an eclectic compilation of piano pieces ranging from Chopin to Tom Waits, while her recent album, "8 Years of My Life", is a tour de force of original composition and comprises all-new material written by Chan including jazz, electronica and a spoken word piece with Fanny Ardant.
