Jazz at Josephine’s started Wednesday night, January 7, to kick off the new year at the hot venue for good, delectable Filipino cuisine, Josephine’s Cerritos.

Well sought-after musicians, of course, were main entertainment, composed of none other than, Jazz Pianist Tateng Katindig, Jazzmopolitan’s Gentleman of Jazz Ner de Leon on Sax, Dynamic drummer David Anderson and Bassist, Record Producer and creator of Bass Tutorial Videos, Andrew Ford.

This group plays every other Wednesday of the month. Many local and international artists who jam along to make the night’s event livelier flock the joint along with many patrons who just crave for the succulent food.

Last night’s roster of incredible singers from here and around the world were: actor/singer Richard Merk, who is also dubbed as Philippines’ Jazz Prince who happened to be just visiting the country and was in the area; Jet Montelibano, formerly of famous Filipino group, Music and Magic; local artists Derek SantosCiel PerlasCharmie Morales and Mignonet Raceles.

To local artists here, it was truly a treat  to have witnessed the stellar performance of Mr. Merk and the band with their version of Chick Corea’s Spain!

To those of you who have not been to Josephine’s, do come by.  Not only will you be treated with good music, you’ll never know who stops by and join you! Filipino or not, for sure, you will enjoy the delicious food they serve! – Joni Villamil – FilAmNation
