Guitarist, composer and producer Marc Antoine was born in Paris (France) in 1963. When he was 11 years old his parents bought him his first guitar which quickly became his third arm. In 1988 he moved to London, later on became an acclaimed session player in Tokyo and landed in Los Angeles in the late 90ies. He stayed there for 12 years playing for music royalty such as Sting, Celine Dion, Rod Stewart, Cher and George Benson. Marc began his successful solo career in 1994 with his first album “Classical Soul”. After a successful cooperation with the guitarist Paul Brown, “Foreign Xchange” (2009), he released “My Classical Way” in 2010 followed by his latest album “Guitar Destiny” (2012). Marc’s career boasts many #1 hits on the R&R contemporary jazz charts, as well as topping the Billboard charts. In 1995, R&R elected him Best New Artist of The Year, which was followed by his Gavin Award in 1998. He has also received numerous nominations for jazz awards in the US and Canada, including “International Artist of the Year” at the 2010 American Smooth Jazz Awards.

The Asian Heritage Jazz Festival will feature some of the most renown Asian Jazz Artists in America, who have made inroads on a national and global scale.

This festival strives to showcase the achievements of these artists, and to recognize the many Asian American musicians who have succeeded in embracing an original American art form. Jazz has become increasingly popular in Asia with The Java Jazz festival, now the largest jazz festival in the world. It is now time to highlight and promote our local artists here in the United States. The festival also aims to promote and nurture younger artists who deserve wider recognition, but are unable to break into the mainstream world of major jazz festivals.

To further insure the future of the Asian culture in embracing an American art form the festival also plans to set up music scholarship opportunities to deserving talent. Artists featured: Saxophonist Jeff Kashiwa, Koto June Kuramoto, Vocalist Pauline Wilson, Saxman Michael Paulo, keyboardist Ming Freeman, Korean Saxman Danny Jung, Piano Legend Rene Paulo, Bassist Benny Rietveld, Vocalist Kemeya Seward, Saxophonist Ner de Leon, Bassist David Inamine , Guitarist Fred Schreuders and Yu ooka, arranger /composer Derek Nakamoto, Pianist Boy Katindig, Saxophonist Justin Klunk and more!
