Description
TxT ensemble is a brand-new group led by jazz guitarist Tjoe and tap dancer Tansei. Joining them are double bass player Jeff Lehmberg and trumpeter Farley Angel.

Tjoe and Taisei first collaborated in the winter of 2017, performing in the band NTBM, and since then they’ve developed and composed music tailored for tap dancing and jazz improvisation, and have also re-arranged jazz standards. Their shows always feature live music, especially improvised jazz – because tapping is like talking musically.

Tjoe Man Cheung (guitar, composer, arranger)

“Tjoe’s compositions and performance style is incredibly unique and his clear charisma as a band leader clearly communicate his effectiveness working with other musicians.” - Adam Maestro, Sofar Sounds London

Tjoe is a Hong Kong-born-and-bred musician. This Musicians Institute alumnus is a favoured sideman in the pop-music scene, a talented jazz and blues guitarist, and a proficient arranger and composer. Currently the official artist of Melancon, Tjoe is renowned for his creative approach, powerful soloing, spectacular improvisation skills and the splash of humour that he brings to the stage.


Tansei (tap dancer)
Tansei, from Tokyo, Japan, started learning tap dancing with some of the top dancers in New York in 2010. He has performed at a numerous venues and events throughout Japan and overseas.

Tansei landed in Hong Kong in 2014, and since then he’s played in hundreds of jazz gigs. He also leads a band, Tokyo Senretsu Sess!on, with jazz and flamenco-based musicians – they’ll release a CD this month.

TxT ensemble是由爵士結他手Tjoe和踢踏舞者Tansei帶領的全新組合,成員包括低音大提琴手Jeff Lehmberg和小號樂手Farley Angel。

Tjoe和Taisei於2017年冬季首次在NTBM樂隊中合作,始後他們以即興爵士樂融合踢踏舞為創作方向,也會重新編製爵士樂標準曲。他們的演出總是伴隨著現場音樂如爵士樂,而且大部分是即興創作的,再加上踢踏舞的節奏,是一場富音樂感的對話。
