Fusion Five

FUSION FIVE is a new exciting project by Hong Kong drummer, band leader

and Soultone Cymbals Artist Lloyd Yamid. After releasing his debut CD ‘An

Inspiration’ in 2017 Lloyd introduces an international line up of premier Hong

Kong based musicians with a wealth of experience across multiple genres,

performing original and innovative jazz fusion with a hint of latin, rock and

smooth jazz.

Joining Lloyd his latest venture is US jazz pianist, composer and arranger

Bob Mocarsky, previously a mainstay in the San Francisco and New York

scenes where he quickly gained a reputation as an exciting improviser and

vocal accompanist, as well as B3 organist and arranger, bringing his

originality and passion for music to all genres ranging from Funk to Latin to

Bebop. Bob has written hundreds of compositions and recorded dozens,

while leading many jazz ensembles of his own.

Versatile Canadian bassist Sylvain Gagnon is active in both studio and on

stage, recording on hundreds of CDs and touring with local and international

artists including a World Tour with Jacky Cheung. Equally at home on double

or electric bass Sylvain is in demand across Asia with a variety of groups from

orchestras to jazz ensembles and has performed with, amongst others, Bob

Mintzer, Scott Hamilton, Laura Fyji, Eric Marienthal and James Morrison.

British Saxophonist/producer Jon Rebbeck is active in both jazz and classical

formats. Throughout his career he has appeared on the international stage

with a diverse range of musicians including Michael Nyman, Phillip Glass,

Bob Mintzer, Phil Wilson, Jim Snidero, Eric Marienthal and legendary Louis

‘Moondog’ Hardin. Jon was the original baritone saxophonist of the award

winning Apollo Saxophone Quartet and a member of the late Bobby Taylor’s

band.

Teriver Cheung is an internationally touring guitarist and composer.

Originally born in Hong Kong, his early exposure to classical music has

contributed to his future style of composing as well as playing. Musicians he

has collaborated include Latin Grammy Award winner Eddie Gómez, Billy

Drummond, Jean-Michel Pilc, George Garzone and Antonio Hart. He also

tours constantly with his own group, appearing at some of the major music

festivals including Jazz World Festival (Hong Kong), Jazz W Ruinach Festival
