Off Beat: Ah Boys to Jazz

Video story August 11, 2022

Passion is a young man’s game. Aaron James Lee and Matthew Tan would know—they’re youths trying to make it big in the best way they know how: jazz music. But as it turns out, it’s a rough road to tread without the network and experience afforded by age.

RICE speaks to these two passionate young musicians who dream of an unorthodox career that promises them a life of doing what they love.

Off Beat is a three-part video series about unexpected people in jazz, commissioned by Esplanade Offstage and produced by RICE.
