After a run of amazing standing room only gigs recently with our “Record Store Selects” series, we decided to take this opportunity to make a return to a more sit down affair with an intimate gig that pairs the jazzy stylings of Tim Stocker and The Pocket Watchers with a variety of beautiful wines from Portugal curated by Mark Lee of Colheitas Singapore. The wines are all natural ranging from minimal intervention, organic and biodynamic.

The Pocket Watchers

TimStocker

When a musician plays a groove that’s very solid and with a great feel…”, this is referred to informally as being “in the pocket”; when they “maintain this feel for an extended period of time, never wavering, this is often referred to as a deep pocket. The Pocket Watchers are a group of Singapore based musicians dedicated to exploring the pocket across a variety of musical styles with strong roots in Jazz, Funk and R&B. It’s a rotating door led by Saxophonist – Tim Stocker giving as many musicians as possible a chance to find their pocket in a creative and fun environment. The workshop moves around Singapore at places like The Hangar, Audace Restaurant, The Library, Employee’s Only, Lulu’s Lounge & B28.

Domino Foxtrot 2016 (red) (Minimal Intervention Red Wine)

This is an easy drinking, fresh and delicately scented blend of strawberry and raspberry, with a mineral finish. It’s a well-structured and finely honed wine that is refreshing on its own and is ideal for sipping or quaffing, or paired with light food. Field blend of Alicante Bouschet, Trincadeira & Muscat varietals. 

Niepoort Poeirinho 2015 (red) (Biodynamic Red Wine)

This is a classy wine that is aromatic, fruity and complex. It is incredibly fine, with smooth tannins, and presents delicate aromas. On the palate, this wine features saline and maritime notes typical of the calcareous terroir, and shows good structure, grip and precision. It is distinctly mineral and refreshing, with plenty of cherry, strawberry and wild berries, and has a long finish with linearity and firmness. 100% Baga grape varietal. 

Conceito Legitimo 2015 (red) (Minimal Intervention Red Wine)

A markedly fresh and easy drinking red from the Douro, with a soft and spicy lightness. On the nose, it reveals floral and rustic barnyard notes. On the palate, it offers good balance, fine tannins and an alluring intensity that makes one crave for another glass. Blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz varietals. 

Antonio Madeira Colheita Tinto 2015 (red) (Minimal Intervention Red Wine) 

This vibrant and supple natural red wine is produced from old vines with an average age of 50 years, consisting mainly of a field blend of Alfrocheiro and Touriga Nacional grapes. With a complex nose of red fruit and small mountain flowers, this wine has a distinctive goût de terroir, expressing gentle notes of granite, minerality and fresh earth. On the palate, the tannins are nicely integrated and pure, with a lovely core of cherry and raspberry. The finish is elegant, fresh, tasty and long.

Antonio Madeira Vinhas Velhas Tinto 2015 (red) (Minimal Intervention Red Wine) 

This charming natural red wine is made from vines with an average age of up to 90 years, and composed of a field blend of Jaen, Tinta Amarela and Baga. As with all wines from Antonio Madeira, it is made with minimal intervention and wild yeasts, and is completely free of herbicides and pesticides. Presenting an aroma of fresh red forest fruits, tiny flowers and pine needles, this elegant wine is full of life and displays a beautiful granitic flavour and touch of spice on the palate, with a fresh and structured finish. 

Antonio Madeira Colheita Branco 2015 (white) (Minimal Intervention White Wine) 

This lively white wine is made from vines with an average age of 50 years, and exhibits a floral bouquet and granite, with a touch of green olive. As with all wines from Antonio Madeira, it is made with minimal intervention and wild yeasts, and is completely free of herbicides and pesticides. It is a fresh and youthful wine, and presents appealing complexity, delicious roundness and a salivating palate of lovely salinity, moist earth and fresh oyster on the finish.

Antonio Madeira Liberdade Branco 2017 (white) (Minimal Intervention White Wine)

This has no sulfites until bottling (and then just 15-20 mg/litre). It’s complex, mineral, spicy and reductive on the nose, while on the palate it is lively and intense with pear, citrus and spice. Amazing presence and complexity. Rating of 95/100.

Quinta do Ameal Loureiro 2015 (white) (Organic White Wine)

Quinta do Ameal is the quality wine champion of Vinho Verde, dedicated to the Loureiro grape varietal. This is a beautiful organic and un-oaked wine, and is crisp, dry, fresh, floral and elegant, with a juicy citrus palate and lovely minerality. It is multilayered and feels gloriously alive, with a persistent finish that makes one drool. It is a natural pairing with oyster, prawn, crab, lobster, sashimi, sushi and various cooked seafood dishes. 

Please Note: Although priority will be given to table bookings for this event, we will accept a small number walk-ins who wish to stand and enjoy the gig. 

If you have been to our humble little record shop before, you will know us for pur casual atmosphere. By no means are we a plush jazz club. Our seating is made of hand made benches. Please refer to the images below to get an understanding of the seating arrangement and event layout before you choose your seating / ticket package.

RECORD STORE SELECTS – TRUMPET Z & THE BOOGIE

Record Store Selects… – Trumpet Z and the Boogie

With a track record of absolutely smashing it every time they play at Choice Cuts, it’s no surprise that we have them back once again for another intimate session of “Record Store Selects”. Front man, Dan Z’berg says they’ve been working on a lot of new material and they are super excited to play for us at the Cuts! We’re excited too!

Due to popularity of these nights it is really necessary to create more space so we can get you all more up close and personal with our handpicked bands. So at this next instalment of Record Store Selects…, you’ll notice that we really made more room for dancing by shifting out a lot of our tables and benches to convert our cozy record shop into a standing room venue.

Trumpet Z and the Boogie will bring you their trademark fusion of Jazz and Hip Hop. Expect some original material as well as some well-known covers with that special Trumpet Z arrangement! The night is kicking off from 6pm till late. First set is from 7:30pm. Cop a nice bottle of natural wine, or some craft beer and vibe out to the band and the DJ sets by Matteblacc in-between! There will also be light bites available like our range of pizza toasts, pastries and nachos!

Bringing live 80’s, 90’s, and 00’s hip hop to Singapore while mixing in elements of funk, jazz, and R&B, this 4 piece band consists of:
Bass and Vox: Leonard Ng
Drums: Darryl Ervin
Keys: Nolan Bradbury
Trumpet, Vox, and MC: Dan Z’berg

7pm – 11pm
Sunday, 28th October
Live Jazz, Funk & Soul Music fused with Hip Hop.
$20 cover, with a complimentary drink (non-alcoholic or standard house-pour spirits, beers and wine).

On Sunday, 9th September, the band that kicked it all off at our inaugural session of “Record Store Selects…” is back!

Including R&B and funk classics by timeless artists including Maxwell, Prince, Stevie Wonder, and Terence Trent D’Arby, this is one soul journey you definitely want to be part of.
