An Evening of Jazz at The Fairmont Peace Hotel, Shanghai, China

My Grandfather, Victor Won Cumyow, was a jazz singer at the Cathay Hotel in the 1930’s (now the Fairmont Peace Hotel.) I dream to spend an evening listening to smooth jazz in this iconic setting. I’m told my Grandfather was considered the Chinese Bing Crosby in his day.
