General Information

Zhao is a native of Hunan province who began studying the piano and oboe from the age of 10. He discovered Jazz at 17 and released his first album, entitled “Heart Strings” in Korea just 2 years later. Moving to Shanghai, he studied at The Shanghai Conservatory of Music, leaving in his last year to sing full-time. Coco can now be seen performing nightly at Pu-J’s in Shanghai’s Grand Hyatt and after-hours at JZ Club.

Coco Zhao’s repertoire includes old Shanghai songs rearranged into modern styles, plus original compositions by him and band members. Their music is smoothly blended, naturally formed but wildly performed. His band Possicobilities released their first album “Dream Situation” in summer 2006 through China, Canada, and the US. They were invited to perform for the Montreal Jazz Festival in Canada, Fuxing International Jazz Festival in Shanghai, the Nine Gates Jazz Festival in Beijing, the Yokohama Jazz Promenade in Japan, and the Penang Jazz Festival in Malaysia
