This chapter traces the recent development of jazz music in the Greater China Region, such as Hong Kong, Guangzhou and Macau. The influence of cantopop into jazz music is crucial in positioning jazz music in Hong Kong. This study investigates how students learn and arrange jazz music in a Chinese cultural context. Their musical experiences are presented as exemplars to reveal a new consciousness for canto-jazz, and to show how they face cross-cultural issues in rearranging a cantopop tune into a big band or combo jazz arrangement.
