About the Album

About the album: Dialogue is my first jazz composition studio album, which consists of ten original compositions of mine written for vibraphone, piano/keyboards, acoustic bass/electric bass and drums. Each piece in this album is based on my personal reflections on various subjects as well as my Japanese cultural background and heritage. The album title "Dialogue" portrays my sincere hope to connect with you on a deeper level through these ten musical pieces. I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to each of you for taking time to listen to this album. About the track: As a native of Fukushima, Japan’s tragic 2011 earthquake/tsunami as well as The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plants meltdown struck me deeply in a personal level. Since then, many people in Fukushima lost their hometowns, and they have been continuously struggling with the uncertain health impact to the radiation exposure from the nuclear reactors that have long ways to be decommissioned. With this piece, I would like to continue raising awareness of difficulties Fukushima still has been facing. All things in this world are impermanent, and I truly hope someday the situations there will be improved.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
