For the fit among you, if you're running through tall reeds on a daily basis, this musical sensation would be a great complement. Flourishing and hip, seemingly telepathic playing. #makeUPSjealous

About the Album

This new ensemble of double bassist Chris Jennings as a leader once again surprises listeners with a unique collaboration of jazz double bass with the incredible Japanese koto of Mieko Miyazaki and renowned and versatile French drummer Patrick Goraguer. The complicity of this double bassist and drummer for years now creates a solid and strong force allowing the flexibility of the Japanese koto to fall perfectly in its place. The trio performs the signature compositions of Chris Jennings. Yet, a large part is left to improvisation and the immense talent of these three musicians. A unique trio showing an obvious pleasure in exploring the musical universes of the East, North, South and West, and then meeting in a centre filled with diverse influences and a huge liberty.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
