Banji Kaicho presents:

 

Our second featured artist in August is no stranger to Japanese Jazz fans out there. A dynamic and lyrical soul, a living history of jazz piano over forty years, Masabumi Kikuchi (1939-2015) and his music has been an inspiring one all over my jazz infatuation. Whether it’s a hot modal and fusion tune under the sun, a heartfelt and moving solo quiet in the evening, or even his brief dabbling in synthesizer ambient and dance music opens up the gate of mere wonders like no other. An overdue show coming 7 years late, I hope I’m doing it right today, Poo-Sun.
