Event Details

COVER CHARGE – $15 adv. (on-line) / $18 door.

Reaching beyond the American Songbooks, Otonowa (“Sound Circle”) explores both popular contemporary and traditional folk melodies of Japan in search of new jazz
standards. In these arrangements, Japanese instruments, such as the shakuhachi (flute) and the fan drum meld with piano, acoustic bass, and drum set. Inspired by relief efforts for the earthquake and
tsunami of 2011,Otonowa interprets the songs of their ancestry with a western jazz sensibility that transcends both worlds. Otonowa will travel to Tohoku for the 5th consecutive year in October to perform and conduct clinics for children.
Please come and celebrate our efforts and if possible, contribute to the cost of our goodwill tour!
