March 30 @ 7:00 pm

$10.00 – $55.00

“Takuya Kuroda Mixes Up Jazz, Funk, Post-Bop…On Cutting Edge ‘Midnight Crisp’…It’s rather remarkable…” states GLIDE MAGAZINE (2022 Album Review). “While Kuroda has expressed a desire to return to playing the more straight ahead jazz…the seam of creativity that runs through this modern fusion collection appears far from exhausted,” says ALL ABOUT JAZZ. “You can place the trumpeter next to 20th-century Japanese virtuosos such as Toshiko Akiyoshi, Masabumi Kikuchi, Ryo Fukui, and Koichi Matsukaze, and he looks extremely comfortable in the lineage…” states PITCHFORK.
