ジャズフルーティスト

ピアノ、ギター、ベースプレイヤー、作曲家

首都圏を中心に音楽活動をしていたが、自然と共生する生活に惹かれ、九州に移住。

 子供の頃、バディ・メリルのギターの多重録音によるラテン音楽、フォーレ、イベール等のフランス近現代クラシックフルート音楽、ソニー・クラーク、ホレス・シルバー等のハードバップジャズの虜になる。これらがきっかけとなり、音楽を始める。小学生の時、フルートを教わるためにジャズミュージシャン宅へ通い出す。

 その後、より多様なジャンル(ジャズ、クラシック、現代音楽、ロック、フュージョン、ソウル、ファンク、ポップス、電子音楽、ワールドミュージック等)の音楽に触れ、中学生の頃から、あくなき探究心により、ピアノ、オルガン、シンセサイザー、ギター、ベース等、様々な楽器と作編曲、多重録音、音響技術を覚える。

  また芸術と哲学全般に深い関心を持ち、音楽を絵画や建築物、楽器は絵具や建材と考え、一人で多重録音による作品を制作するようになる。 

 現在、フルートでヒーリングジャズのデュオEarth Colors、ピアノトリオ、ギターカルテット、ベースでのビッグバンドへのサポート等のジャズ演奏活動を福岡、宮崎、鹿児島等で行っている。 風貌から、ときに'70年代の生きた化石と言われる…

 

Jazz Flutist

Piano, Guitar, Bass player & Composer

Although he engaged himself in music activities mainly in the metropolitan area, he moved to Kyushu

because he has been attracted to living in harmony with nature.

  He was captivated by the Latin music of guitar multi recording by Buddy Merrill,  modern French classical flute music by Gabriel Fauré, Jacques Ibert and etc. and hard bop jazz by Sonny Clark, Horace Silver and etc. when he was a child. These were the starting points of his music life. He went to the house of a jazz musician to learn the flute when he was in elementary school. 

  And then He has experienced the music of more various genres (Jazz, Classical music, Contemporary classical music, Rock, Fusion, Soul, Funk, Pop music, Electronic music, World music etc.) 

Since junior high school students, He started to learn various instruments such as piano, organ, synthesizer, guitar, bass etc., as well as composition and arrangement, multiple recording, and acoustic technology with insatiable inquisitiveness. 

  He also has a deep interest in art and philosophy in general. He began to creat the music by multiple recording alone, thinking of music as paintings and buildings, musical instruments as paints and building materials.

  Currently, he plays jazz performances such as healing jazz duo "Earth Colors" on flute, piano trio, guitar quartet and support musician for big band on bass in Fukuoka, Miyazaki, Kagoshima and other places.

 Sometimes it is said that he is a living fossil of the seventies because of the atmosphere... lol

 ジャズが国境を越えて世界的に各々の文化の中で広まったことから、ジャズを生成する何らかの構造とそれによる再構築がおそらく普遍的側面を持ち存在するのだろうと考え、それを”Meta-jazz”と仮説設定、探究している。

※ 註:ジャズの定義は諸説あって、何をもってジャズとするかは大変難しい問題であるが、ジャズを足らしめるものとして「即興作曲、即興演奏」、「スイング感」といった要素はもとより、コアに「ブルース」というものがあるかないかというところで、議論は大きく分かれるであろう。本人の考えとしては「ブルース」といった要素が、少なくともコアにあるものがジャズであって、そうでないものはどちらかというと広義にフュージョンに分類されるといった見方をしている。

 

  As jazz spread across the borders worldwide in each culture, He thinks that some structure that creates jazz and its reconstruction probably has a universal aspect. He hypothesizes it as "Meta-jazz" and explore it.

  Annotation : There are various views of "jazz" definition, it is a very difficult question as to "what is  jazz?"  As elements of establishing " jazz", the elements such as "improvisation" and "feeling of swing" are considered at least. Whether there is "blues" in the central core or not, the discussion would be divided.

He thinks what has a element such as "blues" at least in the central core, is "jazz". He takes the view that something that is not so, is rather classified as "fusion".
