TReS Special 3DAYS

On the first day, we will feature ‘Baila TReS’ that made two CDs, with the members who have developed a deep connection through years of touring. “Baila” means “dance” in Spanish, and the thrilling back-and-forth interplay that unfolds over a fun, danceable groove is the essence of this band.

On the second day, we will feature the father and son band ‘TReS’ performing for the first time with another father and son band, the Ishii-ke (Ishii Family). The aesthetic and brilliant world of the Ishii-ke, featuring a pianist and a violinist, will surely give a new inspiration to TReS. Expectations are especially high for the first encounter between the two second-generation Japanese, who are still in their twenties.

On the third day, “TReS” will be welcoming three talented performers. The members were all old acquaintances who knew each other well. The feast of TReS and the musicians, who are capable of playing a wide variety of repertoire including Brazilian, Latin, jazz, and free music, is a fun and harmonious festival.

Shun Ishiwaka 3DAYS - 6 Concerts

How is everyone doing? I’m Shun Ishiwaka. We are pleased to announce that we will be having 3DAYS at Pit Inn again this year, on three Fridays: October 8, 15, 29. Although the situation in the world is unstable, live music is an irreplaceable vibration of time and air.

The 8th is a duo with Ohzora Kimishima, a musician of my generation. He has an amazing guitar technique and his compositions are also very moving.

On the 15th, Boys Trio, a trio consisting of Hideaki Kanazawa and Akira Ishii, with whom I have been making music for more than half my life, will perform. And this year, SMTK (myself, Marty Holoubek, Tokutaro Hosoi and Kei Matsumaru) released a new album. We will be performing at the Pit Inn, the birthplace of SMTK. It’s also between release tours, so the performance will be fully polished.

The program on the 29th is still a secret, but we are planning a very exciting performance. We hope that you will all take care of yourselves and come to our events as much as you can. I am looking forward to seeing you all.

– Shun Ishiwaka

Toshiyuki Honda BarnIing Wave Quartet Special with May Inoue New CD 「Mr. C.C」 Release Concert

The Toshiyuki Honda Burning Wave Quartet is supported by people who love Toshiyuki Honda’s passion for the saxophone, and has released two albums to date, and continues to carry out ambitious activities. Toshiyuki Honda BW4 will be releasing their third new album ‘Mr. C.C’ on Wednesday, November 24, 2021, under the Pit Inn label. This new album is dedicated to the great pianist Chick Corea, who was also one of Toshiyuki Honda’s idols, and includes Honda’s newly written songs as well as Chick Corea’s originals.

This time, the recording members were Soichi Noriki and Shingo Okudaira, the regular members of the band, and Gregg Lee, an old friend of ours. We played very well together, keeping the excellent groove of the band. And with the addition of up-and-coming superstar guitarist May Inoue, we have the perfect sound to anticipate the future of this unit. The love for Chick Corea expressed by Toshiyuki Honda with the best members of this group is a manifestation of the love for Chick Corea in Japan. Don’t miss this special show with the new album!
