Hello, everyone. I hope you are all doing well. In this time of uncertainty, it feels hard just to keep up with our daily routine since it takes a lot of energy these days, isn’t it? And it has become really difficult to continue to do creative works. What a world we live in. However, the time of our 4DAYS concerts are coming again this year. We got to be energized. I am thinking about some new approaches by making new works with my band that has appeared at this annual event, trying to build the music via some completely new, experimental methodology this year.

On the first day, I will feature EMERGENCY! that appears at the Pit Inn once a year. I would like to reinject the three important elements of jazz: ‘psyche’, ‘swing’, and ‘manly spirit’ into their performance. Three members of the rhythm section of Otomo Yoshihide’s ONJQ, whose new much-awaited album is coming out soon, will be part of the members, too.

I often invite Masahiko Sato to my improvisation concerts, and he will be here with us on the 4DAYS event this year, too. Two of my favorite improvisers Hirose and Takara will join us to present their stunning performances full of rich tones and driving force.

And, for the first time, we will try an experimental project. We are going to get together with various artists who are pursuing the potentials of the beat in various fields, to form an ensemble that can structure the music with rhythms and lines via improvisation, using the sigh system that John Zorn and Santiago Vazquez incorporated into their music. We are hoping to fly into various different worlds via improvisation while intertwining the music of each member’s roots.

On the final day, I will bring my piano trio On The Mountain with some horn players as special guests, to present some original tunes to be included in my upcoming album to be out later this year, as well as some ECM music that is seldom played by jazz musicians in general.

We are not totally sure when the world will calm down again, but we will do our best to bring joy to everyone in the audience. We hope to see you there. – Yasuhiro Yoshigaki

A never-ending cycle of life and death, karmic backlash, the days and months are travelers of eternity, the flow of the river is unceasing.
