|Yasuhiro Yoshigaki 4DAYS
The opening day of our 4DAYS will feature Orquesta Libre + Dairo Suga + Ryuichi Yoshida "play Duke" to commemorate the 120th anniversary of Duke Ellington's birth. We are proud of being regarded as one of the few bands that inherit the bawdy, hot sounds of The Duke Ellington Orchestra. The jazz master Ken-san, who was a good friend of Duke, might come to see us on this show.
On the second day, we will feature our Vincent Atomicus after a long silence. We will present an ensemble of a unique form of twin violins and twin drums to play the music that sounds like partly folk music, partly minimal and progressive music.
On the third day, we will present a special improvisation night with the Altered States, the band I have been playing with for the longest time among all the bands I were on. We cannot reveal the details of the show, but I bet it will be a very special night.
On the final day, we will present a debut concert of our new percussion unit that I formed recently for this 4DAYS event. A little bit different from the Orquesta Nudge! Nudge!, a percussion unit that played the soundtrack of this year's NHK Historical Drama, this is a small-size trans percussion trio. We are pursuing the modern taste of the percussion music by blending various rhythms of songs and dances from around the word into our music. You will see some rare instruments in our show, too.
All these new challenges are only possible at the Pit Inn, and we will put together familiar musicians. Enjoy the mesmerizing four days!
