Akira Tana and Otonowa

Drummer Akira Tana has a gilt-edged jazz pedigree: Harvard, the New England Conservatory, and stints with Sonny Rollins, Sonny Stitt, Hubert Laws, Zoot Sims, Lena Horne, Ruth Brown and James Moody. Otonowa brings Akira’s consummate musical mastery into congruence with his deep Japanese cultural roots, showcasing traditional Japanese songs and pop through jazz arrangements. With unique melodies in highly original settings, this will be a performance to remember!

Akira Tana – Drums; Masaru Koga – Reeds & Percussion; Art Hirahara – Piano; Ken Okada – Bass
