WHO IS PERFORMING?

Mitsuo Takahashi

Band Leader

(Alto Saxophone)

Takahashi travelled widely in the States,playing and experimenting with local jazz musicians. His contribution was recognized by the Mayor, winning him the “Honorable Citizenship” of New Orleans. Currently, he runs his own jazz studio and plays regularly in Tokyo and Yokohama.

Kenji Maeda

(Drums)

Maeda has been performing for over 40 years. His hobby started in his college years, but it was his passion for drumming that perfected his competence…right through his working life in the automotive industry. Maeda plays regularly with jazz and banjo bands in Tokyo. Although Dixieland jazz is his love, occasionally he varies his percussion in a *washboard. If he is not ‘jazzing’ Maeda would keep fit with running and skipping.

Chuck Fukuzawa

(Double Bass)

In his college days, Fukuzawa developed a strong liking to the traditional Dixieland jazz. But his career with YKK Zipper brought him all over the world. As a matter of fact,he acquired the stage name of ‘Chuck’ which means ‘zipper’ in Japanese,thereafter replacing his first name… Hiroaki. His popularity as a Dixieland jazz performer has brought him audience in China & Taiwan. He now regularly plays for “Doctor Dixie Saints” & “Surfside Stomp”.

Jiro Miyado

(Guitar)

Miyado started playing the guitar in junior high school. One day,he chanced upon some Afro American blues & soul ; was overwhelmed and thought that this is it! In later years,he moved towards the unique brand of New Orleans Jazz and Swing. He plays both the electric as well as the acoustic guitars and is actively performing in Tokyo and Yokohama.

Tsunekazu Matsudaira

(Clarinet)

As a school boy,Matsudaira was fascinated with jazz. But his career with KDDI Corp made him travel all over the world. He now frequently performs at jazz clubs in Tokyo and occasionally in front of dignitaries which include the Emperor and Empress of Japan.

Atsuko Mishima

(Piano)

If you are at the annual jazz festivals in Shinjuku and Yokohama, you will not miss the lovely face of Mishima stomping away at the keyboard. Living overseas (Riyadh,Saudi Arabia & Jakarta) has surely added flavour to her jazz repertoire. Currently, she teaches jazz  techniques at clubs in Yokohama. If she is not jazzing, you’ll find her mountain climbing,gardening or volunteer works.

Haruka Kawasumi(Saeko)

(Vocal)

Also known as the ‘singing dentist’,Kawasumi is a multi-talented lady who occasionally holds solo art exhibitions at the Ginza art galleries. Endowed with a beautiful voice,her popularity finds her frequently at the annual Shinjuku Jazz Festival and is a sought after performer at jazz clubs in Tokyo.
