Miho Hazama and M_Unit at Dizzy’s Club in NYC
Tokyo-born composer Miho Hazama is one of New York’s most distinctive young talents. Lauded in DownBeat as one of “25 for the Future,” Hazama is a classically trained, jazz-oriented pianist with a bold and unique compositional voice. Her 13-piece jazz chamber orchestra m_unit includes strings, horns, woodwinds, and a piano/bass/drums rhythm section. The group moves fluidly through a distinct hybrid of big band jazz, contemporary classical music, and pop that gives ample attention to both swinging jazz solo sections and sweeping, through-written passages that make full use of the eclectic instrumentation. The music is well-written and full of surprises, the musicians are spectacular, and it’s all much more widely accessible than it might sound on paper, particularly for listeners without a lot of experience with jazz. Don’t miss her at Dizzy’s Club.
