"...prodigious technique ... strong and lyrical melodies akin to James Taylor's, which sink into the mind, inviting subconscious lyric-writing from even the most casual listen."

Nobuki Takamen Trio – CD Release Show
FEATURING:
Nobuki Takamen, guitar
John Lenis, bass
Yutaka Uchida, drums

Guitarist Nobuki Takamen was born in Hiroshima, Japan, in 1977. Jazz historian Scott Yanow describes him as "an excellent improviser in his own bop-inspired style." John Heidt of Vintage Guitar Magazine has also called him "a mature player with keen sense of composition [and] considerable technical skill." A mainstay of the New York jazz scene, Takamen leads his own group, which has toured in the U.S., Canada, and Europe, and has appeared at festivals including the Montreal International Jazz Festival and the Rochester International Jazz Festival. He has also toured annually throughout Japan since 2004.



Takamen has made two albums as a leader for What's New Records. Both his first release Bull's Blues (2006) and his second, From Now On (2008), featuring his quintet, quartet, and trio, are comprised entirely of his original compositions. His third album Live at the Iridium (2010), released on Summit Records, presents a complete, uncut performance from a set at Iridium Jazz Club recorded two weeks after his first Canadian tour in 2009. After touring with his trio in Japan in 2011, Takamen recorded his first guitar trio album, Three Wishes. This upcoming fourth album, featuring his new compositions written for guitar trio, is to be released on Summit Records on August 14, 2012. He celebrates the release of this album with this afternoon's performance at the Blue Note.



Besides leading his group, Takamen frequently performs solo and has performed solo concerts at various venues, including the Montreal Jazz Festival as part of 100% Guitare in 2009. He endorses Acoustic Image Amplifiers, Raezer's Edge Speaker Cabinets, Eventide, Reunion Blues, and Taylor Acoustic Guitars.
