With his brilliant tone and soulful, passionate delivery, it's no wonder that young Japanese trumpeter Takuya Kuroda continues to thrive in New York City. Originally from Kobe, Takuya came to the U.S. in 2003 to study at The New School. Since arriving in New York, he has become a fixture on the music scene, performing alongside living legends like Junior Mance, acknowledged masters like Francisco Mela and Pino Palladino, and the rising stars of his generation, including Josť James, Ben Williams, and Kris Bowers.



Kuroda has released two albums as a leader, Bitter and High (2010) and Edge (2011), both to critical acclaim. He has performed at notable festivals worldwide and at some of the most important live music venues in the country, including the Blue Note, the Jazz Standard, Radio City Music Hall, and the Village Underground.
