Jazz Guitarist and Vocalist

New York City-born, Tokyo-based jazz guitarist Peter Montgomery has jammed and performed with some of the biggest names in jazz, R&B and hip-hop: Bobby Brown, Rick James, Keith Sweat, Angie Jones, Stanley Brown, Sam & Dave, Javon Jackson and Kenny Garrett to name a few. Kenny Garrett described Peter as a "world-class guitarist." Wow! Peter creates and performs his own music and puts his own unique spin on jazz classics.

The amazingly versatile Japanese vocalist Chisa Murata will be joining Peter for this gig. A native of Nagasaki, Chisa graduated from the Kunitachi College of Music. Showing off the range of her command of music both sacred and popular, Chisa can be heard on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yz0C3Afqm2E) rendering Giulio Caccini's aria "Ave Maria" with operatic flair, performing the plaintive Fukushima folk song "Shin Soma Bushi" to solo biwa accompaniment (https://www.youtube.com/user/LiveMusic12345), and getting down on a rocking version of her original song "Stephanie" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qtm9_7vdZlU).
Some world-class jazz at the FCCJ's Saturday Nite Live will be a great way to get into the swing of the New Year.

And remember: IT'S FREE! No music charge. No table charge. Just pay for your food and drink and enjoy the entertainment!
