It's Saturday Nite Live!

Duo Dynamique!

 

Greeting all SNL fans.

The FCCJ is 100% open and Saturday Night Live will resume its exciting schedule on July 4th. We are happy to announce longtime supporter and SNL headliner Jonathan Katz will join us with his DUO DYNAMIQUE!

 

 

New York native Jonathan Katz discovered jazz at 11 and played with Count Basie Orchestra great Frank Foster and other jazz giants in his teens. He has performed with famed jazz artists Ray Brown, Lew Tabackin, and Eddie Henderson, with the NHK Symphony and Tokyo Philharmonic, and with enka superstar Itsuki Hiroshi. He is leader of Tokyo Big Band, a 19-piece ensemble that performs his compositions and innovative arrangements of Japanese traditional songs, pianist in the Disney World Beat big band, and occasional arranger for bossa nova singer Lisa Ono.


Joining Jonathan will be bassist Pat Glynn. Since moving to Tokyo in 2007, Pat has played with artists including Lisa Ono, Seiko Matsuda, Junko Yagami, and The Disney Worldbeat Big Band, as well as backing up jazz artists like Eric Alexander, Dick Oatts, and Eddie Henderson. He can be seen around Tokyo at venues like the Blue Note, Cotton Club, Motion Blue, and Body and Soul as well as at some of the many world-class hotels.


DUO ORGANIQUE was born from Jonathan's desire to form duos with an organic sound and a wide range of expressive moods. It is a spontaneous combination of empathetic musical minds rather than a preconceived approach. Listening to each other intently, the duo's improvisations travel to interesting places on an adventurous musical journey. Personnel : Jonathan Katz – piano, Pat Glynn – bass.

And remember, it's free. No cover charge. No music charge. You just can't beat SNL for an exciting, entertaining night out in Tokyo.
