Jonathan Katz's Trio Organique

 

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. Jonathan is also an avid music educator who teaches private lessons as well as improvisation, composition, arranging, and big band at the Kunitachi Music Academy in central Tokyo.

TRIO ORGANIQUE was born from Jonathan's desire to form a trio with an organic sound and a wide dynamic range. It is a meeting of empathetic musical minds rather than a band with a set repertoire. Listening to each other intently, the trio's improvisations travel to interesting places on an adventurous musical journey.
