Takuya Kuroda

Takuya Kuroda’s new album “Rising Son’ came out this week on Blue Note. Brought up in Kobe Japan and now a native of Brooklyn, Takuya played trumpet in Jose James’ band on last year’s ‘No Beginning No End’ tour. Jose produced ‘Rising Son’ and sings on the Roy Ayers classic track “Everybody Loves the Sunshine’. “No one sounds like Takuya,” says James. “.His writing is soulful, modern, and effortlessly bridges the gap between jazz and soul, and between history and tomorrow.” I was at the sold out Rockwood release party  – Takuya blew the roof off – buy the album.
