Progressive, bombastic, and fast. The Ai Kuwabara Trip project is elevating Japan’s already vibrant Jazz scene. Ai Kuwabara took the stage wearing floral dress and ‘Doc Martins’.
Pianist Kuwabara, bassist Yusuke Morita and drummer Shintaro Imamura, have been traveling on their North American debut since earlier this month.
During an impromptu reception outside the recital hall the group met with fans, many of whom were Japanese students studying abroad in Alaska.
The Ai Kuwabara Trio Project’s first two albums on are available on iTunes.
