Tokyo born composer Miho Hazama, one of New York’s most astounding young talents, will be performing with her signature ensemble "m_unit" at The Cell Theatre, July 12, 2018, 7:30pm. Lauded in Downbeat as one of “25 for the Future,” Miho is quickly establishing herself as a force of nature on the world’s stage. Her masterful understanding of harmony and orchestration combined with a who's who of musicians results in riveting performances to packed adoring audiences at venues such as the Jazz Standard, Blue Note NYC and Tokyo, Dizzy’s Club Coca-cola, and the Jazz Gallery.
After the release of m_unit’s second recording "Time River," All About Jazz had this to say: “At a time when orchestral jazz is either ultra- polished, exceedingly high brow, or a pedestrian pandering to sentimental tastes of yore, Hazama’s boldly organic and singularly exciting collective is a breath of fresh air. Her uncanny ability to remain intellectually stimulating and vibrantly spirited is what makes her work singularly innovative.” m_unit continues to drive towards the future with a scrappy determination and aesthetic that is both beautiful and undeniably sincere."
