Product Notes

This album showcases wide range of possibilities of harp as improvisational instrument, especially in the context of authentic jazz music. Kosako makes all the specialty techniques sound natural and easy, such as bending note, strumming, lyrical improvisation on intense modulations and so on. You can hear compositions and improvisations on blues, modern jazz, classical-jazz cross over, European style lyrical jazz and traditional tunes such as 'Danny boy' and 'Amazing Grace'. Motoshi Kosako Short Bio: Motoshi Kosako was born in Japan and started his musical training on piano and also guitar. He played acoustic and electric guitar in professional Jazz bands in Tokyo. In 1997, he moved to California and soon after he started playing the harp. He is primarily self-taught and played for Stockton Symphony Orchestra as the principal harpist from 2006-2010. In 2007 he won the second place in Lyon & Healy International Jazz & Pop Harp Competition. His groundbreaking style is noted in Harp Column as "Motoshi Kosako, whose introspective soloing was reminiscent of Keith Jarrett." He performs improvisation and numerous original compositions as solo or in ensembles with top jazz musicians including Grammy award winning reeds player, Paul McCandless, master acoustic bassist, Bill Douglass and innovative electric fret-less bassist, Michael Manring. He released 2 classical solo CDs, a Jazz trio album with rhythm section, a duo album with Paul McCandless, a quartet album including Shakuhachi (Japanese traditional bamboo flute) and a solo jazz harp album. He regularly tour Japan to give concert, lectures and workshops.
