Jesse Fischer x Takuya Kuroda 
Two of the top jazz/funk bandleaders in NYC join forces for an incredible evening of feel-good grooves and soulful musicianship. With Kuroda just coming off a six-week European tour with José James, and Fischer performing music from his recent ObliqSound release Retro Future, this promises to be a night to remember!

Jesse Fischer
Brooklyn-based pianist/composer Jesse Fischer is an exciting new voice in jazz and soul music. A triple threat as musician, engineer, and producer, Fischer has recorded six albums as a leader with his jazz/funk unit Soul Cycle, most recently the ObliqSound release Retro Future. Fischer is known for his warm, soulful touch, and bold, spacious compositions. As a keyboard player, he has performed with artists as diverse as Stevie Wonder, Freddie Jackson, Engelbert Humperdinck, Laura Izibor, Black Moon, and N'Dambi, and his playing is featured on Anthony Hamilton's Grammy-nominated album Back To Love. In addition, Fischer co-produced and engineered Laura Izibor's Brooklyn Sessions, Vol. 1 EP on Atlantic Records and is currently lending his production/engineering talents to the emerging artists Exenia, Rachel Eckroth, Ezra Brown, Melanie Charles, and Brenda Nicole Moorer.

Takuya Kuroda
With his brilliant tone and soulful, passionate delivery, it's no wonder that young Japanese trumpeter Takuya Kuroda continues to thrive in New York City. Originally from Kobe, Takuya came to the U.S. in 2003 to study at The New School. Since arriving in New York, he has become a fixture on the music scene, performing alongside living legends like Junior Mance, acknowledged masters like Francisco Mela and Pino Palladino, and the rising stars of his generation, including José James, Ben Williams, and Kris Bowers.
