About Seiki Yukimoto
After spending his early adult years on the lower east side of New York City studying and eventually playing trumpet with his roommate the acclaimed trumpeter Don Cherry, Seiki “Yuki” Yukimoto returned to Osaka, Japan with a renewed musical vision. His inspiration led him to form Soulbleed, a group famous for its jam sessions and passionate style. Seiki Yukimoto plays both the trumpet and quena at these usually sold out events.
As an homage to the city that gave him so much inspiration and is his musical muse, Seiki Yukimoto has returned to New York to play a concert almost yearly since 2008. He assembles a group of living Jazz legends for this explosive and dynamic performance featuring Soulbleed East Meets West. The recently released double CD “Six Sense Live” is the fourth for Seiki Yukimoto and Soulbleed. Mr Yukimoto was just featured in Jazz Japan and extensively interviewed in Japan’s Jazz Critique magazine where more biographical information can be found.
