Taeko Kunishima

Born:

Taeko Kunishima is Japanese pianist and eclectic composer. Taeko Kunishima was born in Japan and studied classical piano performance at university. On hearing Miles Davis for the first time, her direction changed, leading her to explore the music of many different jazz artists, and to develop her own improvisatory technique whilst studying jazz harmony. ‘I had a long absence from musical activity while living in the Middle East, and shortly after, in my youth. By experiencing different cultures and listening to Japanese classical, jazz and Arabic music, I was inspired to write my own diverse compositions.’ Since moving to England, she has continued to evolve and develop her startling, angular contemporary jazz approach alongside her work with many UK jazz artists, she has also been collaborating with musicians from different cultures and countries and has built up an impressive range of musical partnerships

Musician

Molly Mahoney

I'll conserve my words and avoid giving the full spiel, but Molly Mahoney is more than a client to me. She's the answer to vocal jazz's future, the logical next step from Nicole Henry and Madeleine Peyroux. The crossover artist with a classical voice is releasing a tribute album of sorts, but it's a bit different—it's a tribute to a cousin, Cole Porter.

Molly grew up in a world she credits for taking her as far as she's gone. She began performing with a traveling big band at age ten and hasn't stopped performing since (save for that whole uncomfortable year before the vaccine)
