This week we have a live radio session with 10 baritone-saxophone members of Tokyo Chutei Iki.
During there stay in Brussels we recorded with them this session (24/11).
Many thanks to Bonnefooi for using there space to record this session and to the Café Improvisé and also to Nathalie Vériter for translating during the interview.
Tokyo Chutei Iki was founded by Akira Mizutani as a baritone-saxophone duo. During the years more and more baritone-saxophone players joined the formation. Actually they are with 13 members.
They played on the "North Sea Jazz Festival" (2010 & 2012), "Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club" (2010 & 2014), "London Jazz Festival" (2006 & 2008)...... and many, many more places.
They were in Belgium between 23/11 and 25/11. They did 5 concerts, 1 in Ghent and 4 in Brussels, and a radio session for Radio Panik. For this European Tour they were with 10 baritone-saxophone players.
