"This is what modern jazz should be all about..." - Dave Liebman
"It’s inspiring to hear such creative and intelligent music being made by the younger generation – it gives me hope for the future!” - Mike Nock

Bungalow’s sound is sometimes introspective, sometimes bold and energized but always is highly emotionally engaging. The melodies are often simple, like folk music from the future and with their feet planted in the cool school of jazz, the Japanese based group maintains an emotional vulnerability; their beating hearts delivered up on spikes for the audience to devour. These four musicians strive to balance this openness and simple clarity, with their virtuosity and group interplay, to create musical landscapes that may indeed express the intangible. Featuring the 2017 National Jazz Award winning saxophonist, Mike Rivett, this unique ensemble is not to be missed.
