NEWS

MURAL feat. Chris Potter

 
 

After our third Around-The-World-Tour with concerts in Chile, Europe and the U.S. in 2019, we are currently working on our third album. We got a head start on the new recording project with the inimitable Chris Potter on saxophone as a guest artist.

Unfortunately, our touring and recording plans for 2020 have been affected by the corona crisis.

We hope that you are safe and healthy, and we hope to see you very soon!

Stay tuned for more news!

ABOUT


MURAL is a collective group made of three rising jazz stars in New York.
The group showcases each members' virtuosic instrumental skills as well as their refined compositions. Subtle influences of European classical music, Japanese folk, and South American rhythms are just one the culmination of the multiple nationalities and cultures represented in the band. The band's collaboration is apparent through their balanced sound, wide dynamics, and seamless interaction.
MURAL is truly a band effort – a single instrument with three musicians.

  • "[...] after their debut album and following concerts and tours, the band found an all-around coherent, organic soundscape that is perfectly custom tailored for each of the band members. Very fresh, delightfully laid back, and unpretentiously modern." 

    Sven Thielmann, Fono Forum 7/2018 (Germany)

  • "On their second album, Mural confirms their cross-cutting perspective, ranging from moments of electric excitement – a "revisited fusion" of sorts which is evident in tunes like "Giacomo!" and "Geronimo" – to songs with acoustically reflective moods, veined with folk tinges.
    The marked interplay among the band members as well as the melodic and rhythmic appeal of the compositions represent a common thread throughout the album." 

    Angelo Leonardi, All About Jazz Italia, June 13th, 2018

  • “Guitarist Aki Ishiguro […] favors a technically delicate, unpretentious way of playing, that fully complements the trio. With [German] bassist Peter Schwebs and the Chilean drummer Rodrigo Recabarren he found kindred spirits. MURAL had beautiful, intricate and thrilling compositions like ‘Neruda’ (Aki Ishiguro) and ‘Spätsommer’ (Peter Schwebs).”

    Christian Emigholz, Weserkurier March 5th, 2017 (MIBNIGHT Jazzfestival Bremen/Germany)

  • "The three members do not seek to surprise with special effects. They excel in achieving a sincere and sophisticated music." 

    Neri Pollastri, All About Jazz, May 23rd, 2017

  • "[...] the international trio MURAL has just presented an impressive CD. The organization of their music is as skillful and clever as their ability to play together. Their music is always filled with new colors – well structured but never stringent."

    Michael Laages, NDR "Album of the week" (Northern German Broadcasting), June 2nd, 2016

  • "This multinational trio's album is full of charm."

    Rieko Hirata, Way Out West 6/2016 (Japan)

  • "A refreshing debut in a classic jazz guitar trio format… [Ishiguro] shows in the ten pieces why the NY jazz scene appreciates this rising star so much […] – a very promising young jazz guitarist."

    Alexander Schmitz, Jazzpodium 6/2016 (Germany)
