The free-spirited sounds & remarkably progressive structures that shine throughout Brooklyn-based artist Ayumi Ishito’s music are a stunning reflection of her life-long love for the true magic of Jazz. From the first moment that Ayumi began to lead and compose music with an extraordinarily gifted & talented surrounding group of musicians that would become her official band in 2011, every step they’ve taken together since has been a solid step forward in the name of their art, craft, and creativity.
Through their collaborative efforts and complementary styles, they’d go on to refine their colorfully expressive sound into a gorgeous set of imaginative & sonically-adventurous music & melodies to form Ayumi Ishito’s debut album, View From A Little Cave, in 2016, and together, they broke through to the next-level.
Inspired by the love & support from fans all over the globe discovering their wildly imaginative style of music and connecting with the beautifully artistic & avant-garde ideas composed by Ayumi and played so passionately from her tenor saxophone – Ishito & her band immediately went back to jamming, writing, improvising, experimenting, and soon enough, recording a whole new set of entirely organic material.
Embracing the true nature of Jazz and going where the music would take her, Ayumi drew inspiration from listening to Progressive/Indie Rock & Free Jazz artists/bands, and through other mediums, like watching late-night Horror/Sci-Fi movies, which played a more pivotal role in her creativity, becoming the source for the name of her brand-new album being released on April 26th, 2019 – Midnite Cinema.
