Born 1963 in Shizuoka City, trombonist, composer, arranger and seasoned band leader Yoichi Murata
has played and recorded with international jazz stars, such as David Sanborn, Marcus Miller, Bob
Mintzer, Fred Wesley, Randy Brecker and the late great Michael Brecker. His total immersion in jazz
since college days ensured he is no stranger to global events such as the Montreux Jazz Festival.
Back home in Japan, he was arranger and musical director of the legendary Watanabe Sadao Big
Band from 1996-1999, as well as producing numerous commissioned works in the classical world.
Island Express Jazz Orchestra
From swinging standards to infectious funk, this band does it all, and with such ﬁnesse and style, it is
hard to believe they debuted barely three years ago. The youthfulness of the 18 members does little
to conceal the fat that they are all seasoned players, collectively reaching for musical nirvana.
Surrender yourself to the rush of excitement as IEJO takes you on a roller-coaster ride of the best of
big band music.
