Japan-born, Brooklyn-based trumpeter Takuya Kuroda

The Japanese-born trumpet player makes his Concord Records debut with the wildly diverse and infectiously funky Zigzagger

For Immediate Release – Whether moving from Japan to the U.S. or navigating between the influences of jazz, soul, hip-hop, Afrobeat and electronica, trumpeter/composer Takuya Kuroda has never followed a straight path. On his fifth studio album and Concord Records debut, the aptly named Zigzagger, Kuroda darts between those wide-ranging interests with a funky swagger and an intensely swinging vigor. The deeply infectious album, due out October 7, 2016, finds the trumpeter snaking his way around the opposing poles of acoustic and electric, bristling grooves and blissed-out vibes, punchy brass and fluid synths, carving his own distinctive sonic path along the way.

“Life is sometimes not that easy, sometimes not so difficult, and it should never go straight,” Kuroda says. “It’s always zigzagging. So I put i

It’s a group that knows how to lock in and lock it down... Kuroda is an artist who knows just where to place a note or start a run" -Downbeat “No one sounds like Takuya...His tone, warmth and most of all his storytelling have inspired me for years. His writing is soulful, modern, and effortlessly bridges the gap between jazz and soul, and between history and tomorrow." -José James Takuya Kuroda is an ascendant trumpeter and composer who is perhaps best known for his inspired presence in vocalist José James’ band over the past several years. Before Kuroda arrived in the U.S. in 2000, he grew up in Kobe, Japan and followed his older, trombone-playing brother’s footsteps by joining the junior high school jazz band. Kuroda eventually came to the U.S. where at the Berklee College of Music he had his first formal jazz studies. “I never had a jazz music teacher in Japan. I took my first music theory, ear training and jazz ensemble classes for the first time in my life in English, which made it even crazier," he says, “ But that made me want to come to New York." Since his arrival, the now Brooklyn-based Kuroda has been leading his own bands and has self-released and self-produced three previous albums: Bitter and High, Edge, and Six Aces which helped springboard his wildly successful 2015 Blue Note release, Rising Son. Kuroda is already an integral voice in the NYC afrobeat scene, and hopes to cement his reputation as an intrepid musical force with his new album ZIGZAGGER from Concord Records arriving in October 2016
