Known for using elements of traditional jazz, hip hop, and melodies from Japan in his music, he creates a tapestry that is distinctly Shunzo Ohno in his performances, which inspire and unite audiences globally. Shunzo has brought together his long-time colleagues: Ira Coleman (bassist for Sting and Herbie Hancock), Gene Jackson (drummer for Herbie Hancock and Dave Holland), Tabla master Ray Spiegel, and pianist David Berkman for these special brunch performances.
