This event has passed

Named among Downbeat’s “25 for the Future,” Tokyo-born Miho Hazama is one of the most promising and talented composers/arrangers of her generation.

Hazama is the chief conductor of the Danish Radio Big Band and a permanent guest conductor of the Metropole Orkest and has composed and arranged work for jazz luminaries like Joshua Redman, Stefon Harris and Gil Goldstein. m_unit, her 13-piece New York-based jazz chamber orchestra, plays a unique brand of music that is bold, swinging, beguilingly melodic and, most importantly of all, accessible to jazz lovers and newcomers alike.

Run Time: 1hr and 30min with no intermission.

Watch & Listen


At a time when orchestral jazz is either ultra- polished, exceedingly high brow, or a pedestrian pandering to sentimental tastes of yore, Hazama’s boldly organic and singularly exciting collective is a breath of fresh air.
