Hishakaku Quartet - Album Launch (AUS/JPN)

An album that was born out of a spontaneous recording session in Tokyo of friends between tours (and yakitori bars).  James Macaulay, Niran Dasika, Marty Holoubek and Shun Ishiwaka’s favourite yakitori bar, hidden away in Ekoda (west Tokyo), Hishakaku, was the natural thing to name the band after. Comprising compositions from Macaulay, Dasika and Holoubek, the chordless quartet goes from lyrical, hymn like gentleness to high intensity improvisation and groove.

Featuring the winner and runner up of the 2017 National Jazz Awards, James Macaulay and Niran Dasika, the powerhouse bass player that is Marty Holoubek - now based in Tokyo, and legendary Japanese drummer Shun Ishiwaka.

Tonight will feature Macaulay, Dasika, the amazing Sam Anning in place of Holoubek, and for his first tour of Australia, Shun Ishiwaka.
