about

'Tokyo Blues' is the new album from Australian multi-instrumental musician, composer and producer Benjamin Harrison.

A follow-up to his debut 2019 contemporary jazz release 'Nomad', Benjamin showcases his versatility as a skilled multi-instrumentalist on 'Tokyo Blues' as he performs on saxophones (soprano, alto, tenor and baritone), piano, keyboards, synthesizers, guitar, bass and percussion.

“The concept for Tokyo Blues arose during a recent trip to Tokyo, one of my favourite cities in the world to visit, where I decided that I’d like to create an album drawing inspiration from some of my biggest influences in the vibrant Japanese jazz fusion scene, such as Hiromi, T-Square, The Seatbelts, Casiopea, Soil & "Pimp" Sessions and Four of a Kind.” – Benjamin

Joining Benjamin on this album are three talented drummers: fellow Adelaidean and former band-mate Ben Todd (Cirque du Soleil), Jordan Perlson (Hiromi, Jeff Coffin, Snarky Puppy) and Japanese drumming prodigy Senri Kawaguchi (Kiyo*Sen, Triangle, Bootsy Collins). Regarding the choice of musicians, Benjamin says “I feel really blessed and fortunate to have such amazing drummers on the album—their energy and intensity just elevates the music to a whole new level”.

A successful crowd funding campaign run on Kickstarter also allowed Benjamin to have the album mixed and mastered by acclaimed engineer Simon Cotsworth, whose extensive production credits include Incognito, The Brand New Heavies and George Benson.
