Name:Brooklyn Purple
Cat No.:MYCJ-30640

Release Date:10/16/2013
Description:For her third album, young Japanese saxophonist Ayumi Koketsu went to Brooklyn, New York, and went into the studio with three seasoned pros: David Hazeltine on piano, David Williams on bass and Willie Jones III on drums.

Not exactly a heavy weight, Ayumi has a pleasant, breezy tone on her alto and soprano sax. The album opens with one of her five attractive originals, "Signs of Autumn" which describes the transition from one season to another. She demonstrates she can bop and play the blues with Tommy Flanagan's "Freight Trane" and her ballad interpretations on the beautiful "It's Easy To Remember" and "Calling You" which is played by just her and Hazeltine.

Nice, straight-ahead jazz with a contemporary feel by a promising young musician!

Recorded at Systems Two, Brooklyn, New York, on June 20-22, 2013.
