Shunzo Ohno Group featuring Lotus Chamber Collective

“Extraordinary” best describes Shunzo Ohno. Considered Japan’s greatest trumpeter while still a teenager, recruited to Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers in 1974, his rise to jazz’s pinnacle — Grammy-winning recordings and international awards – came while overcoming cancer and a serious car accident. Incorporating traditional jazz, hip hop, and Japanese melodies in his music, he creates a tapestry that is distinctly Shunzo Ohno to inspire and unite audiences globally.
