Taeko Kunishima

Taeko Kunishima (born in Shizuoka, Japan) is a composer now based in London. She started playing piano at seven. Since moving to England, she has continued to evolve and develop her startling, angular contemporary jazz approach, echoing Thelonius Monk and influences of her native Japan. Alongside her work with many UK jazz artists, she has also been working with musicians from many different cultures and countries, and has built up an impressive range of musical partnerships, ranging from Latin pop to electronic music and contemporary classical music. She has performed live sessions on Resonance FM radio. She released three CDs since 2004 on the 33Jazz label: Space to Be, Red Dragonfly and Late Autumn. Taeko has performed with Europe's leading Shakuhachi player, Clive Bell, since 2006. Their collaborations have included the London Jazz Festival, a UK tour and the National Theatre. During 2009 and 2010 Taeko played live in Germany and Japan, while continuing to compose. Her own compositions are a melodic jazz with a thoroughly contemporary feel, and the Japanese spirit pervading her work.
