SUDDEN IMPACT 2020 AUTUMN SERIES: MAI SUGIMOTO

October 1, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

SuddenImpact_October_1_2020

Tatsu Aoki brings back the Sudden Impact series with its doorway to Autumn full streaming event, providing a platform for Chicago’s musical artists to create and collaborate, and conduct musical experiments.

Mai Sugimoto is a saxophonist, composer, and active member of Chicago’s jazz and improvisational music scene. Sugimoto draws inspiration from her upbringing in Japan and her roots in jazz to compose and perform from her unique multicultural experience. Born/Raised, her debut album (Asian Improv Records, 2018), explores this cultural and musical binary, juxtaposing, among others, a jazz rendition of a Japanese children’s song alongside compositions inspired by the American jazz idiom. Mai has performed three times at the Chicago Jazz Festival: in 2015 with Hanami, in 2019 as a leader, and in 2018 with renowned bassist Tatsu Aoki, with whom she frequently plays, including appearances in his Fred Anderson Legacy Band.
