Yokohama Calling is a UK based operation working with Japanese artists to promote Japanese music and culture outside of Japan. The vision is to bring UK and Japanese artists together - to foster the spirit of collaboration, to create new bonds and make great music.
“Fukumori is among the most poetic of drummers, his light touch lending only the necessary textures and rhythms: reminiscent of the late, great drummer Paul Motian, a frequent contributor to ECM recordings.”
Mark Sullivan, allaboutjazz.com
“Intensly melodic, eventful and full of surprises... The beauty of tone that Iain Ballamy gets is certainly one of the joys of the current scene, and his concern with creating it echoes Stan Getz’s.”
Andy Hamilton, Jazz on CD
