Osami Mizuno's New Album TENMA


Sign in to view read count
Osami Mizuno, a Japanese drummer, just released his first album titled “TENMA."
The music packaged in this CD is based on Jazz, but it is NOT an ordinary so-called Jazz music...it's a mixture of various kinds of music; Jazz, Ambient, Rock, Classical, Japanese and Chinese music. That means, it is the real “Fusion" music.

Morgan Fisher (key, arr)
Kiyoto Fujiwara (accoustic-b)

Osami Mizuno studied with the legendary mentor Alan Dawson in the mid '70s. Since then Vinnie Colaiuta and Steve Smith have been his best friends. While working as a studio musician in Japan, he started his new career as an educator in the '90s to keep Alan Dawson's legacy alive. He published two instruction books, Alan Dawson Drum Method Vol.1 and Alan Dawson Drum Method Vol.2, under the permission by Florence Dawson (Alan's widow).
TENMA is his first album as a leader. This CD is a tribute to his American father Alan Dawson, and his bro Tony Williams.

TENMA is available worldwode at GEMM (http://officemizuno.gemm.com/)

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
