Grammy-nominated composer Miho Hazama is one of the most promising and talented composers/arrangers of her generation. Lauded in Downbeat as one of “25 for the Future”, Hazama has developed her signature jazz chamber orchestra, dubbed m_unit. Now having three full-length releases on Universal Music Japan/Sunnyside Records, Hazama has written for and expertly showcased the abilities of guest artists such as Joshua Redman, Lionel Loueke, Stefon Harris, and Gil Goldstein, to name a few. Her debut album Journey to Journey received the Jazz JAPAN rising star award, and she has been featured in such influential publications as Downbeat, The New York Times, NPR, JazzTimes among others. Her third album “Dancer In Nowhere” was nominated to the 62nd Grammy Awards. As All About Jazz writes, “Hazama’s boldly organic and singularly exciting collective is a breath of fresh air. Her uncanny ability to remain intellectually stimulating and vibrantly spirited is what makes her work singularly innovative.”

m_unit features: Jonathan Powell, trumpet; Adam Unsworth, French horn; Ethan Helm, alto sax, flute; Jason Rigby, tenor sax, clarinet; Garrett Wingfield, baritone saxophone, bass clarinet; Tomoko Akaboshi, Violin; Ben Russell, Violin; Matt Consul, Viola; Meaghan Burke, Cello; Billy Test, piano; James Shipp, vibraphone; Edward Pérez, bass; Jared Schonig, drums
