News: Jun Miyake Last Picture - Dairo Miyamoto

Posted September 20, 2018

In September 2014, at the backstage of our Paris concert, Dairo asked me to produce his album. “An approach unattached to any existing format, an innovative approach to Jazz. Something collage-like using all the tones of instruments I play, nuances, and styles”. After passionately telling me about his image on what he desired he muttered, “I think the title should be Last Album or Last Picture”. From a contemporary French style to Free Jazz, he was someone with an immeasurable range of musicality. This one individual played the sopranino sax, soprano sax, alto sax, tenor sax, baritone sax, flute, alto flute, clarinet, bass clarinet, even drums, Timpani, and percussions freely. Dairo Miyamoto was an indispensable presence in my music. I never thought for a second that he could ever leave my side. Sealed with his brilliance on his approach of always managing to cut through your expectations in the most delightful way, at times inviting smiles from all his collaborators, or at times shaking them to the core… I dedicate this album to Dairo and Satomi.
