Satoshi Takeishi is another old friend, who I’m happy to have here! Satoshi is a great drummer, percussionist, and composer.
He has played, toured and recorded with lots of great musicians, including Ray Barretto, Carlos ‘Patato’ Valdes, Eliane Elias, Marc Johnson, Eddie Gomez, Randy Brecker, Dave Liebman, Anthony Braxton, Mark Murphy, Herbie Mann, Paul Winter Consort, Rabih Abu Khalil, Toshiko Akiyoshi Big Band.
Currently, he is working on several interesting projects, which we talk about in the interview, including working with his wife, Shoko, who is a fine pianist and composer.
Satoshi and I met at Berklee in 1982. It’s interesting that we’re still having the same conversation all these years later.
Come and join the conversation.
