Shunosuke Ishikawa @ Batica, September 3rd 2014


Shu Ishikawa had previously made an appearance earlier in the night with Takeshi Nakatsuka, dressed in a slightly French-looking blue striped top, but for the final set of the evening donned a rather dapper suit accented with a tiny gold saxophone on his lapel as the evening took a turn for the jazzier.

Backed up with a cast of talented musicians, the set was one of those where each solo was met with a round of applause from the audience and what can be only described as “jazz-face” – that little “oh!” look when someone reaches the crescendo of their  solo and the rest of the band love it.  I loved it.

He’s just released an album, which you can check out on his homepage (
