Miho Hazama and m_unit

6pm doors • 7pm show


Regarded as a modern-day pillar of the burgeoning big band scene, Charlie Parker Jazz Composition Prize winner Miho Hazama and her 13-piece jazz chamber orchestra m_unit come to National Sawdust to present work from their new album Dancer in Nowhere.

With pieces like “Today, Not Today”, which slowly unfurls a sweeping cinematic vision, and an interpretation of John Williams’ “Olympic Fanfare and Theme”, Dancer in Nowhere “veers through frenzied jolts, twists and turns” (Time Out New York).

Catch the composer and big band leader jazz critic Dan Ouellette calls “a vital young artist who is delivering a singular style of music” (Downbeat Magazine) for a night of lush, inviting, large-ensemble jazz.
