Triple Standard – ‘Second Encounter’

Triple Standard are a Japanese trio consisting of leader George Nagata on piano, Daisuke Ito on vocals and Naoto Suzuki on guitar. I caught them recently at the Penang Island Jazz Festival in Malaysia and there were superb, a real surprise in how they reinterpreted some standards in interesting new ways. Check their latest album ‘Second Encounter’, recorded live in Tokyo. And stand by for an interview with George Nagata on my upcoming Tokyo Jazz Map show on December 28th.
