Brief bio of Hajime Yoshida
Hajime Yoshida is originally from Chiba, Japan. He started playing the guitar at the age of 15. After a year studying how to play the instrument by himself, his parents decided to give him professional lessons by local recording musicians. Even though his interest was playing rock music at first, he went into playing improvised music and jazz as well during his high school period.
He spent 6 years of studying jazz guitar/composition at The University of North Texas. While he was living in Denton, TX, he had great experiences playing with great local musicians. Also, He was very fortunate being able to study with his mentor and guitar teacher, Fred Hamilton. Hajime received a scholarship in the jazz studies while he was attending the college. Hajime also studied with Antonio Hart, David Berkman, Jeb Patton, Johannes Weidenmuller, and Paul Bollenback at Aaron Copland School of Music while he is obtaining a master’s degree in music performance.
He moved to Brooklyn, NY in 2009, and has been a very active musician in New York until now, frequently holds shows in New York venues.
Not only Hajime is a fine guitar player and improviser, his compositions are beautifully done, and they interest audiences. His compositions attract people by contrast between very simple, memorable melodies and complex harmonic and rhythmic ideas.
Hajime’s showcase of compositions, “Unlimitation” will be released in 2012 from Armored Records featuring Sylvester Onyejiaka on tenor sax, Yuka Tadano on bass, and Keita Ogawa on drums.
