About Yutaka Shiina
Yutaka Shiina, the 43-year-old jazz pianist from Tokyo, is on a short UK tour as co-leader of a coolly authoritative bebop band with the British trumpeter Damon Brown. Shiina has recorded as a leader with the Marsalisites Herlin Riley, Roy Hargrove and Nicholas Payton, and capped his acceptance as a world-stage contender by working with the late Elvin Jones in Jazz Machine. But he keeps his virtuosity throttled back and maintains a hip expressiveness by letting insinuations, nuances and implied swing, and the subtle tick of the rhythm section do much of the work.
