Makoto Ozone Trio featuring James Genus and Jeff “Tain” Watts

With pianist Makoto Ozone, bassist James Genus, and drummer Jeff “Tain” Watts

Japanese pianist Makoto Ozone is a musician recognized by jazz fans around the world. He’s resided in both Japan and the United States, and his diverse groups perform in jazz clubs, concert halls, and festivals on multiple continents. Ozone became a serious jazz professional in 1983—the year he graduated from Berklee College of Music, gave a solo recital at Carnegie Hall, and joined Gary Burton’s quartet, starting a musical relationship that continues to this day. Tonight, Ozone brings a trio featuring two of the most in-demand and versatile players in jazz. Drummer Jeff “Tain” Watts is a 2017 Guggenheim Fellow, respected bandleader, and long-term sideman with Wynton and Branford Marsalis, amongst many others. Bassist James Genus has played with Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock, Dave Douglas, Lee Konitz, and Roy Haynes, to name just a few, and he is currently the bassist in the Saturday Night Live Band (you might recognize him as the man sitting on the left, whose laughter is a fairly reliable measure of the host’s performance). Catch Ozone in our intimate venue before he joins the New York Philharmonic for three performances in David Geffen Hall next week!
