Hajime longs to show his listeners the pure and simple beauty of modern jazz music. As a double bass player, Hajime is constantly in search of adventure. Yet he also enjoys taking the part of a dedicated and social accompanist and leader.
The music I create, record and perform with other musicians is a reflection of my imagination and creativity. Moreover, I collaborate with vocalists and engage in other projects as well.
I am a jazz crossover composer and arranger inspired by European traditions, Anglo-American styles and American Songbook, and write vocal and instrumental music. I put my pen on paper both for my own artistry as for other projects. However, I also offer my services as a composer and arranger by assignment.
I am a dedicated, patient and friendly double bass teacher. Also, I tutor in jazz improvisation, solfeggio, composing and arranging. Finally, I can prepare you for conservatory auditions.
