Joris Posthumus Group

Joris joined the band Stat of Monc for a tour through China. On this tour he met Yuichiro Tokuda, a Japenese saxophonist who was also touring with his band in China. After this tour Joris and Yuichiro kept in touch and in 2014 Joris was invited for a tour in Japan and Korea, to join Yuichiro and his band.

On this tour Joris had the opportunity to play with many different musicians and see a lot of the beautiful jazz venues in Japan.
Back in the Netherlands he started composing new songs, inspired by his Japanese trip and musical encounters there.
April 2015 Joris invited Yuichiro Tokuda to join him for a small club tour in Holland and Belgium. This was a good way to test out some of the new tunes.

The Plan
After talking to Challenge Records International, the record company that released my cd 'The Abyss' the plan arose to go back to Japan in September 2015 to record a album.

Prior to the recordings the group did four concerts in Tokyo as preparation for the two recording days in the studio. In Japan Joris recorded a new album with sound engineer Neeraj Khajanchi @NK SOUND TOKYO. Mixing was done @studio Wedgeview by Udo Pannekeet and Pascal Vermeer. Mastering by Steve Fallone @Sterlingsound New York. Release by Challenge Records is planned for september 2016. You can read more about the trip to Japan on my journal page
