Nobuki Takamen

1977 -

Origin: Japan / United States

Main instrument: Acoustic guitar/electric guitar

Genre: Jazz

Acclaimed for his "prodigious technique," guitarist Nobuki Takamen is an exciting new presence on the North American jazz scene. Blending lyrical melodies with a fluid playing style, the Hiroshima-born, Jersey City-based musician has an impressive repertoire, incorporating everything from hard bop to pop. In 2006, he released Bull's Blues with his band, the Nobuki Takamen Group. Their follow-up, From Now On, hit the shelves two years later and was described by one critic as "an exciting continuation of a promising career." Both albums are comprised entirely of Takamen's original compositions. Three Wishes came out in 2012.
